Learning To Be Happy

I just re-read something I found a bit ago. It goes something like this, “Every Day you must unlearn the ways that hold you back. You must rid yourself of negativity, so you can learn to fly.”
How many of us without thinking allow the negative into our lives, allow things that may not ever take place worry us to the point we cannot sleep. What we are doing is cheating ourselves and others of a quality of life. We spend so much time thinking about the negative in our life we fail to see the ways we can fly.
What would have happened if Christ had lived his life in a negative manner? How many people would he have reached? He knew his future; he knew his fate. We on the other hand only know that some day we will know longer be on this earth.
Do we want to be remembered for the fact that we found nothing to be positive about? Do we want to be remembered for our negative attitude about ourselves and others? Or do we want to fly? Do we want to influence others to shine as they see our light?
I for one choose to be positive no matter what happens in my life. I choose to believe that all things have a purpose and how I perceive that purpose determines my perspective on my life.
Negative things, people or happenstance have no room in our ability to fly. They act as an anchor to hold us down. While we may not be able to change the happenstance, people or things we can choose to not be negative, we can choose to fly.
I choose to FLY!!!!!! Who wants to fly with me?
