I Will

I will find a new way to weave love and compassion into the tapestry of life that works in my current circumstances.

I will go outside for at least a few minutes every day, no excuses. Even if it’s just out my slider onto the deck, breathing fresh air is good for so many things.

I will finally stop fretting about what strangers or any of my loved ones think of me. The former aren’t thinking of me at all, full stop. The latter have clearly and repeatedly demonstrated that they really love me and only want what’s best for me.

I will choose to live this day, not looking back with longing at how I used to be; considering decades ahead wrecks me. Here I am, so here I’ll be.

Now, I just need energy and resolve.
