When we begin a search for happiness, there are two old sayings that can be very helpful. The first says that we will become what we think about. If we are dissatisfied and unhappy with our present life, it means that we need to begin thinking about the life we would like. However, the second old saying reminds us that we must either accept the responsibility of designing a life we want, or be willing to accept the often unhappy reality of living a life that someone else has designed for us. We can blame others for our present situation, or we can take responsibility for our present situation…..but we can’t do both. We must choose our path.
