Our greatest happiness does depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us ,but is always the result of a good conscience good health occupation and freedom in all just pursuits .
Opportunities abound each day of our lives for respectful thoughtful actions toward others. Its Our within our power to apply serious effort to any task securing our attention. Being concerned with our physical health and emotional well-being is also a choice. And we discover the level of happiness we attain in this life is in proportion to the considerate attention we give to others, to our personal needs, and to the activities occupying us.
The blessings we receive in this life are measurable by those we bestow upon the lives of those with whom were traveling. There really are no surprises in store for us. We each must assume responsibility for our own happiness and good fortune and there’s no time like the present for opening our minds to this reality. We sit at the controls today, and our perspective on the situations we experience will
make them pleasant productive or problematic.
The choice is my own. I`ll find happiness and good will if I foster it.
Maturity is the capacity to withstand ego-destroying experiences and not lose one `s perspective in the ego-building experiences.
Our emotional health is proportionate to our willingness to take personal responsibility for thoughtful responses to the myriad circumstances
in our lives. We are not powerless over our attitudes or over behaviors, even though we are generally powerless over the events themselves. The most troubling of times need not diminish us unless we let them.
Likewise, the flavor of the most pleasurable situation retains its long life in proportion to our willingness to assimilate the experience gradually, letting is enrich us but not overwhelm us. Overreaction to any event casts a spell over us, inhibiting our ability to perceive accurately the moments hours perhaps even days of experiences that follow.
Finding the balance between overly emotional reactions to people and circumstances and disinterested passivity takes effort and a commitment to emotional health. And that balance is the real key to experiencing a life that’s joyful.
No event need throw me today. And yet every situation offers me a chance to practice healthy living.
wait of someone else, or to expect someone else to make my life
richer, or fuller, or more satisfying, puts me in a constant state of
tempting it is to make another person responsible for our happiness,
and how absurd. To give such power to others means we`re at their
mercy; it does not mean we`re happy. Where are, accepting full
responsibility for our own acts and feelings does give us the power
to be happy as we choose, as often as we choose.
maturity precludes our blaming or praising another for our personal
well- being. There is reason to be exhilarated that we are blessed
with as much control as we choose to have over our own growth,
happiness and commitment to change. WE`re in another`s control only
by choice- never by necessity. And when we`ve given our precious poer
away, we`re reduced to waiting for someone else`s nod of approval,
waiting for their invitation to live.
time is now to decide for myself who I am, where I`m going and why!
The time is now!
