Today I choose hope.

Today I choose hope. Above all, hope gives us the light to greet a new day. Hope can rally the human spirit like no other emotion.

In the darkest of night, hope helps us reach beyond what we thought possible.

During these difficult days in south Texas, I stand in hope for the safety of all people, their recovery and rebuilding.

Today I choose hope. What do you choose?

Today I choose awe

Today I choose awe.

This morning hundreds of thousands of people from across the world stood together in US cities and the countryside to celebrate the spectacular awe of the universe. They did so united by a force far greater than humankind and perhaps at a moment in time when we needed be reminded of what we all share.

Today I choose awe and embrace this celebration. What do you choose?

Today I choose grace

In grace I can stay centered in the most difficult of situations, so today I choose grace.

Grace can be defined as a smooth and effortless movement. For me it is like yoga pose to be mastered with the self in alignment and the breath supporting the body and soul. Today I will work on this alignment, knowing the more centered I become I share it with the world around me. It is an active, thought filled choice.

Today I chose grace. What do you choose?

Today I choose…

Today I choose courage. It takes both thought and action to move courageously in the world. I choose courage.

What do you choose?

Fear is a default emotion. Many psychologies agree all mammals (including us!) are born with fear and panic to help the species to survive. As we as humans mature the cognitive portion of our brain develops and we are given thought to help us evaluate.

Every day we get to decide to proceed in courage or be tossed and turned by our fears.  Fear keeps our body tense, our heart accelerated and our mind less creative. Long term fear weakens us and makes us less effective at work and with our families. When we accept we have a choice, we can exercise our emotional muscle to experience courage over fear.

Today I have a choice and I choose courage.
