When making any decision always ask yourself, “will it bring me happiness?” Even if it means sacrificing some pleasure. Pleasure in generally only short term, happiness is long term.
“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.” Carl Jung

“We make our lives so heavy, we have these incredibly heady burdens we carry like rocks in a bag, we don’t realise the lightness of just letting it go. It’s not an external change, it’s an internal change, it’s a change from holding on very tightly to holding on very lightly.”
We tend to select one or two small problems in our life, emphasise them, and blow them out of proportion. Then we think, “I can’t be happy” and this thought itself prevents us from enjoying our life and making it meaningful.
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” Buddha
“We can trudge through mental quicksand, feeling bad and wishing we didn’t; or we can realise that stewing isn’t even slightly productive, and then consciously choose to let go and be free.” Lori Deschene
You don’t have to buy from anyone, work at any job or participate in any given relationship. No matter how restrictive things may seem you and you alone can choose. Choice is the only true freedom we have in life and the most important choice is who we will be today.
What you do today is important, because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. Make a point to respect your time because it is the only thing given for free.
Life is not always going to be rainbows and blue skies all the time, but we can be strong enough and smart enough to stop letting the occasional shower affect the entire forecast of our lives.
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”- Wayne Dyer

“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“We need to introduce a little balance into your life. Part of this balance means not missing out on some of the marvels of life around you, the fun, some excitement, or other challenges in life.” – Catherine Pulsifer
