My reflection today:
“Choose to be well in every way. Choose to be happy no matter what. Decide that each day will be good just because you’re alive.
You have power over your thoughts and feelings. Don’t let your circumstances dictate how you feel. Don’t let your thoughts and feelings color your situation blue or desperate.
Even if you don’t have everything you want, even if you’re in pain or in need, you can choose to be joyful no matter what you’re experiencing. You are more than your body, your physical presence, and your material possessions. You are spirit. You have your mind, heart, and soul, and there is always something to be thankful for.
Decide that life is good and you are special. Decide to enjoy today. Decide that you will live life to the fullest now, no matter what. Trust that you will change what needs changing, but also decide that you’re not going to put off enjoying life just because you don’t have everything you want now. Steadfastly refuse to let anything steal your joy. Choose to be happy… and you will be!” – Donna Fargo
This is so true! I think of Sister Helen who has gone through hip surgery, Covid-19, quarantine and now hospice. I talk with her every day and I have not heard her complain once. She always is asking,”How is everything there?”. Life is certainly not easy for her, it’s not something that she would have chosen but she has accepted it. I certainly hope to grow old like her, she is a great role model.?
