~~Joy is a decision, a really brave one, about how you are going to respond to life.~~ Wess Stafford
I love waking up in the mornings! It's a new day and anything wonderful...spectacular....amazing can happen. I get to wake up my son for school which is a joy as his smile makes my day. I get to smell the delightful aroma of my favorite coffee. I get to hear the birds chirping as I go out to work.
So many lovely things happen in just the course of an hour! There is no time for me to worry or get upset because I no longer fit into my best jeans. There is no time to feel sad because I'm getting older. There is no time to dwell on things that don't make me smile.
Each day....each lovely day!....brings me so much to be grateful for. Each day brings me new challenges, new smiles, new joy. Positive things are all around me and I want to enjoy each moment.
When negative things happen....and of course they do....it only serves to remind me to be thankful for the many blessings I have. When my heart breaks....and of course it does.....it only serves to remind me to be grateful to those who help it heal. To me, life is a balance of positives and negatives.....and I will not ever let the negatives win. They are only reminders of how much the positives enrich me and nurture me.
I wish for all of you a very special day....filled with joy, laughter, and the understanding of how today is precious and you are precious as well. Enjoy your day and do not allow those negative thoughts about smoking ruin the joy of being quit. Enjoy it.
