Thought for the Day: MISERY IS OPTIONAL!
I decided that "the thought" deserved to be bold and larger than "normal". The choice is yours. You can decide to be sad or you can decide to be happy. I decided to be happy.
To give credit where credit is due. The "Thought" came to me many years ago during a workshop. We were given the task of writing on a blackboard (do they still exist?) our favorite quote/expression/advice...whatever. My friend and coworker, LuAnn, wrote this one. The choice to be sad or happy came to me when I overheard a friend, "J", comment to another friend.
I like to think about this and realize the choice is mine. If I am miserable, it is my choice. I am a "half-full" person so I always find the good in any situation. It is your choice to be half-full or half-empty.
At times this is a bore to my family and friends, especially, if they are half-empty. My mother would tell me that she didn't want to hear any of the "Pollyanna" stuff. Obviously, she was a "half-empty" and liked it that way...her choice.
