Happiness is a choice. Being pleasant is a choice.
How I feel inside, is mine to deal with. How I project to
others is my choice. I have days and times when I do
not feel just tickety-boo. But, I do not choose to dump
my feelings and situation on everyone’s plate.
I do find appropriate ways to share and process those things,
and thereby grow in my maturity through these events.
Life brings all kinds of opportunity to learn and grow and it is
not always in fun stuff.
Still, choose to be a student and ask ~ What CAN I learn?
What HAVE I learned? What will I do differently?
I ask God frequently when things are tough, “Please don’t waste
any of this suffering.” There is a cost to developing capable-ness and
cope-ability. Be willing to pay the price. It is so worth it. Go the
journey, and never give up knowing that you are ‘IN PROCESS’ that
there is a positive outcome for you ~ as life is worked through with God,
knowing that all things will turn out for good. It is our FAITH that puts
it in action.
