“I Can Choose This or That”

“I Can Choose This or That”

Today I’m reminded how one negative thing can overshadow all the many good things in my life…if I let it.

How can one thing overshadow all the good, I wonder. Then I have to go deeper and ask myself what this one negative thing is really trying to tell me about myself. I realize it isn’t even about me, but how I react to it. I can be a victim or the survivor. What I choose can only be decided by what I understand about both. I know what it feels like to be a victim, and I know what it feels like to be a survivor. I base the choose on how I want to feel. That’s the beauty of freedom, I can choose this or that, and whichever I choose will determine how I live my life today.

Sometimes to get to a place of clarity, we have to do something good for ourselves. So I decided to go out and play in my garden, it always clears my head. I’d forgotten how good the warmth of the sun felt as it filled me with energy as only the sun can do. The fresh air was rejuvenating, and as if that wasn’t enough a bouquet of crocuses in all their glory caught my attention. The hidden beauties of life that can only be seen if we make the effort to move out of the darkness and into the light. I am once again filled with the abundance of gratitude, and I wonder why anyone would choose to be anywhere else.IMG_1425

I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
