Frame of Mind

As the saying goes, you are what you make of yourself.  You can control your own destiny.

Whether you believe it or not, indeed it’s all in the state of mind.  When you feel lousy, you feel down and you feel sick.  In good times, when you are high spirit, you feel good and you smile and the world smiles with you.

If you could paint your current mood onto a canvas, what would that painting look like? What would it depict?

Here where I am at this moment, the weather is cold, windy and my four legged friend can’t even ‘go on the grass’. Often times when he cannot hold it in the middle of the night, I have to drag myself up to find the house keys and let him out.  I have a terrible cough and my whole body aches.  Negatives, negatives and more negatives.


This is what my mood is like…………. but

a little voice told me, the weather may be cold, wet and wild but I have a roof above my head and the heater to keep me warm and something inside me glows.  Feeling thankful, in darkness, I see…….


In life I remind myself daily, in good times, I rejoice.  In bad times, I console myself knowing there are others out there worst off than me.  Living in thankfulness, I create a balance, hard as it may be sometimes but ………

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.
It’s about dancing in the rain.
Life is what you make it.

This is a canvas of my current mood, it may be brighter or darker some days but I will never allow the light to go out.

Create a balance and keep the glow.
