I think it's awesome how we have the opportunity at any point to choose joy. I wish this next line boasted about how I choose it all the time, but truth is, I don't.
I forget to- a lot. Especially when I am sick. Don't act like you don't get a little frustrated when a cold invites itself in and lingers around way beyond it's expected stay. I'm human, so it'd be rare to find me all chipper 24/7. However, I don't think pulling the "I'm human" phrase is an excuse to not try and choose joy.
In moments of blah I have the ability to choose the direction in which my attitude will go. No one can do that for me. So, despite the long lasting remnants of this cold, I have tried very hard to choose joy.
And let me tell you, it's been a lot easier to deal with all the things that come with a cold and all the other stuff that has piled on top of it. It's not always easy to choose it, but it's also not impossible.
Choose joy as much as you can, whenever you can. it's good medicine.
Even better than NyQuil.
And is it just me or is it crazy that no one has found a cure for the common cold yet?
Until next time…
