Each day a new Beginning

Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them? 

—Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy—
We choose the lives we lead. We choose sadness or happiness; success or failure; dread or excited anticipation. Whether or not we are conscious of our choices, we are making them every moment. Accepting full responsibility

for our actions is one of the requirements of maturity. Not always the easiest thing to do, but necessary to our

further development. An unexpected benefit of accepting our responsibility is that it heightens our awareness of personal power. Our well being is within our power. Happiness is within our power.

Our attitude about any condition, present or future, is within our power, if we take it. Life is “doing unto us” only

what we allow. And it will favor us with whatever we choose. If we look for excitement, we’ll find it.

We can search out the positive in any experience. All situations present seeds of new understanding, if we are open to them. Our responses to the events around us determine whatever meaning life offers.

We are in control of our outlook. And our outlook decides our future.
This day is mine, fully, to delight in–or to dread. The decision is always mine.
