Remember….you can be right or you can be HAPPY!

” Remember happiness doesn’t depend on who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think” ~Dale Carnegie

If you know me then you know I am fond of saying “you can be right or you can be happy!”  I know it can be hard to make a good choice when our EGO is in control! 

When we are in the midst of great emotion such as anger, jealousy, pride etc….. We get so caught up in the pain and anger, we experience these emotions so passionately, that it’s hard to remember we still have a choice! We forget that the one thing we always have control over is how we react to a situation, our attitude!   It is hard to stop and choose to be happy when we are so hurt or angry! And sometimes we won’t be successful…for the moment!  But, GOD willing, there will be another moment!  YOU WILL WIN!  I will win! If we want to!

I think we can’t be reminded often enough that it is our choice!  Do you want to be right or be happy!?

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl
