10.4.2021 – have the power choose

have the power choose
happy unhappy today
I am going to be …

Based on a quote attributed to Groucho Marx.

I made the attribution in another post, 4.28.2020 – there are decades when, and that is good enough for me.

Yogi Berra claimed that he had a Mickey Mantle rookie card.

A baseball card worth $5.2 million today.

Mr. Berra said he had it home, somewhere,

He knew he had it.

He didn’t want to look for it as he knew he had it.

And if he looked and didn’t find it … well, who needed that.

Mr. Berra was content knowing he had the Mickey Mantle Rookie Card … somewhere.

I am content with knowing that Groucho Marx said “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.

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.“

Why use the Google and find out that maybe he did not.

Who needs that?

I am going to choose … to believe he did.

And I am going to choose to be happy.
