I’m faced with countless choices.
Everything from the little things…
What should I have for breakfast?
To the big ones…
How can I balance the many aspects of my life?
Among the most crucial choices,
One that affects every other area,
What will my attitude be today?
I’ve lived long enough to realize
How I act…
And even, how I feel…
Depend on the attitude I choose.
I’ve been in a funk lately.
Oh, I could blame the situations around me,
But I know better.
I was making the wrong choice.
I was not choosing to be deliberately thankful.
I was allowing myself to be suffocated.
I may change careers.
I may make new friends
And lose touch with others.
I may move.
But my thoughts and attitudes
Will go with me wherever I go.
Among the many choices I will make today,
I will choose to be thankful.
To have a positive outlook.
To be a blessing.
In so doing,
The sky’s the limit!
The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment: “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:15, 16, NIV).
