A Choice and a Chance

Every day is a choice, a chance to do better. Maybe today I will have my best day yet.

Gratitude

When negative, self doubting, berating thoughts show up, I replace them with a positive attitude of gratitude.

The Life I Have

When I feel frustrated with where I am, or who I am, I remind myself the life I have is the one I chose.

I got together with a longtime friend of mine recently. She has four kids; the younger two came into her family late in life. She talked about where she would be if she chose to put her career first and didn’t have kids.  She said: “Where would I be right now? No worries forever and ever about kids.”

I think just the opposite, where would I be if I chose a different path, to have a family, kids to worry about forever and ever.

I don’t allow myself to question or wonder what if. I remind myself; the life I have is the life I chose. Wherever I am I chose it.

I’m grateful for it, grateful for the choice.

If ever I’m unhappy, I just look in the mirror; it’s all up to me.

Best wishes for your Holidays!

What Really Matters?

Anyone living in California was forced to answer the question last week: what really matters? With fires raging throughout the state, I, like most people made a list of what to take if forced to evacuate. The list was long, but realistically if I had 15 minutes to get out it would be my dog, some cash, some important papers, and if I could, a few pictures. Fortunately, I did not have to leave.

I spent time every day last week reaching out to friends living in areas affected by the flames to make sure they were good in their homes. The guest room in my home was ready as was I, ready to listen, comfort, and just be present. What else could I do?

What really matters? It’s not accumulated stuff of a lifetime, rather caring for others in whatever way I can. I’m making it my business to keep that mindset every day.

If we all do it, we too will be firefighters. A different kind, but very necessary.

This or That

I limit my choices for better decisions. It’s this or that. That’s it.
