Promise of a new Day

One is happy as the result of one’s own efforts.  —George Sand—

Our attitude about our circumstances or our hopes determines the tenor of a moment, eventually of the whole day. No attitude, no feeling or emotion, is foisted upon us. We have always made the choice. Perhaps our passivity regarding choices has all to often eased us into situations detrimental to our emotional health. Nevertheless, responsibility for the pain that accompanies poor choice is always our own. Conversely, the joy that is ushered in by certain other choices is also our responsibility. Personal power commands our lives, and the fruits are as bountiful as our choices, selectively made. We will be as happy as our choices make us, and as we decide to be.  Today is mine, and whatever I make of it is by personal choice.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
