Choices

Standard

It all comes down to choices.
Microscopic, seemingly
inconsequential
choices.
Snooze or get right up?
Meditate or check your email?
Exercise or sleep in?
Read or watch TV?
Write in your journal or check Instagram?
Cheesesteak or salad?
Work hard, or just coast through?
Focus on what you love
or dwell on what bothers you?
Second after second
minute after minute
hour after hour
day after day
year after year
these choices add up
to a life.
YOUR life.
Now, in this very moment,
what’s your choice?

You Are Worth It

Standard

Be available to joy.
Make yourself ready for pleasure.
Stay open to possibility.
Search for evidence that you are loved.
Prepare yourself for unimaginable delight.
Trust that this moment is good
and life is beautiful
and you are wanted.
Stand in complete appreciation
of the majesty of existence.
Get ready for endless laughter
and waves of bliss.
You are worth it.

When You Welcome The Universe

Standard

When you welcome
the Universe as lover
you dare not be choosy—
you want it all!
And rightfully so,
to say yes to some of it
and no to the rest
means that you don’t
accept the whole Universe.
It means that you’ve
held yourself apart
from some precious
experience,
a joy hiding inside a lesson.
Scrub the toilet
with the same
excitement you feel
when you kiss
your beloved’s cheek.
Everything becomes joy
when the whole Universe
is your lover.

The Choice is Mine

Standard

Sources of inspiration coalesce,
sending me the same message
until it reaches in
and takes root.
Eventually
they’re all saying the same thing:
Open, grow, let it flow.
So I open.
I open.
I open more.
And the changes come slowly at first,
but then more quickly over time.
I see my responsibility
in opening to possibility
and how the only one ever
holding me back was, well,
ME.
Now, this, this is power:
realizing that the failure was mine,
but now so is the success.
And I get to choose.
