What’s on my mind…

So, this will be a kind of “Quote of the day” post. So, I love the show Being Mary Jane on BET. And there are quotes at the beginning of every episode, so some of these will come from there. Today’s does.

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

This quote reminds me of a line from the finale of one of my favorite musicals, Next to Normal. The line, “…and you find out you don’t have to be happy at all; to be happy you’re alive.” And today I embrace and celebrate that. Know I may not always be super cheery, but I find joy in the fact that I am alive and living. I get to do what I love and there’s so much for me on the horizon of the future. How can I not at least be happy about that? Challenge yourself to see that everyday you wake up, allow yourself to feel, because that’s human. Just don’t let your soul wallow and get bogged down in it! YOU ultimately control your happiness!
Have blessed day peeps!

Sing, laugh, love.
