I’m precisely as you are. I print this and was also reminded it’s a choice. Day to day. Moment to moment.
Exactly. It is a choice. Every single moment. And so we do what we can do. Thanks for stopping by!
Wonderfully written manifesto and reminder that we all have a choice everyday. Our choices should be made with mindfulness.
Thanks, Bernadette. I appreciate your kind words. We do have choices. And it is up to us to make them wisely. Thank you for stopping by.
Breath of fresh air. Thank you. Love comments for a cause, by the way!
Ah, thank you so much, Cathy. That means so much to me. Sometimes the things that I write in the least amount of time that come from the heart are the things that resonate with people. I never know. 🙂 And Comments for a Cause is THE best thing I could ever do on the blog. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
A great mantra. Will share this! Thanks.
We have such sadness in the US right now and I had to get it out somehow. I don’t have all the answers but at least I know that I can do a little bit in my part of the world by just choosing to love instead of to hate. Thanks for stopping by!
I hope that we all choose love as it’s the only answer.
hate festers. hate makes us weak. Love makes us strong.
Love does make us strong! I totally agree. And love costs us nothing. Nada. Thanks, Pia!
I like what you said so much: that sometimes the best writing is that which you don’t take time to tidy or adjust too much. Your words reflect exactly how I feel, and as Carla suggested, they belong in our hearts where we can reach them easily.
Thanks, Susan! Love wins every time. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment. I really appreciate it more than you can imagine.
Thank you so much, Audrey. I can’t do much but I can choose to do things that make a difference where I am at. And I can always love. Always.
<3 Love this reminder!
Thanks Sam. You live this every day.
Yes. The end!

Thanks, Haralee. And it is up to us to make good choices! 🙂

I am trying–just like you. Gotta keep on keeping on!
Something we could/should all live by. Thanks for sharing, Beth Anne.
Beautiful and from the heart. I can’t say that I live up to this philosophy 100% of the time but it’s something to strive for. Shared!
I can’t say that I live it 100% either but I try and that is what it is all about. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It means a lot to me!
As I made my way down this post, my smile grew more intense. My outer smile and my internal smile. Thank you for this special reminder.
