A choice of how you choose to behave, to think, to react, what words to use or what next step to take.
Sometime it doesn't feel that way. Life can feel stuck, like there are no options. That is also just a choice, to see it in that way. There are always options.
Even in the darkest moment there is a choice of how you choose to take care of yourself, to be loving to yourself. You can choose to look for what the situation is teaching you, what lesson there is to learn.
Or of course you can choose to allow the darkness to take you down, to give into it, to wallow in negativity.
You choose every day how to spend your time, is it on activities that nourish you? That you enjoy? That give you what you need to feel good?
Or do you choose to block life out with forms of escapism like drinking to excess, drugs etc Activities that might feel fun at the time but bring you crashing down after.
You have the power within you to create your life, to choose how you feel, to choose your thoughts in any given moment.
To begin with it's a case of being aware of what you are saying to yourself. Noticing when you start to put yourself down, think negatively or behave in a damaging way to yourself and others.
Then ask yourself questions like:
- What would be more loving to myself, and others.
- How can I positively contribute to myself and others?
- What could I do to make a difference?
- How can I nourish myself for my highest good?
What if just for today you choose to feel good and to make others feel good to? If that was your only purpose for today?
