For most days of our life, that should be our goal.
I’m not saying that we don’t have our crosses to bear. Everyone has problems. It’s not exclusive to a specific sex, race, financial status or religion. It’s encompassing. It’s complicated.
No matter who you are, remember, we all deserve a life we become excited about. A morning we look forward to. A life that’s filled with challenges and yet excitement. We need to surround ourselves with real people. True friends who will stand by us even in the worst of days. Friends who will tell us what we don’t want to hear because they actually care for you and not because they’re there to please you. Friends and family who spark our inner most desires at being the best we can be.
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
If we allow ourselves to be looked down upon or bullied around, then we only deserve what we get. And no one has that single authority over sorrow. If we allow it, we are complicit to it.
The month is almost done. And February is around the corner. Choose to be happy. Write a new chapter. Make sure sorrow doesn’t live there anymore.
