Almost everything in life involves a choice, doesn't it? Coffee or tea. Water or soda. A suit or dress or jogging pants.
A salad or a box of Ho Ho's for lunch. #SomeDaysYouNeedTheHoHos
Those surface options aside, there are a plethora of others (and of much greater significance) we face daily...if not hourly, am I right? Things such as:
To be positive or negative.
To be happy or sad.
To work hard ... or um, not.
To embrace and appreciate every single day as a new opportunity and a genuine blessing... or to squander it away with pessimism and whining.
It all depends on your perspective. And the only way you can start the day on top of the world is to place yourself there, period.
You know what the right answer is ... so, are you going to pick it or what?

Jn 1:14ab R. Alleluia, alleluia. The Word of God became flesh and made his dwelling among us; and we saw his glory. Gospel Lk 1:26-38 The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you." But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his Kingdom there will be no end." But Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?" And the angel said to her in reply,"The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, Elizabeth, your relative, has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren; for nothing will be impossible for God." Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." Then the angel departed from her.
