Did you know you can actually talk yourself into being happy? I'd heard it said before, but my thoughts tended to be skeptical, i.e. "whatever," "sure you can," "yeah, right." That skepticism did stop me many times from trying it out, but finally I said, "what do I have to lose?" Except I didn't actually think that. I was feeling pretty terrible when I woke up that morning, but I said to myself, "I can go to work miserable and pull everyone else down or I can go in cheerfully and make work a better place." So as I drove to work I talked to God, told him what was bothering me, and that I wanted to minister to my coworkers. I sang to Him and had a nice time. I had decided to be happy; I had asked his help, and I was happy. It's an attitude choice, a matter of the heart. For even if there is nothing else to be thankful for (which is doubtful) there is always the sunrise. And every day it is spectacular, even if you can't see it. So when you are down, choose to be happy, and always find the sunrise.
no, I didn't take the picture. I don't remember where I found it, or I would give credit by linking to the original source
