Great one liners that clearly tell the truth, sometimes hit you right in the head in the blink of an eye. This was one of them. I just happened to be inspired by a Note from the Universe, telling me to think of everything in terms of me just ‘getting closer, cooler, hotter, better, ‘badder’, and more awesome than before’. It certainly put a smile on my face 🙂 And it also got me thinking of where I could apply that.
Failed attempts, I-never-got-around-to-doing-them things, each mistake, each slip up, each ‘I shouldn’t have!’, and each disappointment…in short wherever I perceived myself to have fallen short somehow…I can choose a new way to think about it. A way that makes me feel empowered, and bright, and powerful. cuz that baby is how I wanna feel 😀
I can choose to be disheartened by my repeated, not-making-any progress tries at something or instead I can pat myself on the back for being so dedicated, smile, admit cheerfully this ain’t working and figure out a new strategy.
I can choose to cringe every time I remember a mistake I made or think of an instance which I am not proud of <like being rude to someone time and again for no reason> or I can take a deep breath, stop for a while, smile, see the lesson, and add it to my life as an inspiring lesson.
I can choose to curse those habits of mine that get me nowhere <for eg. deep and sometimes very-much- over thinking> or I can choose to own this trait of mine, see the other, not-very-often-noticed good side of it, smile, and then channel this habit into creating better, bigger, and empowering things <like an inspiring piece that uplifts me and anyone who reads it>
I can choose to compare myself to where the whole world ‘seems’ to be- better, smarter, more beautiful than me. Or I can choose to honor myself for once, see what I have and how far I have come, change my thoughts about myself, and smile 🙂
I can choose to moan and complain about the petty things that went wrong today which I won’t remember a week from now. Or I can choose to notice and say ‘thank u’ for all the good things that did go right- awesome even and then smile some more <thank you so much for a post that I am enjoying writing and sharing 😀 >
I can choose to dismiss my talents and gifts by never taking time to find out what they are and then bringing them to life. Or I can choose to see the value in me, the genius I possess, and be brave and willing enough to nurture them, smile and make them a part of my daily life.
I can choose to add more negativity to the world by cribbing and moaning about all the negativity that’s there already. Or I can choose to create new love, more love, smile, and add my own sunshine to the world. Leave things better than I found them. Be the love that I wish to see and feel.
I can choose to be a force of fear, or one of love- in my own life and others.
The choice is always up to me. What I choose from there on, shapes the thoughts I think, I actions I take, the things I do, and ultimately, the life I create for myself.
I choose LOVE. I always want to choose love. Even when it seems hard. Even when fear or hate seem the easier path. Even when I am challenged beyond my comfort zone.
I want Love to be the queen of my days. So it only makes sense to make choices that favor this desire of mine.
I hope you’ll make the same choice in your life- howsoever that looks for you.
Peace and love to you always 🙂
Now what will you choose today?
