Everyday we have a choice in what we do, how we think, how we behave. Sometimes those choices we make are good, sometimes they are bad. At times we get caught up in the pity party and we start making bad decisions that can end up with negative results. What does it take to recover from that? I always hear how times are tough, but I believe it is what you make of it.
I have never been happier. I have been making a lot of choices lately with in my life. Cutting out the negative, keeping the positive and hopefully pushing the optimism on others. So many people choose to reflect on the negative. Turn on the news any given night. This world is in a bad place right now. We can make the choice to change that. We can make better choices to better ourselves, to better those around us and to better the life we lead and the world we live in.
There are so many traps to fall into. Drugs, Alcohol, Crime, Retail Therapy (oh yea, that used to be my number one). We let these things control us, and they can lead to us making bad choices. So the question is how to make the choice to change? Does something have to happen first, or can we do it on our own?
You might look at my life and think it is all happy and perfect. But it’s not. There is a lot in my life that I would love to change. Each day I continue to make choices for the betterment of myself and those around me. Lately I may be viewed as selfish because I do make more time for me, but I think it’s just self development, time with myself that I rarely have taken in the past. I am finding the person that I am supposed to be, and I am making changes to move towards the person I was on this earth to be.
Don’t let anyone makes choices for you. Make choices to better your own life. If you don’t like your life the way it is, be your own voice of change. Set out to create the life you want.
