I Choose to be Happy. Today, I choose to be - not I did choose or I will choose or I have chosen. No, today I choose to be. In this moment I choose to be happy.I choose to be happy in spite of my circumstances, in spite of negative comments from others, in spite of unfulfilled dreams and expectations.I also choose to move forward from the past. I choose to design and create my destiny. I choose to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be. I choose to love and give and serve until it hurts, because to love give and serve sometimes hurts but I choose to do it because that is God's calling on my life - for he gave and it hurt and he served and it hurt but he did it anyway.I choose to see the best in people - I choose to see their intention and that their heart is in the right place. I choose to see their mistakes and imperfections as their humanness - the one thing that connects all of humanity - that we are all not perfect yet broken and HE came to save us. He came to restore us.I choose to believe in a better life for my son far exceedingly more abundant, blessed, joyous, meaningful and full of love then I can imagine.
