Damn right. The other day Frankie decided to watch his usual Gold Rush shows in bed (I would rather sew my eye lids shut) so I went out to the living room, plopped on the couch and switched on the tube. Now typically I change the channel straight to Bravo but for some crazy reason I didn’t..I didn’t even touch the remote. Pretty sure someone was trying to tell me something as I was mesmerized by the schpeal this church man was preaching. I do not consider myself very religious instead I am much more spiritual but for some reason I sat there and watched this guy for about 20 minutes.
He started off by saying “Don’t ever let someone take your happy away from you!” in his crazy preachy voice. That quote right there has stuck with me for days. He had some amazingly good points. There are so many times we get angry and let other people affect our happiness but that’s not fair to us, no one deserves the right to take away our happy, our joy. That is ours to keep. In this big crazy world we do not have control over other peoples actions. Very seldom can we stop negative occurrences like that super impatient driver cutting you off. What we can do is control how we react to it. Everyone is fighting their own battles out there and you might be too. Heck, I know I have been thru my fair share of some tough times but the best thing we can do is savor our happiness and not let it go.
Hope that wasn’t too deep for you all but I wanted to share this new mantra I have been using daily. It has worked so far and I hope it’ll help you! xo
