“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” – Groucho Marx

annesweeny quote queenbeeingWe’re all human, and while we’d ideally be happy and sunshiny all the time, there are those moments (or days) when we find ourselves feeling…less than happy. At that point, we have two choices: continue to be miserable, or change our minds and decide to be happy.

I know it’s sometimes easier said than done, but I want to choose to be happy all the time. (Of course, I’m human, so I have the occasional wallow, just like the next girl!)

That said, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in that desire–the desire to be generally happy.

  1. Great post! Happiness is so important with anything that you are doing in life. Especially when you share your life with another. It makes it easier on them if you are happier more often 🙂
