I choose to smile instead of cry. 🙃 I choose to be grateful instead of ungrateful. I choose to be an optimist instead of a pessimist. I refuse to give up when that’s the easier way.
✨ They say there is a silver lining and a light at the end of the tunnel for every dark period of time. Every dark day that bleeds into a week, weeks, months and maybe even years. I have faith in the universe. 🌍 I have faith there is a deeper purpose and a reason I keep going through a series of unfortunate events.
I’m strong. 🙏🏻And I remind myself every day there’s always the choice to find gratitude for one small thing every moment I breathe. I mean- what a blessing it was to have fresh, ripe fruits this morning. 🍌🥭💦 If that’s the only thing amazing I have happen today that’s absolutely something to be thankful for.
✨ But then I see someone smile hello to me on my coastal walk, and I start smiling. ☀️ I’m grateful for someone being kind to me. It reminds me that whatever unfortunate thing someone/something did to me, is one thing I can focus on.
Or I can choose out of my own validity to remember this girl- and her smile and how a smile can be something someone is grateful for.
✨ I practice what I preach GlowGetters. I am choosing gratitude today. 😌 - 6 minutes ago
