People who are grumpy must make themselves so miserable, as well as those around them.
Yesterday, on my way home from a visit to my brother, I stopped at an orange traffic light. The man behind me sat on his horn and threw his arms up in the air – he obviously intended to have run the red light.
I could observe him in my rear-vision mirror and his face was so grumpy – it looked habitual, not just a momentary annoyance, and I felt sorry for him and the unhappy life he must lead.

I believe we all have a choice in how we lead our lives. We can be miserable and grumpy or we can choose to be happy and mindful of the good things in our life.
Happiness does not depend on what we have, or what activities we participate in, or how much money is sitting in our bank. Happiness is a choice we make that comes from within ourselves, whatever our situation is.
