From the moment we open our eyes
We choose what to perceive
Resplendent beauty all around
Or the ugly and the negative.
It’s how you view the world
That determines what you see
Not the cloud but the silver lining.
Not the challenge but the opportunity.
It’s up to you to decide
How to regard your circumstance
To be happy in life is a matter of choice
Not just a matter of chance.
L. S. Dryden
