I still, and always will maintain that most things are in your own hands. Especially happiness. You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be miserable. No matter how awful things are, you have the choice to see the light and make do with what you have. And no matter how amazing things are, you have the choice to feel miserable and ruin the awesomeness you have.
It’s such a fine line, but such an easy choice if you know exactly how to make it. But it’s acquiring that knowledge that is the hardest part. It’s an art. It’s a piece of pretty art, so difficult to paint, and even harder to acquire. A piece of beauty lingering just out of reach, most of the time.
