Everyone has a story and a season where life is hard. In those moments you have a choice. The easy choice is to be angry and sad with the world and your situation but the difficult choice of choosing happiness can make all the difference.
After Payton's accident, waking up in the hospital she would tell herself, "I choose happy today", she realized how much better her day was when she chose to focus on the good things God has done instead of the bad that has happened.
God is with us even in our darkest moments. He is working and doing good because He is good! Having a "Choose Happy" mindset isn't always easy, but God can make good out of the bad.
Both Makayla & Payton have chose to lean onto God and focus on all the good He has done and continues to do.
