Our choice

Well, while I was in the shower, (the place where I do my best thinking and reflecting), I got to think about the things that happen in my life.

I think while we are in any situation, good or bad, it seems like they are out of our hands and we are left helpless to be lead by some sort of force.

If you let it, you will be led, but if you are not happy with where you are going, no one can be blamed because it was no one other than you who chose to follow.

I let myself be led, and I am happy. I do have bad days but I am still happy. If I stop being happy, I take an active role in my situation and change the direction of my life.

I've done it a few times and I have never regretted any of those decisions.

But that is the thing, anything I do is my choice whether I realise it or not, or admit to it or not.

I have the choice to be happy or not to be happy.

This reminds me of the "Synthesizing Happiness" TED lectures-- there were two of them online that basically explained that humans will create happiness as a means to survive.

--Whether it was being happy with choices, or just being happy in general.

I think many people would do well to learn to be happy like you have :D
