Pain exists. Life can hurt. Like, a lot. Even when you’re good, you can get whacked. Without apology, Without explanation. Well, at least not right away. It’s not until later, that you finally learn…You always have a choice of emotional response to life. Happiness is not about what happens to you, but how you choose to respond to what happens. That’s why it’s called happiness not happenness—though it could be called hope-ness. You must always leave room for hope that all has happened for good cause. If you keep doing what you’ve always been doing, then you’ll keep getting what you’ve always been getting. You must courageously break the habit of your habits, or every year you will be doomed to live out: “Same #&%&!. Different Outfit.” The style of your clothes may change, but the style of your circumstances won’t.
