I have a passion about choice. We choose what we want to do. Our gift of choice is a pretty significant passion for me. Does it mean I always make sure I choose the right choice, heavens no. I screw up all the time. But that is okay, recognize it and move forward right?!
Let me share some of my passion about why we need to choose to better ourselves. This may rub you the wrong way, if it does, I would highly suggest taking an inward look at yourself. You may just find that needed desire to start at this moment NOT SETTLING.
We all know people who aren't happy, but refuse to change. We all know people that have settled for the place they are currently at in this life. They aren't living they are sedentary . Going through each days routines, like yesterday. They complain, but do nothing to change what they are complaining about. Or maybe they don't complain, but their choices to not seek their better selves keeps them stagnant. Where they are at today is no different then the place they were at a month ago, 6 months ago, even a year ago. There is so much more to this life then settling and being stagnant. So so so much more. (If you can look back 6 months and not see any growth or change for the better in yourself, you might want to reevaluate) The problem with living stagnant, it really doesn't exist. Either you are choosing to move forward or you are moving backwards. There isn't such thing as standing still. We are either moving forward, or we are slowly descending backwards.
I struggle with having a tolerance for those who choose to just settle. It takes the LIVING part out of life. WE ALL HAVE IMPERFECTIONS. Did I say that loud enough! WE ALL HAVE IMPERFECTIONS. For me I am currently working on allowing myself to be vulnerable. This is not easy for me. I have a lot of my blueprint connected to this. But I am working on it. It is helping my relationship with my husband be stronger. The positive benefits so out weight the negative. Because there is negative, it is hard! And sometimes painful. It would be easier at times to just say forget it, I am okay living this way, I am done. But who does that hurt? It hurts me number one, because I am choosing to limit my progression. And it hurts my relationship with my husband; because I am refusing to really let him in and see me, because I won't let my walls down. I am in my box. (that is a whole other blog post) IF YOU THINK YOUR CHOICES ONLY AFFECT YOU, YOU ARE LYING TO YOURSELF. Our choices affect EVERYONE around us! If you have allowed your imperfections to keep you from LIVING and enjoying all the wonderful aspects of this life, then you are affecting all those around you. It is just what it is. When my children are going through a struggle, I feel it. When my children make a bad choice, I feel it. When my children are celebrating something joyful, I feel it. These same scenarios work with my husband. It affects me whether positive or negative. Just like ANY choice I make in my life, affects them and my husband, whether positive or negative. You cannot take away the chain reaction. The minute you let, "its my life I will live the way I want" be your motto, you are seriously hurting many loved ones around you. And it doesn't have to be some big grand event or decisions. It's often the little things that seem to be felt the most.
So lets work on NOT settling! Let's remember we're here to enjoy life! There is so much LIFE to enjoy! Get out and see the world! LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TO GIVE YOURSELF THE BEST THAT IS IN YOU! This will bless not just your life, but all of those around you. Use your energy for the positive and just pick 1 thing right now that you want to strengthen about yourself! Go ahead....DO IT!
