“Once you choose hope anything is possible”…Christopher Reeves
There are a lot of reasons to feel apprehensive these days. Between the unstable financial conditions … the wars and conflicts that keep popping up … and the numerous societal woes that are becoming more evident with each passing day I think it would be safe to say that conditions are discouraging at best and downright scary at worst.
Despite the gloomy news that journalists seem to love proclaiming I am hopeful and yes … even “perky”. You see I know that no matter what is going on around me … no matter how glum predictions may be … and no matter what anyone else may think … inside of me is the creator of my world … and it is me! I am the only one who can … and does … make the decisions and choices about how I am going to think, feel and act. There may sometimes be a lot of knee-jerk reacting going on … but even that is changeable … if I so wish.
Like Christopher Reeves I have seen the most remarkable things happen once my focus and my Heart were firmly fixed on Hope, Connection and Determination. Throughout all the big medical challenges I retained hope for a brighter, less pain-filled future … and I’m living it! Through the good times and the really yucky times I held on tight to my connection to Capital “L” Life and now it is deeper than ever … and finally I was determined that my inner choices would be Perky choices … that I would peer at the world through Ms. Sunshine’s magical lenses and that I would prevail. And lo and behold … here I am living the brighter future … feeling the possibilities open up before me and realizing that once I choose hope everything else became possible.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
