choose happy.

today i read {this} article by the {tattooed Mormon}, and if i hadn't already been laying down to read it probably would have literally stopped me in my high heeled tracks.
not simply because of the journey, but because of the message.
we choose the outcome of each and every day we have on this earth.
if you want to be sad.
if you want to be offended.
if you want to sit and count everything that went wrong...
go right ahead. 
but don't you dare pull others into that mood with you.
because at the end of the day it really isn't the fault of the person or the situation you blame for "putting" you there.
it's your own fault for choosing to take it the way you did.
and then for allowing the grump to stick.

I had to make a decision. And it’s a decision I have to make every day. One you have to make every day. Several times a day. And what that is, to choose to get mad. Choose to get offended. Bothered. Confused. Or….not.
The decision to keep going. The decision to be happy and follow the spirit & counsel given….or not. Choose to have faith. Choose to trust. Or not.

if only we all chose to be a little less ruffled, 
and a little more bright.
and by we, i mean me.
