“Today I Choose Joy” by Carmen Whitehead
A wonderful reminder that each day that you have a choice.


This morning, as I sipped my coffee I was thinking about my book. My book is awaiting my attention and my book that is already written but simply requires to be placed in some sort of order.

For those of you who are very organized and think in a different way than I do would simply have it in you to do it in lickety split time. I on the other hand am dragging my feet.

So, what is this?

This dear human beings, is your fear of the future. Things in your life are unfolding and you get to choose what to do next.

From our standpoint you cannot lose. You are a winner. You have choice.

If you have a desire within you then you have the ability to manifest it in some way shape or form. The problem is that you want it to look a certain way and to be a certain way.

This can cause much anxiety. We see many of you thinking about the best ways that you think things should be done. We see you making choices based on information that you don’t actually have.

No wonder there is feet dragging.

But, if you were to be in appreciation of your desires and your appreciation of your choices and in appreciation of the whole process with all of the possibilities that will arrive on your doorstep to help you along, then you would be skipping towards your future.

Like a child, you would be skipping to the playground, anticipating the new friends you might meet, skipping towards the equipment that you get to play on, skipping towards the anticipation of all that playground might offer you.

So, Linda is a little stuck, but we were whispering in her ear. Sometimes she listens to us and sometimes she chooses to take action.

You see that despite our desire to guide Linda in a way that feels good to her, she still has choice. She chooses to write the words that we whisper in her ear. She chooses to put it out there. She has choices.

You all have choices. You all have those whisperings that tease you in a direction and you too get to choose.

Your life is yours to live and we see that when you look around you and find things that make you smile and feel good that things begin to unfold magically. At the very least you will feel better. That is no small thing.

Feeling good created from a space of gratitude will not go away. You are not requiring one thing to be right in order to be in gratitude. You are looking for things to appreciate and there is always something to be in gratitude for. Always.

It doesn’t always feel like that though. Life can get in your way. That is a good thing. Let life cause you to find things that make you smile and warm the interior of your being.

There is much around you to appreciate and planet earth offers many things to appreciate when all else fails.

The sun rises and sets each day and often there are marvelous colors involved! The birds sing their song and truly they are not reliant on your attention in their ability to sing, but when you notice their song, they know!

The flowers poke through the earth providing a respite from concrete and when you see them, they know!

We could go on and on.

What we want you to know is that everything in your life flourishes with your appreciation. Everything does whether you are aware of it or not.

Now if you could take this at face value and grow this into other directions then you will see your life change in ways that will astonish you.

If you could sustain this and consciously take time three times a day to stop and consciously acknowledge something, anything as being pleasant and pleasing to look upon or be engaged with, then you would find yourself in a whole new world.

The magic in this is that others will get on the bandwagon, maybe not the ones you would expect, but the energy of gratitude is always an invitation for others.

Some of them are just waiting for you to acknowledge them. Every one of you just likes nature flourishes when they are seen and heard in their totality. You may have to look beneath the surface a little bit. You may have to see past what is presented to you.

But if you look you will see it.

Just like you might not notice the flower growing in the cracks in a deserted parking
lot and only notice the concrete but if your decision that day was to find the things that were pleasing to you, you would see the flower. You couldn’t help but see it!

You get to choose how you see the world.

So, what do you see?

What do you see?

What do you see? Now-what do you see?

One thing more dear ones, what do you see?

You get to choose and that is the gift that you arrived on planet earth with. As gifts go it is the best gift possible. Just for you and believe it or not, just for fun.

One more thing, dear sweet humans, remember to choose the joy.
