Life is held together by choices – one after the other, all shapes and sizes – right or wrong, it doesn’t matter, because life keeps unfolding and won’t wait around for us. If we sit still life could pass us by all together. It would be a nice belief, that all of life’s choices were made for us when we entered into this world. If this belief were true, we would all be exactly where we are supposed to be always. As we all know this is not the case, there are little seemingly insignificant choices and there are life altering choices in our paths every day that could change everything, every moment.
With this being said it is our responses that allows us to take ownership in making choices that are loving us back. There are so many examples I will keep it to a couple brief ones: 1- If you are a “yes person” and choose to always say yes to everything you are causing yourself stress when you become over booked. Try this complete sentence, “NO”. No explanation needed, but your response of “NO” is choosing to love yourself first, which means you are taking care of your physical and mental well-being. When you are at your best, you give your family and friends the best version of yourself. 2 – On a more life altering choice are you in a job/career that is slowly taking away your inner soul’s light to shine. Find a different job/career, because think about how many hours a day, week, month, and year you spend working this job/career. I’m not saying quit and have no income, I am saying always be looking and keeping that space open to a new opportunity that will allow your inner souls light to shine. If you are looking the universe knows you are choosing to keep that space open for an opportunity to be sent your way.
In the large picture, choose to love you always. Creating the life that you dream of is all about a million choices that come your way every day. Should I work out, should I eat healthy, should I get an appropriate amount of sleep, should I always respond to others with love and light or no response at all to a negative situation, etc., You get it! If you feel you made a wrong choice it is okay, forgive yourself and make a right choice next time. After all I am a strong believer we are all a work in progress in our lives and you all have this.
Life is a Journey my Friends, make it what you want it to be!
