Life is...

July 18, 2018

Do you feel stuck? Do you think that you have no control over whatever it is that is going on in your life – over whatever it is that is bothering you? And it keeps troubling you simply because you cannot let it go.

Let me tell you something. You are in control. You have the power over your life. There is a simple tool for happiness. It’s called choice.

You can choose to be sulky and in a bad mood whenever a problem arises. Or, you can choose to look at that problem right in the eye and smile. If you can solve it, then choose to do so. If it’s beyond you, then you don’t have a problem to start with. You only have gloomy thoughts you have chosen to linger on. Guess what? There’s no better choice than to let those go.

Think of your thoughts, emotions, life events, plans and intentions as of balloons. The key to happiness is knowing when to hold on to them and when to let them fly away.
