Each day presents new opportunities
to change, make different decisions,
see possibilities and blessings rather
thinking only of trials and challenges.
How can I grasp, see more clearly
the lessons to be learned each day,
each hour, each minute of now
instead yearning for something better?
Expectations trap me again, enticing
me with their impossible promises
while reality's reasoning sways me
to see more clearly without glasses.
I hold the key to my attitude toward
my life's direction-positive or pessimistic.
I will choose this day to embrace
all that is and not just wish for more.
