Walking in the woods today I cried…
Those of you that know me well won’t be surprised. My husband teases me that I cry at mall openings. 😆😍 I don’t cry at mall openings. But I do cry often. Almost every day. And it always…ALWAYS…out of gratitude and love for my life.
I cry when I FEEL this existence.
When I see the beauty in the world. When I take a deep breath and sense the essence of who I am. It overwhelms me.
I learned years ago not to get caught up in my thoughts. Not to focus on my circumstances. That who I am is beyond all that. And I experience what I choose to experience. I feel what I choose to feel. Even in hard times (and believe me, I’ve had plenty) I can find a way to be grateful. And see the beauty.
Sure it’s easy to be grateful and love your life on a beach. Or in the woods. Or at a wedding. Or holding a baby. It’s much harder in traffic. (But I do that too.) Or when a babies crying. (Yep. Been there.) Or when you feel stuck or unhappy or like your husband isn’t holding up his end of the deal. See I’ve made up all those stories too. And found my way out of them. Because they’re just that. Stories. They’re only thoughts in our head. They’re not reality.
We choose our reality.
And I choose my reality to be one based in gratitude and love for my life. It’s all a choice. A POWERFUL choice.
While driving home from our lake house I went through the drive-through at Starbucks. The man over the speaker was so kind and sweet. And when I saw him in person he was soulful and loving. While just handing me a green tea. And so I cried. Again. So grateful that I got to experience that beauty.
Nothing else matters. It’s all just a dream. A movie. Playing in our head. And we write the script.
If you don’t like your life. Change your thoughts. Change your perspective. Write a new script.
It’s ALL possible.
And I’m here if you need me…I’ll be crying. 😊
