What might I now invent,
that I haven’t yet invented,
that would give me other choices?
-R. & B. Zander (The Art of Possibility), shared by Sarah in Madison, WI
One tree can start a forest,
One smile can begin a friendship,
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,’
And…one choice can change your life.

There are plenty of people in our lives that we didn’t invite.
There are plenty of events that happen without our consent.
There are plenty of things on our to do list that we didn’t add.
And face it: Poop happens, people. That is for reals.
When the crap does get spread out in front of us, we tend to get so caught up in how little say we had that we forget to look around at the choices we still DO have, the people and events and things that we can and have purposely sprinkled onto the cupcakes of our lives. Of course it is okay to feel frustrated, depressed, overwhelmed by the “I didn’t vote on this” stuff. When you are ready to improve your life, to move upward and onward, we’ve got to slip on our grown up pants (mine are overalls, actually, but you know what I mean).
And you know how to get started? I’ll give you a hint:
