Choose to be happy

I choose to be happy. I know there is a lot going on in this world that I do not like or approve of; I know there are people who are scared and suffering in this world. I am not in denial about these things; I do what is within my power to make the world a better place. And I know that me being miserable will not help anything that is going on. So I choose to count my blessings and be happy.
