“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; I have also learned from experience that the greater the part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances” – Martha Washington
Dispositions and circumstances. This seems to be a recurring theme throughout all of the “positive propaganda” I have read.
Our disposition and attitude determine our happiness, not our circumstances.
I think it is a recurring theme because it is something most of us struggle with. We struggle with the balance between facing the reality of our situation and whining and complaining about it.
And that is why I think we all need reminders. We have the opportunity every day to put on a positive disposition no matter the circumstances.
Let’s take advantage of that opportunity today.
Make it a great day.
