“A man is happy so long as
he chooses to be happy.”
I agree with Alexander! Life has its ups and downs. Sometimes we soar high and sometimes we are in a deep pit. If we are in a pit just wallowing there and don’t do what we can to climb up and out we will remain miserable. I know I spend time in the pit on occasion. One thing I know for sure is that I really don’t like being there. And I know that it takes hard work to get back on firm ground, often really hard work.
The thing about hard work is that it develops muscle and agility and fortitude. That’s good because we all have problems and troubles. It takes courage and strength to face those things and and to not allow them to be the deciding factor of our attitude and how we live our lives.
Maybe the best thing that we get from the hard work
is that we can soar even higher!
