Blessing and a curse

Every day, every hour, every moment we have a choice to do what we know to be right.  We have a choice to get up on time or sleep in.  We have a choice to eat well, to exercise, to speak kindly to people.  The past doesn’t matter.  Our family or personal history doesn’t matter. 

Every day, hour, moment we have a choice.  Just because we ate a piece of pie doesn’t mean we have to eat a second one.  Just because we have never gone for a walk around the neighborhood doesn’t mean that now isn’t a great time for it.  Just because we have never gotten along with this person doesn’t mean that today isn’t the day to give it a try. 

Every moment is a new chance.  Now is a new chance, a new choice. And if we do make a bad choice, we aren’t stuck.  We get another chance to turn it around.

About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.
