I deliberately focus on that which is beautiful and good.
I focus externally on things outside myself that keep me rational and healthy.
I refuse to gossip and demean myself by uttering negative words or beliefs.
I refuse to be involved in quarreling, confusion and discord.
Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it.
I choose to learn from it.
I can complain because I have to go to school, or I can eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new bits of knowledge.
I can mourn my lack of friends, or I can embark upon a quest (even if it is slowly at first) to discover new relationships.
I can cry because roses have thorns, or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice.
You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood.
The bottom line: It's your choice how you live life.
Each morning wake up and say to yourself:
"I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood and focus on the positive aspects of life.
What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
