“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up, I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. “
I CAN CHOOSE? Why has nobody told me that???!!!
So I get up and proclaim my happiness? Is it me deciding, what will happen that day? So many bad things can happen. My boss had that “special face” yesterday. Not good news…
So where shall this happiness come from, then? From within me? Hey, I’m not Gandhi or the Dalai Lama. It’s not there. It seldom is.
But what if I relax a bit. Just for that moment. Yes, there is a bit happiness in it. It feels better as the days before. Why haven’t I started this earlier?
Yes, I want to feel life. So desperately. My life feels so dull, so numb, so senseless. But it’s in my hands. Only I can stop this robotic behavior.
And for the experiment, I decide: Yes, I want it!
