hi...

A little something's on my mind... and it's going to make it into my journal.

We are all of us rather unique... that's the way of things. I could go on and on about how much the same we are but that doesn't preclude the things that make us individuals. There is a great deal about each of us that is good and much that is ... less so. Be that as it may, none of us is worthy of a self proclaimed shroud of judgment. Set yourself up as an unsolicited purveyor of judgments and you risk a harsh judgment yourself. This may be a simple pill to swallow for a person so disposed and if that is the case... then fine. We all must live, if not with one another, most certainly with ourselves.

There is no end of things about life that I appreciate but none more so than the glorious right to make choices. I make them every day. Today I chose to not smoke. I also chose to write in my journal. I chose to read many of your journals today and others, for one reason or another, I did not. In the doing of those things I found myself considering why and how I make decisions to retain the friendships I have in journal land. In the end, the only sure reason I could settle on was "because I can." Maybe tomorrow will be different... maybe not. I'll see when the new day dawns. Whatever happens, I know of two guiding truths that will influence my tomorrows; a smile costs nothing and while love is easy, hate takes work.
