Being happy is a personal thing and it really doesnt have to do with anyone else.
Everything we need, our courage, strength, compassion and love; everything we need is already within us.
Not all transformations are seen from the outside.
If we knew how capable we are, we'd stop worrying and start amazing ourselves!
Everything we want is on the other side of fear and the only thing between what we are and what we want is really just a big leap of faith.
When something bad, discouraging, or unexpected happens we have three choices. We can either let it define us, let it destroy us, or we can let it strengthen us.
We must remember that our struggles are part of our story, and we must never forget how far we've come, everything we have gone through, all the times we've pushed on even when we felt we couldn't, all the mornings we got out of bed no matter how hard it was, all the times we've wanted to give up but got through another day and never forget how much strength we have learned and developed.
I have to stop and remind myself of these things daily. It's that everyday mindset that will make a world of difference.
Because heres the thing, the kids attitudes will change, the house will get clean, the bills will get paid, the scale will only be a numerical reflection of my relationship with gravity, and thats it. Life will go on and none of these things define or measure my beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, and love that I have within.
So today I choose to be happy. To be humble. To be encouraged. To learn. To listen. To love. .
