Long day at work. I spent a lot of time on video calls listening to trainings – most boring. Had internet connection issues at my office and my ADHD brain was in full rebellion. By late afternoon, mood was crashing and thoughts were descending down long, dark hallways….
Then I came home and realized, I needed to get something to eat = perhaps not the best choice, but certainly an improvement over what I have been eating. I needed different input, so I listened to a choir of Covid ward ICU nurses who had started singing to their patients, and an incredibly hear-felt song by a cancer patient, who added, “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”
No matter what, no matter who, no matter how – the choice is mine. Here. Now. I choose happiness.
