Life is all about choice.
Choosing your own adventure.
For in any given moment, you have complete choice.
If you don’t like what you’ve chosen, choose again.
Sometimes the option, is in the physical realm. You can literally choose to move yourself from one place to another.
Sometimes the option is of the mind. For one reason or another you are not (yet?) able to physically move. You still however, have full choice over what you choose to think and how you choose to feel, respond, react (if you must), interact, heal, rest, play and so forth, in any given situation.
Please remember I’m talking in everyday, generalised terms here. There are definitely exceptions to the rule. That being said, there are some remarkable people on, or of this Earth, whom have made some extraordinary choices in their life, using the strength of the mind only, when the body was not capable of choosing another option.
People such as Nelson Mandela and Viktor Frankl, to name a couple.
You and me, everyday people, we have great freedom in our choices.
Don’t like where you live.
You can choose to move somewhere else.
It may not be easy; it can however be done.
Don’t like how you feel.
You can choose to change that too.
Again, it may not be easy; it can however be done.
Don’t like what you see.
Don’t like what you hear.
Don’t like what you smell.
Don’t like the taste of something.
Don’t like what you’re sensing.
Don’t like cold weather.
Don’t like hot weather.
Don’t like your job.
Don’t like confrontation.
Don’t like having a chronic illness.
Don’t like change.
Don’t like the rules.
Don’t like how the government runs this country.
Don’t like the inequality either.
Don’t like your lot in life.
Choose to do something about it.
Or choose not to.
The choice is completely yours.
There. Is. Choice. In. Everything.
Change your choices.
Do or do not – you choose.
One bad choice does not have to be the be all and end all.
Neither does several.
Keep choosing again, until you find a fit that matches who you choose to be and how you choose to show up in this world.
Snuggle in, get cosy, enjoy your choices.
Choose one choice after another.
You can choice to be a victim, a bully, a hero (your hero), an advocate to bring about significant change to the world, a student, a teacher, mean, kind, a friend or foe.
You can choose to live in fear.
You can choose to run away and hide.
You can choose to carry your baggage around with you.
You can choose to repeat patterns that don’t serve you or those around you.
You can choose to let go of all your conditioning.
You can choose to take responsibility for yourself and your life.
You can choose to be your own person.
You can choose to forgive.
You can choose to empower, inspire, create, re-create.
You can choose to be rich or poor.
You can choose to be sick or healthy.
You can choose love.
You can choose gratitude.
You can choose to love yourself.
You can choose to be grateful for who and how you be.
You can choose to be a leader, a follower or an equal.
No-one and no-thing can stop you, if you so choose.
You can choose to surrender.
You can choose to be fully with it being exactly as it is.
You can choose whether something is good, bad, light, dark, empowering, disempowering, etc., regardless of what anyone else thinks, says or does.
You can choose to grow or shrink, in the light and/or the dark.
You can choose to wake up to a brand new day, with brand new possibilities.
It. Is. Your. Choice.
If not, choose again.
There are gifts to be found in every situation, every interaction.
It’s your choice whether you choose to see them and receive them, or not.
Our choices – that’s our power, that’s our quality of life.
For you choose your meaning.
I choose my meaning.
