Ever think of doing something that interests you? Ever had the desire to want to fulfill a goal or chase a dream? I’m sure we have all sat down one day and asked ourselves what do we want to be? Where do we see ourselves after so many years. Well, you know what it’s all about making that choice to want to fulfill that goal or chase that dream. Making choices is the bulk of our mind set. Everything we do is a choice. It’s something you choose to do. No one can pressure you into doing anything you don’t want to. Everyone has a mind of their own. Some people go through life, believing that things are the way they are because this is how it’s intended to be. This is not true. Things are the way they are because you choose for them to be that way. In order to change a situation or fix it, you are going to have to make a choice as to whether or not you want it changed or fixed. For example, an unhappy relationship. Things may have gone awry and you all have hit a sour patch. You know it needs to be fixed, but you aren’t sure what to do. Well, this is where choices come in. You can choose to fix it and repair your relationship. Or, you can choose to let it go and cut your losses. When making choices, you have be confident within yourself that you are making the right choice. Don’t make a choice that you know you will later regret, because again this was a choice you made.
Even when you find yourself in a bind, sit down and re-evaluate what caused you to get in that bind. Look back on your actions and see what choices you made. If it’s money, maybe you made the choice to go shopping instead of paying your bills. If it’s legal, maybe you made the choice to take an alternate route instead of going home like you were supposed to. If it’s family, maybe you made the choice to say or do something that drove a wedge between you all. You can’t go through life blaming everyone else for your mishaps or woes. You have to own up to the fact that you have a choice. A choice to make the right decision or the wrong decision. This is where a lot of people go wrong. Instead of saying “Oh if she wouldn’t have snitched on me I wouldn’t be in prison.” No if you hadn’t have made the choice to do what it took for you to go to prison, you wouldn’t be in prison. Instead of saying “He got me pregnant and don’t want to help me.” No you got yourself pregnant when you laid down without protection or birth control. Instead of saying “My mom put me out.” No your mom is showing you tough love, because you are choosing not be self-sufficient. Blaming people for the choices you make will keep you going in a complete 360 degrees. You’ll end up back in the very same situations you are trying to rid yourself of. You have to own up to the fact that everything is a choice. It’s up to you to decide which one you are going to make.
Remember, the only way you can change your situation is to own up to your choices.
