Resolve to be happy

Something inspirational:

“To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy… is to set our own conditions to the events of each day.  To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.”

  1. I do agree with this philosophy. It’s not always easy to be positive in the face of the challenges that life has a habit of throwing our way, but the right attitude certainly helps us face those challenges.

    Unfortunately some circumstances will simply always be beyond our control, so all we can do is change the way we perceive them and a positive attitude will help us cope better.

    1. Yes you’re right it isn’t always easy, but as you say it helps if we are able to perceive our life with the right attitude through those challenges.

      It’s up to us to make the choice to be happy.

  2. I agree with both Brad and you. It isn’t always easy when we’re facing certain realities of life but that’s life.

    We can accept it, or we can fight it to no end but it will not change. We should try to be happy regardless. We woke up to another day. We should make the most of it. Being unhappy can cause problems that don’t have to be.

    I try to be happy everyday no matter what I’m facing. I think it’s having a positive attitude that helps.

    1. I agree with your comments too Lisa. We add to our problems when we’re not happy and they certainly don’t have to be. A positive attitude does help. Thanks Lisa.

  3. To wake each morning with the resolve to be happy is definitely a challenge, but it is possible if we condition our minds to be happy, regardless of the circumstances confronting us.

    I tend to start my day happy, but I don’t always end up that way.

    1. Thanks Tim. Yes I completely agree with you, but I do feel that we are responsible and have to make sure that our lives play out the way we want. That’s the key to anyone’s happiness.

      If someone or something is bothering us, we have to sort it or them out. If we don’t change our circumstances so that we have more peace in our lives and are happier, we will never BE happy.

      The choice is ours.
