"Nothing is predestined.
The obstacles of your past
can become the gateways
that lead to new beginnings."
-- Ralph Blum
[Classic post from 3-31-13]
Today is a day of wonderful new beginnings. Or not.
Today is a day of new clarity of vision. Or not.
Today is a new day and you and I get to choose again. And in each moment, choose again.
We also get to choose to cut our ties with the past--the hurts, mistakes, missed opportunities, shoulda's, coulda's, regrets, blame. Or not.
We get to crucify ourselves or experience the freedom of rebirth, hearing with new ears, seeing with new eyes, paying attention to that which is worthy of your attention.
I've always loved how Paul says in Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things."
Our Thoughts, Words, And Deeds Reflect Accurately Our Attention.
Spread Some Joy Today--Choose joy. It is purely a choice.
