One Thing

riverenterer

If I were to choose just one thing to share that makes it possible for my life to be lived from the perspective of an eager and curious earth inhabitant

Rather than a disappointed, wanton victim of a tough hand dealt at the poker table

It would be this:

Freedom is a choice.

Don’t like your cards? Get up from the table with no apology, smile a secret smile, repair your lipstick and appreciate every damn thing you can: family, friends, walking, breathing, bugs and diamonds all…

Turn your face to the sky and say “Thank you for this opportunity to make a life.”

Your belly will soften and Life will pour in like warm and liquid gold.

It won’t last but you just have to keep on lifting your chin and doing it over and over.

Okay.. that was more than one thing..

    And on a similar note, our only freedom in life is to allow other people to choose.
