I choose life, joy and guilty pleasure

Yesterday was Election Day in the USA.

Constant noise flooded every channel on television.

Debates , wondering , questioning and posturing dominated the airwaves.

The phrase that repeated in my head was : ‘ Not my monkey – Not my zoo’.

Every time I turned on the TV anxiety filled my body .

Even writing this on the day after I feel the tension and tears rise in my eyes.

At this point I have a choice.

I can give in to the fear or I can turn off the noise.

I can turn off the TV .

I can ignore the constant input .

Last night, I chose to watch three episodes of ‘Murder She Wrote’ .

Not mind blowing but it was at least a calorie free, humorous distraction.

So what is my point this morning ?

I vote for ordinary.

I vote for simple pleasures that turn off the anguish.

I vote to refresh my body, my soul and my spirit.

I vote to choose life on this Wednesday morning.

I can’t change the world BUT I can change my world .

I can choose simple pleasures like

‘Murder She Wrote’
