Look for the sunshine by Nancye Sims

Life can make choices for us.
Sometimes these choices
Seem unfair
And make us unhappy if we let them.

But in the end we control our own destiny

Because we can decide how we are going to allow

People or events to affect us.

So much of our happiness, and unhappiness,

Lies within the choices we make.

We can accept that life isn’t the way we want it to be,

Or we can work to change it so it will be.

We can walk through the shadows,

Or we can choose to smile

And to seek out the sunlight.

We can create grand dreams

That never leave the ground,

Or we can be builders of dreams that that touch the sky.

We can look at only

The negative aspects of ourselves,

Or we can lift ourselves up

By being our own best friend.

We can live in the past

Or dream about the future,

Or we can live for today.

We can give up when the road becomes difficult,

Or we can keep on going

Until the view is much better.

The choices in life are endless,

And so is the potential for happiness…….
