Better Hopes for Tomorrow

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: 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

My friend from Texas came here to visit his sister.  On New Year’s Eve, another close friend invited all of us to their house for lunch.  My parents and I had a great time.  During the night though, I didn’t have any friends to hang out with; everyone had their own plans.  I decided to go home after staying with my parents for a while.

Sitting at home, I started to feel lonely.  I thought of people spending time with their loved ones– in particular, my nephew and niece, who were most likely hanging out with my sister’s friends.  They were planning on heading out to a Packer game the next morning.  I started feeling sad about not having a girlfriend– for yet another year– as the clock ticked closer to midnight.

In that moment, I was once again haunted by the thought that perhaps there really was no place for me in this world.  But, I reminded myself that I have a lot of good things going on in my life.  Truthfully, I’ve made a lot of progress since last year.  I have a loving family; I’ve made new friends from work and a church group I recently joined; and more people have joined DeafandHoH.com and our weekly Open Chat Night.  So, I am not alone in this world.  I just have to keep in mind that no matter what situation arises in my life, I have the power to make myself happy.  It’s all up to me.  So, I’m going to just enjoy today and hope for tomorrow.

    “I just have to keep in mind that no matter what situation arises in my life, I have the power to make myself happy.” Very truthful. Beautiful Post!
