Choices

Off to a great start in the New Year. I managed to get all my stuff put away and it's organized, and I know where it is. That's a big plus. Back to work today and I was ready for it. I'm ready to get back in to the swing of a lot of things. I'm itching BIG time to get hooking, stitching, and punching. Just don't know what to do first! Choices, choices......... And I still need to choose what I will work on this Thursday at the hook in.
Have you ever noticed how many things we have to choose from? From the time we wake up in the morning, till we go to bed. Choices, choices... What will I choose for breakfast? What will I wear to work? My goodness, go to the grocery store and you've got tons to choose from. Sometimes it can be so overwhelming. A 10 minute trip to the store can turn into a half hour or more, just trying to choose what is going into the cart. Give a child a choice and it can turn into a really big ordeal. Then you find yourself saying, just PICK ONE!! I have thought more and more about this and decided to try and limit myself to the choices that are put in front of me. I know it won't be easy. I will focus more, and stick to what I am setting out to do and not get side tracked by it all, and above all, finish what I start. I tend to fiddle faddle back and forth. Then nothing gets done! I know I'm not alone on this. If "I" have too many choices, then so does everyone else out there.
Do you tend to hesitate when there are so many choices set in front of you?

Sooooo, tonight I will go through some things on my list and make that choice! And by Thursday, I'll share what that is.
I do have to say that there is one thing that I never have a problem choosing. And that is to choose to be in a good mood or a bad mood. I choose a good mood every morning. I cannot stand negativity. Yes, I have my bad days too, but I choose to start my day off right and choose to get out of that poopy mood as fast as I can when I do have one. I'd rather have wrinkles on my face from too much laughing than have wrinkles on my face from a sour puss!
Hope your choices this week are easy ones to make. But why not start off your day in a good mood? It just may lead to making the rest of your daily choices an easier one!

Good Morning Sunshine!!!! I'm glad I chose to read your blog this morning as I am now already in a good mood! :-) Every day I look around me and feel so lucky that I do have so many choices... that's what the American Dream is all about! The possibilities here are endless... it's up to the individual to make them happen! Have a super productive and peaceful day!

What a great attitude. It made me think I need to make a little rug for beside my bed to remind me every morning. Thanks for the idea!
