I am a soul having a human experience… What kind of experience do I want to have?
First choice to make right here!
Do I want to live a life of meaning or just glide through a life that is fairly FINE?
Another choice to make!
We move away from making choices because we prefer to believe that we are DESTINED to live in a certain way, to look a certain way or simply to behave in a certain way.
Having a choice means taking responsibility; responsibility for who you are as a person, who you are as a soul living in this human body.
You didn’t yell because that person cut you off with his car, you yelled because YOU CHOSE TO! That was all you!
There is a quote that I LOVE, and it says:
Between the stimulus and the reaction, there is a space. This is where your freedom lies.” -Viktor E. Frankl
If you overeat, it’s not because your mom cooks unhealthy food and that’s all you find when you get home. You CHOSE to eat that! There were ten other choices you could’ve made. Cook for yourself, order from a healthy restaurant, eat a very small portion, and many many others.
The beauty of choice is that it’s EXTREMELY POWERFUL to help us get whatever we want in life, but the thing is it comes with a price. The price of self-responsibility.
Are you ready to be responsible for your own choices?
I bet you jumped in with a YES! OF COURSE I AM!
But I want you to pause, take a deep breath and let me ask you again:
Are you ready to take full responsibility for your choices?
Are you ready to admit that you are where you are today because of your choices? Are you ready to be fully honest with yourself?
Whatever answer comes to mind, let’s tap ourselves on the back for being honest, for trying the best we can so far. I mean it’s not like anyone taught us this at school or at home for that matter.
We were raised to believe that we are the side note of our life situations, of our circumstances, never the creators of our own life.
Well, it’s never too late to start. You have already taken the first step by claiming responsibility over your choices in life.
NOW IS THE TIME TO PRACTICE THE POWER OF CHOICE.
This is done simply and merely by staying aware of every choice you make and asking yourself: is this coming out of love or fear? Does this serve me or does it disempower me? How will I feel after making this choice, happy with myself or not so much? Will this bring me closer to what I want or not?
Keep an open eye and start watching your choices closely.
Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.
Peace & Love,

My journey of change started with a conscious decision to question my beliefs, to give myself my utmost attention, to love myself fully and to grow mind, body, and spirit.
