I bought this for myself a few years ago, when I was particularly down in the dumps about circumstances that were entirely out of my control.
Upon discovering it, I realized that no matter what what was going on, happiness was a choice.
Sure I could take time to lament and mourn my very real losses; but even those that were suffering and gone before me would never have wanted me to continue living in that state of loss.
It was my job to live the life they could not.
I realized that it was my job to CHOOSE happiness.
In the face of adversity, to overcome and make the best of what may be.
In the prospect of opportunity, to claim.
To own this life they could not.
It is ours to behold.
If only we could just be happy today.
