Good words

Saw this on my friend’s Facebook page yesterday.  Very timely for several of us based on the comments and likes on her page…

“Happiness does not come from a job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs. Many people today resent the suggestion that they’re in charge of the way the feel. But trust me, Parker. Those people are mistaken. That was a big lesson from Dirty Jobs, and I learned it several hundred times before it stuck. What you do, who you’re with, and how you feel about the world around you, is completely up to you.” ~Mike Rowe, Dirty Jobs

    This is true, but sometimes tough to remember. Sure we are in charge of the way we feel, but we’re not always in charge of our brain releasing hormones that cause instant emotions, especially negative ones. Sometimes it takes a while to get them under control.
