Today, I chose to smile, and all at once,
things didn't look so bad.
Today, I shared with someone else what I have,
and a bit of hope ignited.
Today, I chose to sing a song in this toil of trouble,
and felt my heart grow light.
Today, I chose to walk an extra mile,
and the skies cleared up.
Today, I chose to try my best to work hard,
and long for nothing more.
And what had seemed like just weeds,
were actually flowers at my window.
Today, I chose to forgive a little more,
and complained a little less.
And in the giving of myself I forgot my weariness!
Today, I would make a choice different from before,
I found a new perspective, another part of me,
and the other side of the world.
Life is expanded.
Today is always a new day!
