It's a Wonderful Life.

It is Saturday, a lovely sunny day. I can do anything I want in the next 24 hours. What a gift that is! So, what do I choose? As I laid in bed this morning doing my meditation, I kept asking myself this question. This is what I came up with:
I choose to be joyous today, as it is a choice and one we don't exercise enough. I choose to read my book one more time before sending it off to the wonderful poet, Erin Davis, to edit :-).
Then I think a large, healthy, yummy breakfast is in order. Since I have run the last 6 days straight, I choose to be lazy today and not run, sometimes you have to be lazy :-).
I am not sure what comes next, but I think I will probably work on the two paintings I started this week, I may even finish one, or I have new clay to play with and I am itching to get my hands into it. I also have family and friends to call and a zillion books to read!
Everyday, we are blessed with another 24 hours, is a day to celebrate. We can't know when our time is up and life is so short. Choose joy and love today, choose to be happy.
Have a wonderful Saturday, and let me know what delicious things you chose today. XOXO

What a gift today is, indeed. You always give me such important perspective, Annie. I am going to tackle the clutter in my office and then treat myself to a movie with the hubby.

Sounds like you're off to a wonderful start, Annie. What an uplifting perspective to share with us. It's good to hear that sometimes. : )

I've done a lot so far today. My ambition finally came out of hiding and I've been taking advantage of the rare situation. Had the perfect cup of coffee this morning, went to the farmers' market, hoed rows into the garden, planted seeds, transplanted herbs, made lunch, and now I'm about to make some homemade buns for our cheeseburgers tonight. Dinner will be on the patio...cheeseburgers (local beef), sweet potato fries,and homebrew beer. You're invited! You should live closer. : )

Enjoy your weekend!

I am so glad you had such wonderful choices you could make. I appreciate that you wanted to choose things that brought you joy. Such a powerful practice! Like you, I think we choose joy, just like we choose our inner peace (or lack of it). We choose gratitude. And all the other amazing "spirit" qualities available to us. Or we choose the qualities of the ego to immerse ourself in as well. It IS up to us to choose and I am so glad you are choosing your bliss! I chose mine today too!

It sounds like you all have great days going. Starlene, I wish so much I could be there and share that yummy food(all but the burger as I am a vegetarian:-), and the wonderful company.
