Serenity Sunday

~ I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

~ Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

~ Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

~ Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

~ Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

~ Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

~ Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

~ Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

~ Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

~ Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Universe has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.

~ Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

~ What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

Have a GREAT DAY!

"Every moment of life, whether filled with pain or joy, has the potential for grace realized"
Every day, our perceptions determine how we feel, how we live that day; always try to choose positive=happiness...Hope you are recovering well from your surgery...Happy week, Liz!

Thank you. I really needed this today. Been having a hard time dealing with things and this reminded me that things really are better than I'm making them out to be right now.
