Will We Stay the Same, Or Will We Grow?
I did not always know I had a choice but now I do.
Before I understood this, I didn't really think I had a choice because I was not aware of it.
And what we are not aware of does not exist to us.
Now, I understand that in each moment I have a choice.
I can choose to stay as I am, or if necessary I can make a gentle shift to a new way of being.
In some moments, when I feel overwhelmed or stressed, I may momentarily forget that I have a choice.
Though, the more I practice awareness and being a witness to my thoughts, habits, reactions, and manifested reality, the more I learn to remember,
Life is always a choice.
I may not always know what to do but I have the choice to reach out and ask for help.
Sometimes things might feel like a bit much, but I have the choice to step back, take a deep breath, and reassess.
I can choose to follow every thought train in my mind or slow down and be objectively aware of the thoughts I am thinking and how they are influencing what I am feeling.
In each moment I get to decide, will I move forward with the same patterns, behaviors, and thoughts, or is it time to make a shift?
The more aware I become, the more I notice the choice,
The more I choose to shift, the more I choose to grow.
In this moment, what choice are you making?
