Weekly Wisdom

Choice is creation.

To choose is to create.

Through your choices you create your reality.
At every moment in your life you have a choice.

We can choose…
to focus on faults OR to be a benefit finder.

We can choose…
to look at what is not working or to look at what is working.

We can choose   . . .to take things for granted OR to appreciate the good.

We can choose   . . .
to perceive failure as a catastrophe OR as a learning opportunity. We don’t have a choice whether we fail at times, but we do have a choice of what we do with that failure. 

We can choose   . . .
to run away from challenges OR to courageously face challenges.

We can choose   . . .
to be cynical and sarcastic OR to be open and sincere.

We can choose   . . .
to overlook the potential OR to see the potential and cultivate it.

We can choose   . . .
to reject emotions OR to accept emotions.

We can choose   . . .
to be mean and dismissive OR to be nice and kind.

We can choose   . . .
to overlook life’s treasures inside and all around us OR to be mindful of the wonder and the miracle unfolding within and around us.

At every moment in your life you have a choice.
All these moments add up to a lifetime; choices add up to a life – – – your life.

What kind of life do you want for yourself? For those around you? 

To live the life you want you must first become mindful that you have a choice.
