Today I’m starting to record little one-minute shows for my new YouTube channel. If I can stumble across the right formula and then learn how to publicize it, I might end up with a job I enjoy that makes money. Stranger things have happened. I might prosper and enjoy life at the same time.
Of course, the ability to enjoy my life as it is right now has always existed, though I was unaware of the fact that happiness is a decision we make more than what happens to us. I only learned that recently. Too bad I wasted so much time waiting for circumstances to change so I could finally know contentment. In that way, I was like most Americans, hoping that something I purchased would change my life for me.
This YouTube thing might not pan out, but that’s OK. I’m flexible. Maybe I don’t have what it takes to seduce 13 year olds across the world into watching me on their cellphones. Maybe I’m not the kind of person who can go viral. I can live with that.
