I loved this quote from Joel Osteen. So often we let our happiness depend on our reaction to the others. If thy do something awful, unkind or are just plain thoughtless, we let that drag our mood down.
Now that I'm in the second half of my life, I don't want to waste time being sad or bitter. I want to choose happiness as my first response to everything. I want to learn to let the actions of others wash over me and not drag me down with them.
Life is indeed short and I plan on choosing happiness as often as possible!
