"happiness is a choice" - shaycarl

one of my favorite quotes is by a you tuber called Shaycarl.

"happiness is a choice"

its that simple. you can choose to take the proverbial lemons life has given you and complain about how sour they are. or you can work your butt off and end up with lemonade.

hears the thing people tend to forget about that expression. turning lemons into lemonade takes work and determination. its not as easy as the saying makes it sound.

i have found this on a personal level recently. their has been so much bad stuff around me. but there has also been a whole lot of good that i have failed to notice. God will never allow us to be surrounded by only bad things. even in our dankest situations their will be pinpricks  of light surrounding you ... you just have to chose  see them

you have to make a dessition every morning to wake up and say. i am not going to let life get me down today. if you do i think you will find that your day that you thought was going to go bad , suddenly doesn't .the power of positive thinking is HUGE.

so in the words of someone much wiser than me

"always look on the bright side of life !"

because here is the thing. are you going to decide to sit there and sulk about how unfair life is ? or are you going to pull your socks up and so something about changing your life.

you cant always change your circumstances but you can always change your outlook on them , or the way you react to that scenario

so i don't buy into that "their is nothing i can do about it , its hopeless" mentality .... of coerce its not ... it just feels that way right now

so to the person who i was talking to this morning and provoked this blog post ...

if you don't like it, change it

sorry for the rant guys

see ya next time

  1. I Love reading your blog. It is so true that you often need to "make lemonade" To turn things around. I often have days where I identify with the saying "You can make lemonade when life gives you lemons, but without sugar and water, your lemonade is going to suck!" The thing that really helps is learning how to find that sugar and water in life so you can finally make that lemonade when you are stuck with lemons. This is an active process that is more than just a mind set and that is when is missing with the old saying. Thank you for sharing and expanding on it.
