Do You?

Do you REALLY want to know the Truth? I didn’t. I ran from it for years, trying desperately to escape the idea that I was responsible for all of my problems & that changing myself was the only real solution. I got comfortable with blaming others, blaming genetics, blaming the president… even blaming God if need be. I was hell bent on proving that my misery was outside of my control & there was nothing I could do about it. Now I can see that that was all a lie. The goal for today: know that the Truth is that every one of us is free to be exactly as happy, or miserable as we choose to be! Have a great day everybody!


Right now, at this very moment… we have the power to choose what we will think about… & how we will feel. We can choose to be happy & helpful… we can choose to be stubborn & ignorant… we can choose to be mean & nasty… or we can choose to be kind & loving. The only thing we don’t get to choose… is to not choose. Whether we are consciously aware of our choices, or they take place subconsciously, doesn’t matter… we ALWAYS choose! The goal for today: choose patience, tolerance, kindliness & love! Have a great day everybody!

Make Up Your Mind

“I believe that most people are as happy as they make up their mind to be” ~Abraham Lincoln. When I woke up this morning, I had a choice: I could think about aches & pains & problems… or I could think about what I can do to be helpful, positive & productive. The choice was mine & mine alone; no one could force me to think or feel a certain way… I always choose. The goal for today: focus on positives & if something negative comes to mind, focus on fixing it. Seek positives… & find positives! Have a great day everybody!
