How is it that some people that seem to “have it all “ aren’t happy while others have “next to nothing” exude joy? Happiness is a decision. Viktor talks about this in his book “Man’s Search For Meaning”. It was his study of man’s behaviour after going through some of the most terrible circumstances. The holocaust.
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. ~Viktor Frankl
Next time that you are feeling down, realize that you are one decision away from happiness. You are unhappy because you feel like things should be a certain way. What if you didn’t have that judgement? What if you recognize something as neither good or bad. It just is. If you are able to do that you’ll never have to worry about happiness again.
