selfmadeThis is one of the barest truths I’ve read in some time and although I have read it before, it never fails to remind me, we decide how we progress. No one else, just us.

Life is what we make it, quite literally.

You can choose to be happy, or you can choose to be sad, and change begins with that decision.

You can start your day with the pain and sorrow you felt yesterday or you can make a conscious decision to do what you owe yourself the most, use that experience to move your life forwards towards brighter days.

You can hold onto that wonderful day you had yesterday, and end up struggling to match up, or you use that experience to find new ways to have such wonder and fulfilment in your days.

Start with the basics; be the reason someone smiles today. It may only seem a small contribution to you, but it may be huge for them.

There are those who look up at a blue sky with a single grey cloud and notice the clear, crisp colour and hope for a clear day, and those who see only the grey cloud and expect rain.

“Once you realise that all comes from within, that the world in which you live is not projected onto you, but by you,
your fear comes to an end” – Nisargadatta Maharah
