Today is a new day, always remember that you have two choices….

Hello Beautiful world and all of the wonderful people that are following me along this journey,

A friend wrote me this morning, “How do you stay so positive and up beat? You are courageous and I admire that in you. How can I get the same? Feeling kind of down and lost today.” and it inspired this post…. I thought I’d share a little love and light with all of you just in case there is anyone else out there feeling a little down and lost.

My response to her was simple. Each morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood. I always choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I always choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I always choose the positive side of life. Some people say to me “But it’s not always that easy,” ….actually it is! Life is all about choices. Once you cut away all the junk, and take the time to really examine every situation…it is all a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. It’s your choice how you live your life. Don’t let other people or bad circumstances get you down, think of all of the good things in your life and turn that frown upside down. 

Each and every person is wonderful, talented & beautiful in their own way. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise! Sometimes we just completely complicate things that are really quite simple. One of the things we often do is chase and chase and chase happiness…….and we don’t even know if what we are chasing is really going to bring us happiness….we just “hear” that it will….or we have been told that it will…or we think that we are chasing what we “should” be chasing and that once we finally catch it, surely we will be happy.

Beautiful friends…there are so many ways to find joy, bliss, peace and contentment without chasing anything at all…..and it’s really very simple, just remember that everyday may not be good, but there is something good in every day. Someday everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason. Have a wonderful day!!
