Daily Motivator for October 18th – Choose to feel

Choose to feel

When you don’t feel like smiling, that’s when a smile will absolutely do the  most good. When you don’t feel like laughter, that’s when a laugh can completely  change your whole outlook.

You do not have to live at the mercy of your feelings. You can choose to be  the master of those feelings and the master of your actions.

It doesn’t matter whether it is easy or hard, reasonable or unreasonable to  choose the way you act and feel. You can do it anyway.

Don’t use your feelings as an easy excuse to do the wrong thing. Use them as  a well-informed guide for doing what is good and right.

Pay attention to your feelings, learn from them, experience, enjoy and  appreciate them. But don’t let them enslave you.

Go ahead, feel life intensely. And make the choice to be in control and to  live with intelligent, positively focused purpose.

— Ralph Marston
