I Have Choices…
As a young teenager and as a young adult, I never felt like I had choices. I often felt trapped in a life I didn’t want. I didn’t think I could pursue my dreams. I didn’t believe I deserved the chance to achieve goals. Boy, was I wrong! Wink, wink!!!
I remember the first time I was told about having choices. I didn’t believe my friend when she told me I could choose to be happy. I thought they were lying to me when friends of friends told me I could choose peace in the midst of chaos. I thought they thought I was a fool! In reality, they were not pulling my leg.
The truth is: they were right! I’ve practiced making choices every day. I’m getting better at it all the time. Progress is a good thing. I am able to consciously choose to pause before responding. I can choose to hold peace in my heart when everything around me appears to be falling apart. I have choices.
I want to be clear about this…it is a simple suggestion but it is not easy to do. That’s why it takes some time to practice this technique on a regular basis in order to see improvement. I still have days when I want to react first, choose later. I’ll bet there are a few of you out there who can relate to that.
The good news is that this technique helps. I’m all about finding the techniques that enhance my daily life experience. I’m also all about sharing these reminders for everyone to ponder.
Hope you have a magnificent week. Remember to enjoy making new choices.
In Love and Light,
