The Other Option

Live in the moment
Experience it...
Only you can control whether it will be positive or negative
Embrace and relish in the positive ... full of emotion
Your feelings of LOVE, of JOY, of ACCOMPLISHMENT and SUCCESS
Acknowledge and accept the negative ...free of emotion
the discomfort, anxieties, the fears or despair.

A life without discomfort ...
emotional or physical...
is reality for no man.
To obsess upon these challenges … is the DEATH of LIFE.
.
We have to wish to experience LIFE...
We cannot ignore what we have the ability to control
Nor can we obsess on what is reality …
So to live in the moment is all we really have
… considering the other option …
the choice is easy

Thank you so much ... we must all learn to appreciate the present because we never really know if there will be a future ... so many people take their lives for granted and miss what is most important the simple things ... the unbelievably peaceful smell of the air on a brisk fall morning ... the endless blue sky ... the rush of a gentle flowing creek ... the joyous, calming songs of the birds outside the window ... but most importantly "the now" ... that is really all we can be sure of ... cheers
