You have a super power, and that is, your choice. The choice is yours in every situation you encounter. This is another mommy gem I tell my kids consistently. You have a choice. Now depending on what choice you make, the consequences or outcome can be drastically different.
The power you have in choice begins with the mind. OPEN YOUR MIND FOR UNDERSTANDING You have the choice to walk away from a job or career. The choice is yours to stay in a relationship. We have choices on where we want to live. The choice is ours to make on what we eat. However, with any of the above, we can put ourselves in a financial bind if we don’t have a back up plan. On the other hand, if we leave a relationship we have to be ready to have lonely times. Our lifestyle and how we live depends on where we choose to live and what we have access to. The food choices we make can cause health problems or increase our energy.
In the meantime, we have a choice to be sad. It’s a choice we made to dwell on what someone said. We can’t change what they said but we can choose to think about we say about ourselves. We can choose to do something that makes up happy, instead of thinking about the dark. It doesn’t mean those situations are insignificant. But making the choice to choose better, allows you to go through the dark to get to the light.
We have a choice to hold a grudge or forgive. You can forgive, free yourself, and them. You have a choice to not participate if you don’t want to. The choice is yours to say “yes” or “no”. How we handle conflict and arguments is a choice. The language and words we speak to ourselves and others are important. Furthermore, the choice to apologize is ours. Just letting things go and be, is a choice. JUST LET IT GO
”I have to do this.”
“I have to stay.”
”There is no other option or choice.”
”What else am I going to do?”
We’ve all said this in some fashion at one point in time. But the reality is, you have a power called choice. Yes, if you make a certain choice in one direction, the hill to climb may seem steep. However, if the choice was there and the opportunity, then you have everything you need to climb that steep hill. You will not be led to a decision or choice that doesn’t serve you good.
So the next time you find yourself stuck, remember you have a choice. It’s your super power. No one can make you do anything. You have the power to change the narrative, course of your life, and your story. The only person that can write our story is us.
We can make our lives better and easier, with knowing we have a choice. Making the choice that is best for your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing will always lead you to being better. The healthier we are, the more we’ll be able to serve others.
Be you so you can be free.
