Today I choose…..

Today I choose…
To leave the past in the past, anything that happened yesterday or beyond, cannot hurt me anymore. It does not affect my future, where I’m going, or how I’m choosing to live my life.

Today I choose…
To not allow cancer or any other health issues to dictate my future choices anymore. Just because I had cancer once does not mean it’s waiting in the wings to haunt me. Today I’m letting go of the elephant in the room and choosing to leave cancer behind.

Today I choose…
To forgive myself, to trust in my abilities, to live my life with honor and respect and to not seek the approval of humans any longer, for they are just as flawed as I am. I know my body, mind and soul better than anyone else. The only opinion that matters to me is God’s.

Today I choose…
To love, honor and respect my children’s decisions on how they choose to live their lives.  I’ve had my time, it’s their time now, to grow, love, have successes and make mistakes. It’s not their responsibility to feel responsible for me.  Then, I ask them for the same love, honor and respect as I make choices for my life in the future.

Today I choose…
To feed my body, mind and soul only healthy foods. A feast of good thoughts, healthy habits and reading about Jesus. The body keeps score so my body’s going to have to get used to winning the game and not coming in second.

Today I choose…
To be a light in someone’s life, to help heal broken hearts and wounded souls and to be part of their joy, not their anguish.

Today I choose…
To beat to my own drum, to think outside the box and honor that simple, compassionate, empathetic side of me that some may feel is a little strange, and if someone is smiling or laughing because of my actions then its all worth it.

Today I choose…
To find joy in the moments, to make peace with the past and have excitement for the future.

Today I choose…
To live courageously, to fight my chronic pain with peace not fear, to battle everything that comes my way holding on to God and facing each challenge one day at a time.

Today I choose..
To love, honor, and cherish God, for without him my past would haunt me, my pain would cripple me, my future would be dark and empty and I would have no hope.

Today I choose…
Because I can…
Because life is a choice…
Because the roads we take, whether good or bad, are choices…
Because the decisions we make daily are choices…
We choose to be happy or we choose to be controlled by sadness, anger, rage, and hurt.
The past doesn’t matter, who hurt us doesn’t matter, what happened to us doesn’t matter. All that matters are how we treat others, and the choices we make today to be happy and healthy.

We all have a choice to make.
Are we going to be a light in someone’s life or the reason for their darkness?

It’s our choice.

God Bless,
Kathleen
