Motivational Monday...Our Senses
More than ever, we are tasked with adapting to a new way we are living our lives. I have faith it will be temporary.
It may appear that our choices are limited now...home delivery instead of dine-in, limits on the number of certain grocery items, and how we spend our days.
But one choice we always have is the ability to choose how we adjust to and handle what our daily lives brings us.
Whether or not you believe in God or some other source of life, we have been given the power to choose. We are given senses that can color how we experience life around us.
Eyes to see the beauty of the first flower of the season or the ugly weeds around you.
Ears to hear the melodious song of the mocking bird or the complaints of others.
A nose to appreciate the aroma of freshly baked bread or one to turn up at what you don’t like.
A mouth to offer thanks to all those in your life or one to criticize everything you see.
However, what drives those senses are the heart and brain that enable us to choose how we use them.
Volume up. Hope you enjoy the music of a Texas mockingbird.
“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”
