I am so happy that we live in a country that allows us to make our own choices in all aspects of our lives. We are so lucky that we can make choices based on our knowledge, thoughts, passions, hearts, and souls. I can’t even imagine what life would be like if we were not able to choose how we live, where we live, who we love, where we work, and what we do every day.
We have all looked back on a few of the choices we have made that might not have been the best decisions and maybe led us in a direction that felt like it was off our ultimate path. But, I happen to believe that even the choices that were not so good might have pointed us in the direction we are supposed to be.
I believe we are all equipped to make the right decisions and choices for ourselves, especially adults. As I continue to raise my children, I try to encourage them to make good choices and think things through before making decisions. I also know that I need to step back from time to time, so they learn to make their own choices, good or bad, to learn and grow. It is easy to jump into decisions quickly, but confidence comes with lessons learned.
Below are a few essential things to remember to ensure the very best results;
- Try your best to stay clear of other people's opinions to make your own decisions.
- Make your choices based on thinking them through and knowing the ultimate outcome.
- Encourage yourself with words of affirmation to accomplish your goals.
- Focus on the positive and know that you have a purpose and are uniquely designed.
- Listen to your heart and spend some time in prayer to ensure your direction.
- Be grateful every day for the gift of freedom to make your own choices.
As you continue your path to your best and most beautifulife, I encourage you to pause for just a moment to give thanks and gratitude for choosing for yourself. I also encourage you to look ahead to the choices that you will make for your future. Where do you ultimately want to live and who do you want to spend your time with? How can you make a difference, and who can you inspire to be better? How do you want your world to look, and what can you do to help make that happen? We have the power and the ability to design our lives exclusively the way we want them to be. My best advice is to choose wisely.
My affirmation for you this week is;
“I am grateful for the freedom to make my own decisions, and I will continue to be wise about my choices."
