Life is the colour you paint it

You can choose what type of day you have

You can complain because it's raining or be thankful that the plants are getting watered for free.

You can feel sad that money is scarse or be glad that your finances encourage you to plan and guide you away from waste.

You can grumble about your health or you can rejoice that you are alive.

You can lament over all that your parents didn't give you while you were growing up or you can feel grateful that they gave you life.

You can cry because roses have thorns or you can celebrate that thorns have roses.

You can mourn your lack of friends or you can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

You can whine because you have to go to work or you can shout for joy because you have a job to do.

You can complain because you have to go to school or eagerly open your mind and fill it with rich new knowledge.

You can murmur dejectedly because you have to do housework or you can feel honored because you have shelter for your mind, body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of you, waiting to be shaped. You are the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

Remember - Life is the colour you paint it
