26 Songs of Christmas – Joy To The World

Today is a happy one. Yes I am still on a writing deadline. No I have not finished my shopping. No we haven’t gotten our first snow yet. Yes I am completely sober.  There’s still plenty to worry about and I will.  It’s my nature to work and fight and obsess, but I am working harder to also be someone who reflects, and praises, and gives thanks.

So I am making a conscious effort to say I am thankful to have my family safe and healthy and together. I am thankful for a great yoga class.  I am thankful for food in my fridge.  I am thankful for friends who bring cookies.  I am thankful there’s only two days left until Star Wars come out.  I am thankful to have a new book out with awesome friends and authors like Melissa Brayden and Karis Walsh.

Sure there are still things to fear.  There are still things to weep over.  There are forces and ideologies we must fight.  And I will, but I believe refusing to surrender to darkness is part of that fight.

Today I choose joy.

Joy to the world.
