Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
Life is precious . . . it is short . . .
every second counts and ticks down the ones that are left.
When you realize how important every moment truly is, the quote from Groucho Marx makes so much sense.
Sometimes it takes a bumpy road to get to that place of understanding.
I'm grateful for all the bumpy roads I have faced in my life, although many of those roads left me feeling scared like things would never be right in my life again. But they were . . . it is what was meant to be.
Embrace the hardships of life, they can make us appreciate
everything good that follows.
