DEAR DIARY: THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you handle it.” We can’t change our past, we can’t change people’s actions and we also can’t change what is bound to happen. What we CAN do is always react and handle every situation to the best of our ability. Every single day, hour, minute, and second of our lives, each and every one of us has the choice regarding what type of attitude we want to have in that second, minute, hour, or day. “The pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice.”
People often ask me how I deal with hate, negativity or rumors/speculation (whether it’s true or false). The answer is really quite simple. Again: “the pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice.” Saying that, I have the choice of whether I choose to be positive or negative about these situations. At this point in my life, there are slim to 0 things that anyone could ever say or make up about me that could affect me. Why? Because I am fully content with the wise decisions I have made, therefore it is extremely easy for me to be positive and never feel the need to act “petty” or “clap-back”……just simply ignore it all because these negative things hold no significance in my life.
When you are able to (1) maintain a clear conscience by living an honest life and doing right by people (2) think rationally/use discernment so you are able make wise decisions to live a life of no regrets and (3) always choose to have a positive outlook no matter what is thrown at you in life, is when you will live a happy, stress-free and gratifying life!
In conclusion, the longer you live..the more you will realize how much yourattitude impacts your life. It is said that your attitude is far more important than your education, your image/appearance, your actions, your skills, your money or your successes. So if you want to truly live a happy life, the most important thing you need to have is a great, positive attitude..no matter what hand you are dealt!
