Today’s message is about deciding that you always have a choice in how you act or respond to what is going on around you


“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. You always have the choice.”

Dalai Lama

Last week we had the opportunity to vote for our federal government here in Canada. I feel it is important to vote and make my voice count. Countless men and women throughout history fought for that right and to me it is not only a way to honour them and what they did for us, but also a responsibility as a citizen of this great country. The entire process took me less than 5 minutes. I was thrilled as I had set aside an hour for the process. As I was leaving the polling station feeling very chipper and happy that I had fulfilled my civic duty  in record time. A gentlemen was leaving with me. I gave him a big smile and said, “That was fantastic, no wait and I am done, couldn’t have picked a better time to vote.” He grumbled some words I won’t repeat and said “I am sick of all this BS.”  I told him I was sorry he didn’t have a good experience and then he went on to complain that he was told he had to wait his turn and stand behind the line until the voter before him had finished and who did they think they were. I gave him a big smile again and wished him a better rest of his day and got in my car and drove off to deliver Meals on Wheels and share more sunshine and love with the world.

I was reminded by my angels to send this man some love as he was clearly not enjoying his day so far and to continue on sharing my smile with the world. We always have a choice on how we react or respond to others and I am thankful to be aware of the love I feel and can share with the others. It isn’t always easy to stay positive in a sometimes chaotic world, but that we always have a choice and I choose Love.

I love this song by Shawn Gallaway.  Sometime just watching it can shift me back to what is important and that I choose Love.

Your angel guidance for today is to remember that you can choose to be happy right now and that is truly all that you have, it is a choice.

Tons of love, Sharon and the Angels
