I understood that I had traveled down a road full of despair, and along the way, I met other unhappy people. We all were miserable about our life. Our experiences taught me that I could experience happiness if I refuse the negative and choose to be happy. I must myself to be happy. It will not be easy, and I will struggle with this every day. I know I will have off and on success towards being happy.
Regardless of what I experienced, I am happy because the Lord woke me up to this morning. I have a job, a dependable car, money, my children, family, and I are all healthy, and I have a roof over my head. I thanked the Lord for the unknown miracles that he performed throughout my life. I decide to be happy in all things. No one can make me happy. I chose to be happy. I must look within myself, see the greatness of God in all things, and be a part of his work through my happy moments and sad moments.
