I thought a lot about my post yesterday.

….the thought of making the decision to be happy and then changing things in your life accordingly. However, I also recognize that we sometimes have to make sacrifices in some areas to be happy in other parts of our life. There are a few things I’m doing in my life now that I don’t necessarily like. They require patience, time, effort, teeth gritting, and sometimes tears. So even though those things don’t make me happy ALL the time, I am choosing NOT to change this because these things make me happy in other areas of my life. I am making small sacrifices now knowing that these sacrifices are worth the small amount of unhappiness it may bring in the meantime.

I know I’m being vague here, but I hope you can understand that sometimes there are things we can’t post for specific personal, professional, relationships reasons.

But take the words of this post for this…you always have a choice. I’m CHOOSING not to change some things in my life, and I need to be happy with that choice. So live with a purpose.

So I'll raise a glass of my favorite Cheesecake Factory Mojito and say.....Cheers to life.

Great post, makes me rethink some of the things I dislike and think I want to change.
Good for you hon! it takes a wise person to see the bigger picture and the purpose of the bad things in life.
I hope you are having a lovely week.
