Change of Plans

sunriseMy husband and I were supposed to go to the beach this weekend to celebrate our anniversary…but then we had the dreaded “change of plans.” I had orchestrated the whole mini-vacation to my favorite destination but then he wasn’t feeling well, so we stayed home. I don’t deal well with this. I tried to “suck it up” and say I didn’t mind, but inside I was resentful and sad – it was such a beautiful day! But then I heard my higher self saying ‘don’t be so selfish, there will be another time to get to the beach’ etc.  We did manage to make the best of it (I did at least get outside and get some sun and take a walk.) And now today is a new day. I’ll be honest, I did wake up feeling regret about not going to the beach and getting away…and worry about work today and tomorrow. And then I heard Jesus’ words in my head:  “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matt 6:25-34) Just for today I can choose to be happy, joyous and free, no matter what my circumstances or the change of plans that might come my way (and no matter even that it’s Monday!) So, good morning – it’s a new day and I hope you and I make the most of it!
