I think you have to choose to be happy everyday.. I am part Cherokee and this battle reminds me of a story I once heard about the great battle inside us..
"An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
So choose happiness. Feed those qualities and your passions that bring you joy and peace :) Hope that helped.
I wish !! I sure do love me some N’awlins and their folk :)
Absolutely ! I love Shane! Such a fun video
