Following this tweet by Dear Brother Dennis Cardiff:
Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Choose wisely.- Vala Afshar
These are Not only things to Live By;
They are also things that Make Us Live, Allow Us to Keep on Living, Give Us the Strength to go on Living, even Happily, particularly at times when We want to give up and Die!
Years ago I had learnt this lesson, though I got the words slightly differently, viz, Decide to be Happy.
Of course, in time, We learn that not everything brings happiness, and that Only Certain things do. But once We have decided, it becomes possible for Us to pursue those same, and Achieve Happiness on a day to day basis.
Note: Irom remained on Fast for longer than that, but now she has given it up, following ‘promises’ by the govt. Which the govt has Not fulfilled. 😦
Let Us Choose to be Happy; Let Us Decide to be Happy! 🙂 🙂 🙂
And let Us also remember that it is not only just about happiness!
