This is a hard one I have to admit, and I struggle with it all the time. In my heart though, I realize it’s right. When you boil it right down to the facts, no one can make you unhappy without your consent. Shocker I know, and most of you will probably argue otherwise. True that things happen to us that brings us down or upset us. If you are honest with yourself (which isn’t always easy) every situation, no matter the source or outcome, can never hurt you. Why? When something “bad” happens what do you think would happen if you simply said, so be it, and didn’t let it get to you? Life is a choice. Happiness is a choice. It may not be easy to choose, but it is still a choice. Because in the end, you are the only one who can make your life what you want it. You are the only one who can make yourself happy. No one else can do it for you. Therefore, no one else can ever take those things away from you unless you let them.

That can include but is not limited to, cooking, art, digital design, jewellery making, photography, gardening, nature, animals and whatever else strikes my fancy. I’m an optimistic (occasionally) perfectionist (constantly), who can be very sarcastic (incessantly), but all in good humour. :)
