We have choices in Life. I believe we chose to be here, so we could better ourselves. Life is not just how we end up, it's how we live it--how we react and function with the particular set of circumstances and gifts we've been given. THAT is what defines us.
So, today, I'm choosing to be grateful. Because I have a lot to be grateful for. Sure, I could whine about some things in my life, (and my Hubby will tell you I do plenty of that) but I also choose to laugh. Because Life is funny too. Life is Unpredictable. Messy. Frustrating. Lovely. Complicated. Heartbreaking. Joyous.
How we choose to emerge from each experience in Life is entirely up to us.
I used to LOATHE the saying "When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade!" It's cheesy. It's cliche. But it's smart advice. Because when Life gives you rotten potatoes, you simply cut out the rotten parts and add some cheese and sour cream and chives and bake it up and make it something delectable.
And now I'm hungry for breakfast, so I'll end this post. But today, I'm choosing gratitude.
What will you choose?
