Life isn’t always about action, its about reaction. Often things are out of our control and the only thing we can do is respond appropriately to each and every situation. That’s what differentiates a happy person from a miserable one. Not everything in life will be beautiful and perfect, but you can make it that way if you choose to see the best in every situation.
I know a young woman, (lets call her Jane) who acts like the world is ending almost every minute of every day. Jane is constantly arguing with people when things don’t go her way and she is a strong believer in the fact that the world is against her. She’s a nightmare to be around and she wonders why she doesn’t have many friends or family that want to spend time with her.
On the other hand I know another girl, (We’ll call her Jenny) who is the most vibrant of all people that I know. She’s had hard times and she isn’t afraid to admit that but she is radiant through it all. Jenny chooses to be happy no matter the situation at hand. She reminds herself that she can get through anything and she looks to her friends and family for guidance and advice instead of pushing them away when she’s down. I can honestly say that Jenny brings the best out of everyone. She makes people around her feel at ease and everyone leaves her feeling happier than they were before.
We can all be a Jenny. We can all choose to be happy and free of stress. Remember that life is all about reaction. You can have a beautiful life. Just make the decision to be positive and stick to it.
