I Choose To Smile StillThe choice to smile and cry falls on our laps every day and sometimes the pain falls harder than we expect. Sadness can be a dense path, sometimes full of thorns that we have built ourselves with all kinds of bad thoughts. And these are the moments we can get help of friends who water our garden with love and caring feelings, which makes the thorns easier and soft to be plucked. But to get rid of them is a task that only we can do, nobody else.
Simple? Not always, but I refuse to let life get me down, if I let the unknown drives me crazy, then I will waste the time to live. I could sit here and complicate my life more, I could blame others and even that I have a reason to be down now, I prefer to be thankful and blessed for my life, trying to see grace in difficulty, sweet in the bitter. And I try to be around people who add more color to my special home: the heart.
There is no mystery, no magic wand. In the moments of fear, which I don’t have it now, it is important that I feel home within me. It is feeling the warmness in my own heart that I choose to smile still.
