We live in the age of choice, no?
Democracy tells us so. Ads on TV tell us so. Dating apps tell us so.
So in that case, my choice is clear:
We so often choose misery and suffering in the face of an ordeal. And yes life's tough and includes many unforeseen hardships. But all we can really do in the face of those hardship is... deal with them.
So I say - if we got to deal, let's choose to deal with joy.
Being upset and feeling like the world's against ya is EASY. The greatness is in choosing joy. Work on that greatness. Choose JOY.
