Life is full of challenges, it’s how you respond to them that makes a difference to your life.

Throughout our lives, we are challenged with choices and these include joy and sadness. The choice that lasts is not always what we understand to be joyous, for what we initially take to be joy can end in bitterness and even hatred.


Strange as it might seem, we do sometimes manage to find hate or love even in what we believe to be love as if there were a deficit of hate in the course of the daily struggle for existence.

Perhaps we can't always choose joy when our reflex is to be sad. But we can at least choose not to be sad; we can try to be forgiving, to be sympathetic and to be motivational for others.

We may not have the limelight on us and popularity but perhaps, when our time is up, we can look back and say to ourselves:

`I could choose between negativity and great motivation. I chose not to be sad.'


Life is too short to be sad all the time, so laugh every day, smile when you want to cry, love the ones that care for you, forget the ones that don't.

Hang out with friends whenever possible, regret nothing because at one time it was everything you wanted, never hate someone cause they will hate you back, and just live life to the fullest because you only get one life.
