I want to choose happiness. I want to choose love above anger. I want to choose life above feeling powerless. I want to be the Creator of my own life. I want to focus on the good things and not on the bad things. I want to be like children, who get excited about ladybugs (and spiders, too), about jumping in puddles, about balloons, and flowers, birds in the sky, the rain and the sun, winter and summer, a lint on the floor. I know that life isn't perfect, sometimes it's sad, and sometimes it's downright terrible. But it's beautiful, too, every day.
When I get up in the morning, I will see my children lying next to me, not the dirty socks in the corner, or the gray weather outside. During lunch, I will see Sisie's big, beautiful wise eyes, and not the mess she's made on the table, the floor, her clothes, my clothes. I will see my family, my friends, all the good things in life. I will choose happiness.
I'm joining Bluebirdbaby in A Year of Choice. Please read her post, it's powerful.
