Your happiness is up to you

Happysummer“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

– Abraham Lincoln

 

 

 

 

If nobody has told you yet, please take note: you are in charge of your own happiness.

Please do not wait for someone else – a child, a spouse, a friend – to make you happy. Look in the mirror, because the responsibility for any needed action begins and ends there.

Many people understand that they are captains of their own happiness.

Still, other people are unhappy and will complain constantly about it. They will wring their hands, blame other people or circumstances, and wait for someone other than themselves to change the situation.

There’s a better way.

Nearly everyone has to suffer through tough breaks in life. When it happens to you, it’s your responsibility to pick yourself off the floor, dust yourself off and move forward.

And when life is good, take time to reflect.

In short, your happiness is up to you.
