Life is always better when you have HOPE.
Happiness is a choice daily. We all have ups and downs, but where you choose to reside is your decision. I urge you to think about life and acknowledge that there are ups and downs, but the place to spend most of your time should be happy. I urge you to make that choice. You can decide otherwise and we all know people who tend to look at the negative and appivapp pull others down, but please don’t be one of them. Choose to be a builder of people and community and happiness will become a habit.
Opportunities to make a difference, in something or someone’s life, are abundant. If you try to help someone or do one small thing, daily or weekly, the world will be a better place. I encourage you to recognize and act on opportunities that fit your personality. It doesn’t have to be huge. It can be small and the most basic shift in thought or actions. You can take an opportunity at home, in your community, at work or globally. It all depends what type of opportunity you are looking for. The most important part is that it is something that you enjoy and would be comfortable doing.
Perception becomes reality. I cannot remember who said this but it is common knowledge now about the statement on whether you believe you can or can’t, you are right. I recommend that you make positive perceptions your possibility. There are risks involved when you step out and try something different and risks can have rewards. If you aren’t sure, then try something small and safe to start. This will allow you to take small steps as you move forward in your journey.
Exist or live is also a choice. We only have one journey and we all make decisions along the way. Doing nothing is a decision too. Therefore I call you to do more than exist. I suggest that you choose to live. If you choose to live, I believe that you will notice an immediate change in yourself and that others will notice a change in you too. The choice to do more is a risky one because every time you do something there are opportunities to make mistakes. The only way to not make mistakes is to do nothing, but what kind of life would that be?
The world is a wonderful place full of love and adventure. I have HOPE you have everything you need to live a fulfilling life. If this brief summary helps even one person, it has been worthwhile, I hope.
