The day that I got to know that life is about making a choice was among the scariest day of my life. I was made to believe that going with the flow was what I was supposed to do. I thought being told what to do and following the rules was all I have to do for the rest of my life. I never thought for once that I was the one making choices without me knowing. It’s crazy to think that all this time I was creating my own my life.
You always have a choice to make in life, whether you know it or not. Someone can tell you how to do things but it is your choice to take their advice or not. When we were young we were told that studying hard will give you good grades, well that was a choice. Some people never studied hard and they still passed. Every day we make choices in every area of our lives. You either choose to listen or you don’t, you either choose to succeed or you don’t, you either choose to be happy or you don’t. You see? That’s what I mean when I say “no choice no life”. The good thing about this though is you can measure your choices by looking at the end results. If the result is not what you wanted, then you can change the choices you make and reach for new ones.
Choices are never permanent unless you let them be. Have you ever heard someone say, “Well, I didn’t have a choice”. That is not true, you had or else you wouldn’t do what you did. I agree there are some situations that may make it hard for you to choose what to do, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a choice, you did! But it’s just easier to convince yourself that you didn’t have one. Knowing and accepting that you have a choice in every part of your life will make you aware that you are in control of your life. It’s amazing to know that you can always find help when you are not sure of the choices you are making. There are a lot of wise people out there and a lot of information on the choices you are making, why not use them. Don’t sweat yourself, use the heroes that you see fit on the choice you want to make. There are expat in every field and areas of life, you just have to make a choice to reach them and figure out what your final choice will be.
Everything that is happening in your life right now is a result of the choices you made whether you were aware of or not. Okay, you may say most of them were not your fault or you were forced to make them. I agree! I was once a victim of that too, but guess what, it’s never too late to take control and make your own choices, and actually making a choice is part of your life.
This life is yours, take control and make your own choices. Don’t allow other people to make choices for you. You are the only one who knows what choices will make you happy. So make a choice to make your own choices from today and see how good that will make you feel.
