There’s something really empowering about the fact that our life is made up of choices. That each and every day we get to choose to make what we want out of this life. To feel the good, or give into the bad. To step out on faith, or rest comfortably in what we already have. We have the choice to find the magic in every moment. Or to create it if it’s not there. We have the choice to make our lives remarkable, so why don’t we all choose it?
If at any given moment we get to choose how we react to a certain situation, why don’t we choose to see the good? To find the silver linings. When bad things happen and we’re faced with struggles, why do we choose to let it overcome us? Too often in life we feel like we don’t have a choice. Like the outcome is final. Like things are set in stone. The truth is, no decisions in this life come pre-made. The truth is, there’s always a choice. In the journeys we’re traveling, we always have the opportunity to choose a different direction. We always have the ability to course correct. So choose to embrace the unknown. To take the road less traveled. Or to create your own path completely.You get to decide to put one foot in front of the other. To find the adventure in every day. To make this life all that you want it to be. You have the ability to choose to change your life. It’s just up to you to do it.
At the end of the day, life comes down to the choices we make. To the times we went left instead of right, stayed when we should have left, and bit our tongue when we should have said more. It’s choosing to look back at those choices and being grateful that they happened. It’s choosing to see the lessons in each experience; choosing to see them as opportunities to learn. It’s the moments we define that become the defining moments of our lives. The times where we chose to pursue the things that make us happy, and to let go of the things that don’t. It’s the times where we look back and are thankful for the choices we made and the times we realize that maybe, just maybe we should have chose differently. So choose to see it differently now. To acknowledge that every choice we’ve made good or bad led us to where we are today and today, and every day after, we will always have the opportunity to choose again.
