Today, I chose to write about choices. Thank you for choosing to take a minute to read this. Good choice!
We don’t always realize how many different choices we have in certain situations. Our lives are usually made up of all the choices we make. Even when we choose to do nothing, that’s a choice. Some choices might be better than others, but regardless of the outcomes, we can choose to learn from our experiences then choose what to do next.
Sometimes we might find ourselves in undesirable circumstances that are bigger than all of us, and we might feel that there isn’t much we can do, but we always have different choices we can make. One thing that we can certainly choose is our attitude towards things. It’s up to us to choose how we think and how we react to situations.
We can choose to complain that rose bushes have thorns, or we can choose to rejoice that thorn bushes have roses. We can choose to hide from the rain and consider it “bad weather”, or we can choose to sing and dance joyfully in the rain. We can choose to be grateful for the good things we have, or we can choose to keep nagging about all the problems we have. We can even choose to recycle misery by creating something productive out of it, or we can choose to keep it consuming us silently.
We can regularly choose where to look and what to see. We are the ones who choose what we focus on. Whether we decide to see the garbage on the streets, or the sun up in the sky, that is our choice! Whatever we choose, it’s important to keep in mind that nothing is constant, and that we can always make new choices.
