“Life is a matter of choices, and every one you make, makes you…” – John C. Maxwell
We make thousands of choices every single day. You make the choice to wake up early or to sleep in. To exercise or take the day off. To work late or head home early. To get angry at your counterpart for disagreeing with you, or to respond with empathy and understanding.
They Shape Your Reality
The quality and trajectory of your life is a direct reflection and result of the choices you make. If you choose to consistently wake up 30 minutes earlier than usual and practice self-care, you might notice an increase in productivity and focus throughout the day. If you choose to exercise 3-4 times per week, you might notice an increase in energy and efficiency. If you choose to eat mostly clean for the week, you might notice clearer skin and an increase in mental well-being. Conversely, if you choose to consistently hit the snooze button, live a mostly sedentary lifestyle, and eat fast food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you will undoubtedly experience the negative side effects of those costly choices.
Choose to Align
We all have the power to choose how we live our lives. Every decision we make either contributes to or takes away from the quality of our lives. Pay close attention to each choice that you make. The shows you watch on TV, the music you listen to, the people you hang out with, and the food you consume all contribute to the energy you emit. What type of life do you want to create? Make the choices that align with what you intend to build for yourself today. Your future self will thank you for it!
That being said, let’s take a moment to cultivate gratitude for another day of breath and life! Nothing is promised, so enjoy today to its utmost capacity!
