C is for Choices
By Victoria J.Brown
Sometimes we are faced with difficulties in life that we have to either overcome or dwell upon. However, choosing to look at what you have rather than what you don’t can definitely overcome any difficulties.
But once you understand that life is a journey, and every stop is meant to be, you can choose to embrace it or fight against it.
If you are experiencing some hard times at the moment, depending on how you choose to think about these life events, will result in the next part of your journey.
This may be hard to comprehend if you feel as if you are stuck in some kind of rut or are facing some true life or health difficulties.
Let’s do a mini exercise.
Ask yourself these two questions …
- On a day to day basis do you feel as if you’re plodding through the mud?
- Do you look at other peoples’ lives, envy them and look at the bad in your own life?
If you answered yes to the above questions, here could lie the reasons behind the problems you are experiencing in your life.
Now ask yourself these two questions …
- Which part of your life do you feel is running quite smoothly? (One rule with this question – you can’t answer ‘nothing’ – find something! There will be something!)
- When was the last time you did something with LOVE for someone else?
Life is about making choices; to choose to see the good around us or choose to dwell upon which isn’t good. Sometimes we could dislike something so much in our life that it can take over our whole being. So much so they can’t see the goodness in their life. They choose to see the darkness.
What people don’t realise is unhappiness leads to more unhappiness.
It’s as simple as this: Your attitude + Your choices = Your Life
Now ask yourself another question …
Who do you CHOOSE to be?
Do you choose to be the person who focuses on everything that is wrong in the world?
Do you choose to be the person who focuses on all that is good?
Life is simple when you look at it simply! Life is beautiful! We must choose to see the beauty. Once you see the beauty … it all becomes clear.
