Normally I’ve always had a lot to look forward to, good friends, time with family…
You always hear that you can’t let the “things, or others” rule your life.
Here’s the sad news, it totally does. That isn’t to mean that I have agressive screaming attacks… but it does mean that when I have a good walk with a friend I feel happier. When my husband is home I am happier. When my kids have good behavior I am happier. When I have something to look forward to, I am happier.
I just don’t see that.
My body is really sore today, my heart is sore and it’s Drew’s last day home for the summer. I looked at myself and thought I need to make the decision to be happy. I don’t mean to say that I plan to be happy every day for the rest of my life… but it is to say that I will find some areas in my life that are bright spots. I know that God is my brightest spot, and with his help I can find other bright spots.
I’m just wondering how you make the decision to be happy… especially when life doesn’t seem to be going your way? And no, that book has nothing to do with this post. I’d just like to be more happy.
