This is a post from a really old blog that I had a number of years ago – I’ve just copied and added to it a bit.
You know, we can be tired, grumpy, unhappy and generally miserable – it’s really up to us – or in my case, it’s up to me. Doesn’t matter what has happened, doesn’t matter if someone has been “mean” to me, disagreed with me or whatever.
I can be mad…. I can be one of the above, OR I can “choose” Joy!
It’s all about choices. We choose to love, to hate, to be mad, to be hurt…. and on and on. Don’t let others control your emotions! I can only “get my feelings hurt” if I allow it. And, I choose to NOT allow it.
I designed this cross stitch pattern to remind myself – the finished model hangs on my living room wall just to remind me lest I relapse and forget.
