CHOOSE JOY

There are no laws against thinking what we want to think. We're free to think and believe as we choose.

Why, then, do people sometimes choose to be angry? Or depressed? Or discouraged? If it really is up to us, why not decide to be always happy and confident? Because we believe that it's life's events—either good or bad—that steer our thoughts and feelings. Things go well, and we say, "That makes me happy." Things turn sour or someone offends us, and our first impulse may be, "That makes me so mad!" Or sad. Or discouraged.
