An 90 year old lady had lost her husband and now had to move to nursing home. So the day she had to move to nursing home in morning she woke up early got dressed properly with perfectly applied makeup.
She was ready to move to nursing home. Cab was called to take her to nursing home. She got into cab and reached nursing home.
After reaching nursing home she was asked to wait in the nursing home lobby. She waited patiently for many hours. She smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.
As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator nurse gave her a brief visual description of her room including colors of sheets on window.
After hearing just description she replied with enthusiasm, “I love it.”
Nurse was surprised to hear her reply and responded, “But you haven’t even seen your room yet… Just wait until you see your room.”
She replied, “That doesn’t have anything to do with it. Happiness is something that you decide. It doesn’t depend on how my room look or i will like my room or not. It depends on how my mind is arranged..
I already decided to love it. It’s decision i made when i wake up in morning.
I had choice either i can spend day counting problem i have to face because of body parts with no longer works or i can get out of bed and be thankful for one that do.
As long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away.. Just for this time in my life.”
Each day is a Gift. We should Learn to Live Happy. Happiness comes from Inner self and we are one who Decides to be Happy or not.
