The simplest details

Ren Allen, in part of a response to someone who was defending not wanting to be joyful all the time:
"We have the ability to choose gratefulness in any situation. For me, this has been life changing, though I still have a long ways to go! And I have tried very hard to take the words 'have to' out of my vocabulary. Some of you may feel it's just semantics, but it's empowering to see everything I do as a choice.

"When I'm getting ready for work I have caught myself saying "I have to get to work now" and stopped myself, saying " I CHOOSE to go to work and I need to be there soon." Simple? Perhaps. But sometimes the simplest details lead to more mindful living. The richness of abundant living is in the details."

  1. You are so right! Making that little twist in our perspective can really change how we view our freedom. And how we view our freedom has a direct connection to our joy.

    Wonderful post.
