Make Up Your Mind

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."

-Abraham Lincoln

It's amazing and just goes to show that even back in the day, the people who had the right attitude on life are the ones who went far. The president for example, or famous inventors, explorers, and musicians. It has always been the people in life with the joyous, happy attitude who go the distance.

It is us who decides where we go, what we do, what we say, even down to what we think. And it is our thoughts that affect our possibilities. Our thoughts can hinder us, or bring us up... we make the decision. We can make up our minds to strive toward positive things and positive thoughts. We can choose to avoid negative images or circumstances. Most of all we can be a beacon of light for others around us. Live by example and show others how positive thinking really affects your life. Share your story with others, and maybe soon the rest of the world will catch on.

Our lives make a difference. Our thoughts make a difference. Choose your state of mind. Choose what you want in life. We are as happy as we choose to be!
