The other day I had one of those terrible, no good, very bad days. My head was bursting, my heart was full, my attitude stunk. Sometimes I catch myself having days like this and it makes me sad. It saddens me because I know it is a choice, every bad attitude, every unkind word, or darkened thought, it is a choice, it is a mind frame and decision I can control and change. I need to check myself sometimes, I need to rearrange thoughts, and step back from situations. I need to rehears little pep talks and question my intentions and my perceptions.
This morning I woke up and here are the thoughts that passed through my mind. Personally, spiritually, as a friend, a sibling, a daughter or son, are you living your life to your fullest potential? When you meet a stranger on the street, when you go home to your lover, when you set goals for yourself, when your working in your job, what can you add to live out your best? When you have to deal with a miserable person, or are challenged with a competitive friend, when your storm is picking up speed and turning into a tornado are you maintaining your beautiful self? Those tough life challenges, or personal convictions, the easy moments in life where you are nothing but still; with your time, your money, your past and your present are you exactly who you want to be and proud of who you are?
Today I will be my potential, I will live my next twenty-four hours being the best possible me because I CHOOSE to do so!
