Words to Live By

Choose happy and embrace the weird.

-A.H.

It seems like we are always surrounded by bad news and tragedy. Stories of trouble and woe. Stories of people not getting along. Stories of people disrespecting other beliefs, religions, genders, races.

It’s incredibly easy to get sucked into this world of drama, negativity, and divisiveness. I like to think that this little sentence reminds us that getting sucked in is a choice.

We can choose to judge someone who is “different than us”… or we can “embrace the weird”.

We can choose to be offended by a comment made by a cranky teacher….or we can “choose happy” by maybe imagining that they are cranky because their child is sick, or they’ve suffered a loss.

We might not be able to control all that happens to us, but we can do our best to choose how we let it affect us and the view that we have of the world around us.

We have written about choosing happy before, but this little sentence made us think about it again. These are truly words to live by, and we thank the lovely person who shared them with us this week!
