Don't Lose Sight of Your Choices

Each choice you make takes you down a specific road. As you observe where you are in life, you can look back at the choices you've already made and realize how you got to where you are now. However, many people who are not present in their lives - who are not paying attention - are not aware of which choices took them to which place, if you ask them some years later. Being fully aware of yourself and your life is not a laughing matter.

Nevertheless, should you not be where you want to be, please be aware that what this post is about is not blame. Likewise, if you have no idea how you got to where you are, this is not about blaming you. I'm simply hoping to jolt you into awareness about yourself and your life.

Therefore, if you are not where you want to be, consider the choices you have made. For instance, how often have you chosen to regard your lack of good fortune or ease in gathering speed along your chosen road of life, as bad luck?

Or how often have you chosen to react with anger, with depression, with a low-energy mood to one situation or another in your life?

These are also choices you have made.

How often have you chosen to spend an extra 20 minutes in bed instead of working out or meditating or learning that new language or becoming skillful at the use of some software that might give you an advantage in your quest in life?

How often have you chosen to say to yourself this is how I am and I can't change it?

How often have you chose to begrudge another his/her good fortune, rather than rejoicing - truly rejoicing - on their behalf?

Every choice we make brings a specific energy into our lives. That energy in itself leads us to more choices that could increase that same energy. If it was not the best to begin with, it is therefore increased negatively. But at any part of the road we can choose to make other  - better - choices.

If you begin to keep your eye on your choices, to observe them, to be truly aware of them, and the intention that has brought them to life, you will be in a position to see clearly where your life would go into new directions if you changed those choices.
