The choices you make

Many of the things that bring you down are of your own choosing. You choose them because you assume there’s nothing better available to you, but there always is something better.

Many of the things that bring you down are just old habits that you’ve never managed to break. You assume they are a permanent part of you, but they are not.

Sure it takes some effort to find and make better choices. Yet those choices are indeed there, and once you begin to find a few, a whole lot more will suddenly pop into view.

Yes, it takes time and commitment to overcome a destructive habit. Once you do it, though, you’ll feel like you can take on just about any challenge, and you’ll be right.

Think about who you really are, and what you truly want to do with your life. Let your best vision of who you are, and of who you can be, guide the choices that you make every moment.

Life can be easy, haphazard and empty, or it can be focused, directed and full. The choices you make will make you who you choose to be.
