Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be. (Abraham Lincoln)

It’s a simple statement that many might disagree with. When you are sad and unhappy, is it because you want to be? That may be hard to admit, but often it seems to be true. After all, we can “make up our minds” about a lot of things. Although we can’t always change our circumstances, we can choose to adopt a better attitude. Think happy to be happy.

When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other (Ecclesiastes 7:14).
