What is You Choose?
There exists a distinction between “happy in spite of” and “happy if only,” the former being a benefit of old age, the latter a vexation of youth. “Happy in spite of” entails a choice to be happy; it acknowledges problems, but doesn’t put them in the way of contentment. “Happy if only” pins happiness on outside circumstances: if only I had more money, less pain, a nicer house or spouse, I’d be happy as a clam. The You Choose logo and message serves to remind us that we have the power to make the choice to be “happy in spite of” whatever obstacles face us rather than to let them keep us down.
