I posted today that I have joined the #Trust 30 which is a Writer’s Prompt initiative: http://ralphwaldoemerson.me/.
I plan, over the next few days, maybe 2 weeks, to catch up with the six prompts that I missed. I see that a few of those who began participating after the start date are doing the same; like Elizabeth at I Face the Sun, here on WordPress, seems to be doing.
I appreciate the thought provoking prompts, and I believe I am going to enjoy the community building that seems to be built in!
So…in an attempt to catch up…and to write more, here goes the catch up; in random order, as I am inspired and or find them…
This was Trust 30’s #2 Prompt:
Today by Liz Danzico
Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.

This is the sentence of the day, and most days, for me. It works on both the good, and the not so good, of my days.
I have a saying, that quite frankly drives my love mad: “Happiness is a personal choice! Choose it!” And this morning, like some mornings, I had to choose it.
No! Happiness did not greet me this morning with a steaming, rich cup of coffee! I had to get up on this damp, dank Jersey Shore morning and hit the GO! button on the machine, all by myself. Thus beginning my day and the task of waking up the “Anti-Morning” love of my life.
And I hear in my head….this is the morning the Lord has made…
and I say…I will rejoice in it.
That rejoicing consisted of petting my dachshunds, as they happily greeted the groggy, where is the coffee me. Calling out lovingly (a choice) to my hubby, that it was time to get up. Opening my yogurt while I booted the lap top and began to read my devotional e-mails…
I rejoice each morning by choosing to spend quality time with God, during the “Good Morning Wake Up” hour, here in Hutchland…and for the most part I am Glad in it.
I enjoy a good life, regardless of how I may greet and spend each day, with blessings abundant.
Thinking Positive On Purpose sets a certain tone to one’s day to day living. It causes one to see that life does what life does, yet we can, we must CHOOSE to enjoy the experiences, the good and the challenging, for what we gain in them, moment to moment.
One sentence today…This is the day the Lord has made…I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!
