All of life comes down to the many wonderful choices we make each day. Let's use them to choose a lifetime of love, joy, peace, happiness, goodness, delight, and oneness with God for ourselves. Let's use them to bless the world, help others, and bring truth, joy, love, and light to everyone we meet.
Joseph J. Mazzella
GOOD MORNING !
After a gloomy old Monday filled with clouds and rain, I thought maybe I’d better work at getting my attitude back in shape or I’d never be able to make it through this work week. The weekend was filled with sunshine warmth and fun. Going back to work and being chilled with the rain and wind I came home Monday evening feeling like I should just hang it up and go to bed.
Choices are something we all make for ourselves. Sometimes we just go along with the flow and join the crowd by complaining. It does us very little good though. I can complain all I want, but it will still rain.
So I’m going to take the advice from the wise people in the poem and quote above and choose to bring a little sunshine to others and just maybe in doing so I’ll help myself out at the same time.
Spring in northern Ohio is full of ups and downs for sure. I won’t let the weather get me down; I’m going to make my own sunshine somehow. I think I’ll start with a SMILE.
The reality of our lives may result from many outside factors, none of which we can control. The only thing we can really control in this life is our own mental attitudes
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Today I smiled, and all at once
Things didn't look so bad.
Today I shared with someone else,
A little bit of hope I had
Today I sang a little song,
And felt my heart grow light.
I walked a happy little mile,
With not a cloud in sight
Today I worked with what I had,
And longed for nothing more,
And what had seemed like only weeds,
Were flowers at my door.
Today I loved a little more,
And complained a little less.
And in the giving of myself,
I forgot my weariness.
You can't make someone else's choices.
You shouldn't let someone else make yours
