What will you choose?

One of my brood seems to be struggling a little at the moment. We have been talking about grit and choices.  Sometimes I wonder if there is much going in as he listens and sometimes I feel a little frustrated as it all comes down to choices he is making.

While doing some reading tonight I came across a really interesting website I had not seen before. http://www.actionforhappiness.org/

Below is a quote that encouraged me to keep talking with the gorgeous boy and reminded me that the choices we make really do make a difference!

Our happiness is not set in stone

Although our genes influence about 50% of the variation in our personal happiness, our circumstances (like income and environment) affect only about 10%.

As much as 40% is accounted for by our daily activities and the conscious choices we make. So the good news is that our actions really can make a difference.
