Statements For Being Rational

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!
