Is it any of my business what you choose? Is it any of your business what I choose? All in all its just a choice. You can continually distract yourself with other peoples lives taking the focus off your own, knowing what doesn’t work for them, all the while not entirely sure what works for you. You are so busy looking at the mess everyone else is making you are not making a whole lot of anything and duplicating others apparent successes as that is the one sure way to have it all!
Where are you in all of this? Are you living the life you truly desire, taking a chance on something or living in fear of choosing something greater as you have measured up how everyone else is doing with their choices in life?
I will let you into a secret. Choice creates!
Throughout my life I read situations really well. I could see pretty much everything whether I liked it or not. Yes I did not always make the brightest decisions, with the most positive outcomes. Some of them were even made by how other people did it because I did not always trust myself, my way would have been so different! A lot of people believe that everyone else has to be right, there is a fool proof way to live happy here, make the right decisions, finally make it and have it all to eventually get all of it right! The whole time judging the way you would truly live your life as wrong.
What if you could never make a mistake? A lot of us choose to live in fear that we might get it wrong, is that truly living? So what if every choice you made gave you an awareness about something? What if that was a gift and you get to choose again. You can choose the same thing or something different - you are never bound to that one choice forever.
For me this world just did not work, it was so awkward trying to do it just like everyone else was and not realising I had the freedom to make my own choices my own way and see what that would create for me. We live in such doubt of ourselves not realising that most people long for that freedom to choose what it is they would like to create.
The freedom comes from you, no one will grant this to you and no one will tell you what you are now free to do. Its in making a choice you get to see what gets created in your life. The gift is you have the freedom always to choose something different if you wish to.
You were born free! Its only ever a choice away.
