My mother was in hospital this week to get her left knee replaced. It was a whirlwind tour: Surgery late Wednesday afternoon and back at home less than 48 hours later. She’s in pain but things seem to be going well.
While trying to escape the maze of the hospital, I stumbled into a hallway, crowned with a sign which read: “I Deserve the Colour of Joy.”
Wikipedia poetically defines color as a “characteristic of human visual perception.” Joy, too, is about perception. If we choose to see the best in the world, our brains re-wire themselves to be more positive. When we complain, or get scared or focus on the negative, our brains create synapses that make us more attuned to these negative forces.
So make a conscious choice today to choose joy.
You deserve it.
