Yesterday started out as a fabulous day. I posted my gratitude. I was on my own personal high. By late afternoon it became increasingly difficult to stay in my joy. My daughter Briana and my son Gregory got sick in school. My ex-husband was trying to start some nonsense with me. And I began to not feel well. I have a Doctor's appointment this morning. I am having trouble breathing and I have this relentless cough. Anyway, I pressed on through my day yesterday determined to stay in joy, peace and love. AArrggh! Even my Crush was having a bad day and was bit cross with me..OK annoyed with me about not being totally in agreement with his perspective. (sigh)
But here's what I know: All those things are external. And really do not have to pull me out of sorts. Nothing can take me out of my joy, peace and love unless I let it. Caring about what happens to the world and all the folks I care about in it will be challenging on some days. How I choose to live is all about where I want to be in my spirit. I can care, and love and be a force of goodwill even in the face of the most challenging times. I choose to be happy.
So today is a new day and I am starting it like I do everyday...Happy and in love and hoping that the day will meet me with the same, but if not, I remain happy, calm and in love.
