there are daily choices. Some are very simple and there are those that
are extremely difficult. I have had lunch with people who stress over
what to eat for lunch. Now for me, silly as it may sound, I pretty much
know what I am going to eat for lunch before I see the menu. I also
knew of a gal who would go into a store similar to WALMART
and spend 45 minutes deciding if she was going to purchase a pair of
white socks. I've always believed that using my time
wiser than that was the key. The downside was after going back and forth
on whether she purchase the bland white socks, she decided against it. I
would have made that decision in 5 seconds. We decide if we believe in
God or if we vote Republican, Democrat, or Liberal. Then
again, we also decide if we vote. What about a decision to be happy?
What about a choice of being healthy? Do we get that choice? Sure.
Eating right, exercising and having little or no intake of drugs and
alcohol should give us the edge on being healthy. But
what if after all of listening and "doing the right thing" doesn't
work? I am not saying I have all the answers; however one of
my beliefs is mind over matter. If your mind is positive, maybe your
body is too.
I know so many negative people who have their health and even
have a few bucks stored away. It baffles me that they are not happy. I've
asked them why and they have said things like they don't have enough
money. Now really, what is enough? If we wait for what we believe is
enough, we'll be dead. I have spoken to people on their death bed and
it's not that they were happy knowing they were dying. They were happy
knowing that when they were well, they lived. You see in life, we have
to choose to live, not just to exist. Money isn't what allows us to
live. It's our choice of how to make the most out of life. I believe in
using each day to make a difference in my life. By doing so, maybe I am
making a difference or helping someone else make a difference in her/his
life. We can choose to complain, we can choose to be selfish, but it's
so much more productive to decide to wake up each day with a smile on my
face and enjoy the day. In life, there are no obstacles.. only options.
Make a positive choice with what you've been given. For
today that gift of life is your choice.
Oh, mirror in the
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
