Even If You’re Not Feeling Bubbly

One needn’t be cheerful in order to adopt a mature and self-determined stance in the face of creative challenges.

Succeeding isn’t always accompanied by smiling. And there’s much more to the creation of a flourishing life than the fleeting, fluctuating experience of having fun.

Sometimes we feel enthusiastic. Sometimes we don’t.

Thích Nhất Hạnh wrote, “Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky.”

Unfortunately, we can’t always choose our feelings. Fortunately, freedom isn’t a feeling.

The power to develop and demonstrate mastery over our lives can be exercised in any mood.

Autonomy is a choice, not an emotion.

Even when we’re not feeling bubbly, we still get to define who are; we still get to decide who we’ll become.
