Chapter 11, Page 15, Book 17

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Groucho Marx

Today I’m thankful I have choices to make

Life is the sum of all your choices. 

Albert Camus
Each new day can bring with it a myriad of issues and problems. And each one requires us to make a choice. 

The choices we make determine who we are.  And where we are is a direct result of the choices we have made up to this point in our life. At the time, some choices might have seemed inconsequential, while others were major life choices. But in the end, all of these choices form together to create the person you are today and the life you live. 

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice. 

Wayne Dyer

We are what we choose. The great thing about life though is that since life is full of choices, we can choose to change things.

You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't let someone else make yours.

Colin Powell

We cannot change our circumstances but we can choose how we react to them.

I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it's only a choice of attitude.

Judith M. Knowlton

It is always our choice how we react to something or how we chose to live our days. Living them gratefully and kindly are great choices to make!

After a week's worth of UNEXPECTED issues/challenges, I sure needed to read this! Every little phrase, a truism. They help.


we can change our circumstances. "You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't let someone else make yours."
