You know how sometimes you hardly get out of the bed in the morning and you can’t wait to do everything you have scheduled for that day and to return back home? You know how sometimes you are so unsatisfied with absolutely everything and you desperately want some things in your life to change? You know how sometimes you are so unhappy and you have a feeling that your life is falling apart?

“You should look in the mirror every morning and ask yourself if You want to do exactly what You are supposed to do. If you are repeating NO as an answer few days in the road sometimes is not ok and it is time for You to change it” said Steve Jobs in his speech on famous Stanford University. And you know what, I think he was right.

Every day I have a possibility to meet people who are so unhappy with some little things that happened in their life that they completely ruin their day and day of people around them. Every day I have a possibility to meet people who can’t stop complaining about their faculty or work, but they do nothing about it. Every day I have a possibility to meet people who are so negative about everything that you end conversations with them completely exhausted. Every day I have a possibility to meet people who are able to turn the most positive things in their lives into the reason more to keep complaining.

On the other hand, every day I have a possibility to meet people who unfortunately went through the terrible life situations but are still the most positive people I know. Every day I have a possibility to meet people who weren’t treated good by life but are trying to get the best they can out of life. Every day I have a possibility to meet people who lost the most important things in life but are still fighting for themselves and people they care about. Every day I have a possibility to meet people who are able to perceive the most negative things in their lives as the constituent part of life and to get out of those kinds of situations as stronger and better people.

I think that every one of us has right to feel bad every once in a while. I think that every one of us has right to cry about some stupid thing every once in a while. I think that every one of us has right to feel sorry about themselves every once in a while.  After all, we are all humans. But, I also think that every one of us chooses what he wants to do with his life. I think that every one of us chooses if he is going to be grateful for everything he has or unhappy because he always needs more. I think that every one of us chooses if he is going to be happy because of people who surround him or regret about losing people who decided to leave him. I think that every one of us chooses if he is going to make some changes about his life or he is going to complain daily about them.

Because, in the end, we are the ones who decide. If we want to make changes. If we want to change. If we want to make others happy. If we want to be happy.
