It’s how I arranged my mind.


What I did today just reading book The Greatest Miracle in the World I really love this book by Og Mandino, I keep on reading because I am excited about what happens next — then,
checking my friend’s blog, I mostly spend my weekend like this. Sometimes I am hanging out with my friends, but mostly what I love to do is reading books, watching movies, playing online games. Five days 8 hours a day working, sometimes I feel exhausted, but I been doing this for ten years the same routine.

My uncle was always convincing me to quit and stay at home helping the community, but I figured it out, what if I stop, how are my personal needs? If I build another family how I can raise them without having a job? That is the questions that always comes up in my mind, that what ifs. My uncle’s advice, do not figure it out trust God and He will provide. My, what if’s stopping me from staying on the other side.

I still, choosing my job. I feel encouraged and amazed at the people having the courage to leave in their comfort zone, and focusing on building their dreams. When I see their smiling faces, their happiness I feel guilty, guilty of restricting myself to do what I love to do. Then I made a choice; I am doing this both! My job then photography and writing so I started this blog. Thus, therefore, happiness is merely making choices. Not waiting for something to happen, I set up my mind then I prepare myself then I do it.

I have reminded myself about the story of an independent ninety-two-year-old lady who was moving into a nursing home. Since she was legally blind and her husband of seventy years had passed away, the move was her only option. She waited in the lobby of the facility for a long time before finally being told that her room was ready. As she was escorted down the corridor, her attendant described the place, down to the curtains hung on the windows.

“I love it.” the elderly lady enthused. “But you haven’t even seen the room yet. Just wait,” the attendant responded.

“That doesn’t have anything to do with it.” She replied. “Happiness is something you decide ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged; it’s how I arranged my mind.”

To God be the glory.
