The good news is that we can choose this for ourselves, moment to moment, no matter what. I find that a very empowering thought.
External situations and material objects may bring us satisfaction, enjoyment and excitement, but they will never truly offer you lasting happiness. You could be the richest person on the planet and still be miserable.
True, lasting happiness can only come from within you and your mindset. Are you inclined to see beauty, growth opportunities and soul experiences in everything that happens? Or are you someone who only sees the struggles and obstacles, and is easily defeated?
I seem to say this nearly every week, but it is a resounding truth that everything comes back to: LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT.
What kind of week will you choose to have this week? (Hint: a good one!)
