“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” Groucho Marx
Known as a master of quick wit and considered one of the best comedians of the modern era. He had rapid-fire, impromptu delivery of innuendo-laden patter.
Having seen some re-runs of his films through the years I think back to his quote above. He was smart enough to realize he had the power to make himself happy or unhappy. What a blessing it would be if all humans everywhere realized that bit of intelligent information. People wouldn’t blame others for their unhappiness they would blame themselves. Then maybe they would do something about their unhappiness. Maybe, just maybe, they would change it.
Next time you find yourself unhappy. Remember you have he power to change that. You have the power to make yourself happy.
