Some Saturday soul food: Groucho Marx                               Source: betheoneyouwant-tobe.tumblr.com via Jane on Pinterest Thanks so much for your gorgeous outpouring of support after my last post. You're such strong supporters of me. I'm a lucky girl to have you in my corner. For tonight's soul food, I've chosen the fabulous American comedian and film and television star,Groucho Marx (1890-1977).
Each morning when I open my eyes, I say to myself 'I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.  

I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.

I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.'
It's a ripper, don't you think? It's taken me most of my 42 years to work it out, I must say!
That Eureka-like moment of realising you actually have a degree of control over such matters is fabulous.
Being mindful and living in the moment are still very much works-in-progress for me ☺. But at least I'm on the case, I guess.
So what do you think? Are you with Groucho or against him? Why? I'm looking forward to hearing your illuminating thoughts, as always.
