choices, thank God

finding joy on difficult days

finding joy on difficult days

every day is a series of moments

some moments can be pure joy, some can be pure hell, most are some mixture of the two extremes

in the mix, i have a choice

i can remember and give thanks for the blessing of each moment of joy

or i can allow myself to prolong a series of moments that challenge my faith in love

in the moment i feel it all

and because i’ve opened my heart to the joys, it’s possible to remember them clearly in a dynamic way

to recall the connection, stillness, happiness by sound, smell, touch, taste, sight

i store moments of joy with my senses and they become accessible even after a series of challenging moments threatens to overwhelm them

i always have a choice

at the end of each day, no matter what ratio, i choose to reignite the joy
