62.Happiness Is A Choice

“Being happy is something that each of us determines,It is not something that we find outside of yourself, it is within us and our choice.”

… Catherine Pulsifer

A story by Carry:

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised, and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.

Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.

After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provide a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window.

“Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room … just wait.”
“That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied.
“Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how it’s arranged, it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up.”
“I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.”
“Each day is a gift and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away, just for this time in my life.”

Learning:
Happiness is a choice and not a result
Life becomes happy, delightful, and enjoyable when you set free yourself from worries and hatred.
