The choices we make

There is nothing to worry about, unless we choose.

There is nothing to fear, unless we choose.

There is nothing to get done, unless we choose.

There is nothing to stress about, unless we choose.

We create all the choices in our life, every single moment.

We choose to listen to our thoughts or not, we choose the attitude we’ll have, we choose what to say, what to do, what we eat…all of it.

Critically, we choose all the internal reactions to all that happens externally and that is where we choose to suffer within or not.

Of course, when we are stuck within our thoughts and the drama, then it is difficult to see the wood for the trees. However, the more aware of the fact that we choose everything within us, the more able we are to step away from it.

The good news is, we can all start right now making different choices and change whatever we choose to change.

2.6 billion chances

Every unfolding moment, this second, is a new opportunity to do something different, if we feel we want to. If we are stuck, we can change it.

Over the course of a typical life, that is 2.6 billion opportunities to change something. Yet we feel ‘I’ve blown it, there’s no second chances!’…insane, eh?

Never stay stuck, ignore the fear of the mind, which we alone create if we choose to, and just start something new…now. Now is where everything happens and it is the eternal never ending present moment, the moment that our real life plays out and not in the endless thoughts of our mind and its fears.
