I choose to be happy every day, not because of what is going on on my life, but in spite of it. If I am happy only when circumstances point that way, being happy is no longer in my own hands. I prefer to take control of my life and be happy all the time. I am not necessarily happy about what is going on, but I can find something to be happy about almost all the time. And when I can’t, I look to my tribe to remind me that I am a good person, and that is enough to be happy about.
