I Am Determined to Be Happy
It has done nothing but rain sh*t in my life for the last 34 years. There have been almost no good times in my life, and as devastating as the last few weeks have been for me, I still remain determined to be happy. No matter how you look at life, it's the right thing to do. If you are an atheist or agnostic, this is all there is, might as well make the most of it. If you are religious, it's what God asks of us, to be strong and make the most of our lives. Standing up, taking life, the truth, hardship, disappointment--standing up and taking it all on the chin is the core of happiness. You can't let the problems of life get you down--life isn't what happens after all of the problems are over, life is the problems. Happiness is the ability to make the most of any experience, to learn from it and grow from it.
I have more than decided to be happy, I am determined to be happy. I will continue to stare life down and pull my self up above it all. No matter what happens, it doesn't matter if it rains sh*t every single day for the rest of my life, I WILL embrace and enjoy every minute of it. It's my life, I own my life. Even if things happen that are beyond my control, how I choose to react to them is up to me and I choose to open myself up to every experience, to never run, to never be afraid. I am absolutely determined to live, to love, to enjoy my life.
