I’ve been exploring the concept of choice lately. Choice plays such a huge role in our lives and often we tend forget about the power of choice until we’re faced with a difficult decision.
But, in truth, we make choices every moment of every day. Most of those choices we make unconsciously. And some of those unconscious choices are not in our best interest!
So how do we make more of our choices conscious? How do we make the difficult choices easier? And, perhaps most important, how do we fully live into the choices we make?
I’ve come up with two simple reminders that I use as affirmations whenever I find myself facing a difficult decision. Here they are:
- Embrace the truth that in each and every moment, I am at choice. No matter what the external circumstances seem to suggest, I am choosing my path in each and every moment. Resentment serves no one.
- Embrace the choices I make and have made. What a blessing to have the ability to choose in each and every moment. And what a gift to have multiple, beautiful, delicious options. Choose one and live fully into it. Regret serves no one.
