I don't have much to say today other than documenting a little something I'm proud of.
Last night, while Chas was doing his fantasy baseball draft (for three hours- what!?), I was trying to find ways to entertain myself for the evening.
In my boredom, I remembered that we own a TV and decided to turn it on to see if there was anything worth watching.
This almost never happens.
I watched the last half of The Voice.
And then a show came on that I've been watching on Hulu.
In my opinion, Smash was good at first. But then, over the last few episodes, the show has gotten progressively more...trashy. So much drama, so much unhappiness. Each week, as I go to watch it, I tell myself that this time will be better. But it's not. And all I'm left with is a gross, dark feeling.
Last week, I turned it off early and made a promise to myself and Heavenly Father that I was done. I was no longer going to allow that junk into my home, into my mind.
So back to last night and my boredom and need for a time-filler.
It was embarrassingly difficult, but I turned off the TV.
I chose the right.
It felt good and I rewarded my good choice with some ice cream and a hot bath.
But not before I marched triumphantly around the living room singing "Choose the Right!"
It's a small, silly thing but I think lots of small, good decisions can add up to a whole lot of integrity.
