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.

Something that will never happen in a time that isn’t real

Nothing turns out like we imagine it will, by default, our mind and its ego conjure up the worst possible outcome…sometimes, almost quite unimaginable!

If life turned out as we imagine, firstly, what would the point be, as the uncertainty of life is what makes it special and secondly, life would be miserable, as we imagine the future to be challenging.

What if we decided not to waste our energy on predicting something we can’t predict as the future isn’t real beyond our mind? What if we decided to focus our energies on enjoy this moment now, the only time that we are actually alive? What if we stopped creating our own suffering worrying about something that will never happen in a time that isn’t real?

Perhaps, life would be more enjoyable, worth a try maybe?
