the joy of simplicity– midnight musings.

Currently, it’s twenty seven minutes past midnight.

It’s freezing.

Ice is on the ground.

Snow fell a little under twenty four hours ago. I can’t see the green grass. They’re covered with a thin blanket of white.

My first day of spring semester classes is behind me. I survived the first of many long days.

Sometimes, you have to be thankful for the small joys.

Like your car not skidding on black ice.

Or the fact that the Starbucks line was short today and I got my coffee in a matter of minutes.

In every day, there is always good. Although not every day will be good, it’s your attitude that makes the difference.

 

It’s the little moments that pass you by, the little moments that secretly disappear when you’re not looking, that make up the days.

Will your day be good?

Or will your day be bad?

Choose joy and keep choosing it.

It’s thirty minutes past midnight and although I don’t know what today will bring, I know that if I choose to look for them, 

there are good moments hiding from me,

waiting to be found.

We simply have to choose joy and keep choosing it.
