Circumstances may (or not) be a choice or something we attract with our own thoughts/feelings/energies but the way we REACT to life is a CHOICE. Hard experiences can be lessons; darkness can lead to light; enemies can be our dearest masters; defeat can be the push we need to succeed; disappointment and sadness can teach us humanity and the value of great surprises and joy. Smiling is a choice – basically (and it´s so important!). It really* is. Melting the ice, waking up the night, remind us we were born to BE HAPPY. Here and now. Plus: “this too shall pass…” It will, everything will – the pleasant and the unpleasant. So you may as well grab the moment while you have it on your hands.
