What is the Difference?

2018 has not been my best year so far. My father is having health issues. One of my best friends is having pain issues. And I am having business issues. Throughout all of that I have had moments of pure joy and I have had moments of incredible pain. What is the difference?  I am in the same situation when I have felt both of these things. The exact same situation.

It is my choice what to focus on. What I focus on affects how I feel. I choose to focus on gratitude. I choose to focus on possibility and hope. I choose to focus on love and happiness. This is my life.  When I am old and grey I will look back on now as amazing. I have an amazing wife and amazing daughters. I have an amazing family. I have amazing friends. I have a career that I am passionate about. My life is amazing. Choose amazing.

I am grateful for dance parties.

I am grateful for too short astronaut outfits.

I am grateful for good books.

I am grateful for dreaming about the future.

I am grateful for so many possibilities.

I am grateful for snuggling in tight.

I am grateful for a healthy father.

I am grateful for a Thor with hope.

I am grateful for deep breaths.

I am grateful for full smiles.

I am grateful for Amber being genuine.

I love my life! Thank you!
