Notable Quotable

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.  Abraham Lincoln

I've always liked this quote.  I believe it is quite true.  There are those who are born with unimaginable and painful  illnesses and yet they make an effort to live each day to the fullest.  Giving of themselves when ever they are able.  They choose happiness.

There are those who have lived through hell, been down and out, been in war zones,  been beaten, raped, robbed, felt the death of loved ones. They make every effort to live each day to the fullest.  They choose happiness.

The sorrows and pains do not leave us.  They are simply the catalyst to the realization  that this is the one day we have.  This is the one life we get.  We can live in peace within ourselves once we have ascertained this fact.  And we can make every effort to look at the bright side.  We can choose happiness.
