The choice this morning…

They say you have a choice every morning, in how you will see the world. On what you will focus on. On what your reality will be. They say you can choose to look on the bright side, to look for beauty and embrace happiness, joy, and peace or to dwell among the shadows and see the problems and anger, hatred, and hurt.

And yeah, there is something in going out there and seeking beauty. But in some ways faking happiness and ignoring real pain and real problems- that isn’t something I want to do. There has to be real beauty and real joy out there, and even when encountering or confronting problems and pain, we have to be more than plastic smiles and numbed out, self focussed zombies.
I am making a choice today to find that balance. To seek joy and beauty, but not to ignore problems or suffering.
