Day Thirty-Five – At Peace


I am awake, I am alive, and on this grey, rainy kinda day I am simply content, in awe of the healing potential of choices.

Today my To Do List is empty, thanks to choices made yesterday. The laundry is done, the kitchen is too. Nothing to do today except finish the last 20 pages of my book, accomplishing my “book a week” goal for this week. And that reading isn’t a chore at all.

Yes, I sit here today, peaceful in this home I chose, with cupboards full, thanks to decisions made earlier in the week. I feel healthier, stronger thanks to the decision to incorporate daily exercise into my routine. I am rested, thanks to yesterdays multiple naps and I am happy … all thanks to choices.

This morning, as I sip coffee, I acknowledge that I could have made so many other choices but I didn’t. Perhaps finally I am honouring the woman I am, giving her a simpler life built on the foundation of good choices.

So today, my friend, as always you get to choose. Honour the human you are or not. Build yourself a life to enjoy or not. Be a human you can be proud of or not. Be a human others are thrilled to know, or not.

The choice as always, is yours.

I choose to love you and I do.
