It’s a decision

I seldom appreciate fowarded email. I only read those from my sister or from certified smart-asses who would gag at the thought of sending If-you’re-my-friend-send-this-back-to-me messages.
Well, while clearing my Inbox of clutter, I saw a forward (so it’s a noun now?) which was about some 97-year old fart in a nursing home who apparently uttered some brilliant words of wisdom. (And you would think the dude’s senile, living off a tube.)
Anyhow, what he purportedly said caught my attention. It is exactly how I view happiness (not so obvious, is it?). Exactly how I want to explain to other people that my happiness is a decision.
Well, I’m running out of time coz my mom’s waiting for me downstairs, so here goes…
"Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged … it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do."

Okay, ‘nuf said. Gotta run.

    These are simply but ramblings of one woman struggling to retain as much youth in a fast-aging world. With her deteriorating senses and memory, this is her way holding on to as much as she can remember.

    The tone of the blog will most-likely change once she shifts to another phase in life. As of the moment, she claims to be at peace while in hibernation.
