Life Just Doesn’t Happen

Life is a series of choices we make along the journey in growing.  Every choice we make moves us in a direction which is a specific path set in motion from our choices.  We must become better at making choices in order to experience better outcomes in life.   Chew on this thought for a moment, making choices is one of the most performed activities we engage in every day.  If so, why are there so many people making bad choices in as an adult? 

I suppose it’s by habit we make bad choices or perhaps the lack of common sense.  In any event, if you are not moving in the direction you thought you would be moving in.  Make the conscious decision to change course, change direction and get back on track so you may arrive at your intended destination.

Did you know, the choices you make can become a foundation for which to build upon to live better in the days, months, and years to come?  Your everyday choices can undeniably take you to the brink of poverty or take you to the heights of success you have yet to imagine?

I, for one, am not a professional at making choices.  Over the years I have to make better choices in my life and continue to practice conscience decision making because the choices that we make as individuals we still have to be cognizant of decisions, we make that will affect those around us.

I believe our habits and choices intertwine seamlessly together.  You make a choice to do something and make a habit out of it.  Whether it be conscience or unknowingly on auto-pilot, (habit.)  Let’s say you go to work every morning.  Some people drive the same route every morning regardless of traffic oblivious to a more efficient route of travel.  We are creatures of habit, knowing this is true, wouldn’t it make sense to consciously choose to create better habits. 

Improve your choice making to make better habits that will ultimately change your life for the better. Wow!  Is it really that simple?  Yes!  However, we must be willing to make a better choice and have a reason to create a better habit.  What are some habits you can do without in your life?  What are some areas in your life you can improve upon? What behaviors can you change right now that will improve your life in the years to come?

Let me ask you this?  Have you ever been on the outs with any of your family members?  What decisions caused this?  What choices have you made or they made that made your relationship estranged? Have they changed for the better, or you changed for the better and the relationship is still estranged?  By choice, you or the other person have decided to keep things estranged or distant.  Time changes, people change, circumstances change, whether for good or bad.  It all boils down to the choices we make and continue to make that will keep things estranged, distant, bad, or good, and maybe even great.  It’s choice, nothing more.  A simple choice.

I talk from experience, what kept me from reaching out to estranged family members is the fear of being rejected, criticized, ostracized, or feeling ashamed.  However, I had to put all of that aside and realized, all those things are feelings I would experience if it were to come to pass.  But I would have never known the truth of an outcome had I not made the conscious decision, the choice to reconcile and help repair the damaged relationship.  I imagined something that I didn’t even feel, instead, experience the joy of repairing a wonderful relationship that has endured the test of time.  What about you?
