The Choices We Make Create the Life We Live

I wanted to share a quote from a book called The Rythm of Life by Matthew Kelly.

“Everything is a Choice. This is life’s greatest truth and its hardest lesson. It is a great truth because it reminds us of our power. Not power over others, but the often untapped power to be ourselves and to live the life we have imagined.”

He goes on to say that it’s a hard lesson because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now.

That may be frightening to some of us as we might not like some of the things we see when we look into the mirror of our lives.

For others, however, it is empowering. It is empowering because you know that you are only a choice away from changing your path and moving in an entirely new direction.

What will your life look like 6 months from now? 1 year from now? 10 years from now?

What choices will you make? What will you eat? Who will you spend time with? Will you spend your time building or breaking down?

What career decisions will you make? How will you interact with your team members at work?

What will you feel? Will you feel anger? Resentment? Love? Or gratitude? Who will you love?

It’s a great time to reflect on your choices.

I choose to create my life. 2012 will be my best year yet.
