Choose Happiness

To be Miserable: Deserving or inciting pity

Misery: A state or feeling of great distress or discomfort of the mind or body

“Misery Loves Company” as cliché as this saying is, I’m learning just how true it is.
I don’t understand why people feel the need to bring others down because their life is not what they would like it to be. In my opinion, most people living in the United States of American and maybe even the world can find something about their life that they wish they could change. Could you imagine what life would be like if literally every single person who was unhappy about something in their life tried to destroy and tear down the next person? Life itself would be horrible for every single person. Thankfully there are people who aren’t so miserable that they cause misery to everyone around them.
Where does misery come from? How does one become so miserable?
I believe it comes from not having enough self-gratification which then causes someone to be miserable. There are many things in my life that I wish I would have done different, I mean hey, I may possible be in a better place in my life. There are lots of people who have achieved so much more than me and so much further than me in the game, but does that mean I can’t play? No it does not.
Everyday God wakes me up I have a choice to either change what I didn’t do last year, last month, and even yesterday, or I can continue to be miserable and wallow in self-pity and be consumed by all the things I don’t have and compare my situation to someone else. The difference between where I am in the game in comparison to someone else is completely been contingent on how fast I decided to do SOMETHING about the things I don’t like about myself and about my life. It’s not always easy to change, but I believe it starts with a made up mind. To be miserable simply means to be unhappy, but to be unhappy doesn’t have to be permanent. With God’s help and ambition, which simply means you, have the Desire and determination to achieve success. You can find happiness even in the midst of defeat, hopelessness and confusion.

Schools Out!!

Hey you guys!!!!

Sorry I've been away. I kinda took a unplanned hiatus. I just finished my first semester of college. Just to be clear and so that I don't confuse anyone. I have been enrolled in college before,but at that time in my life I had nooo idea what I wanted to do, and as a result I had no passion for school, so I eventually dropped out. During my time off I researched and took a deeper look at what fit me more and when I started looking into Allied Health and found out about the Occupational Therapy Assistant program I couldn't be more excited because it fit my personality to a "T" unfortunately I couldn't immediately enroll because I had acquired dreadful student loans from other schools I had attended. God blessed and I was finally able to enroll this summer and I finished the semester with a 3.0 GPA PRAISE GOD!!!. I have about 3 more weeks off before I start again so my plan is to write while I'm off and keep you guys updated on what's going on with me. Thanks to everyone for continuing to follow my blog despite the slow post. I really really appreciate it
