Choice is a gift, but I think sometimes it’s one that we shun because we forget we have it in our back pocket.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes in life I feel like I have no choice but to do whatever is expected of me. I will figuratively move mountains to help, to accomplish or to do what needs to be done, even when I don’t want to even think about putting one more thing on my list to do.
But we have a choice, even when we feel like we are backed into a corner with no exit sign nearby. We can choose to comply or to bend or to not.
On the other hand, I think we also get bogged down with seeing life from only one side of the track or perspective and yet, there’s a whole other view which we can choose to look at or even better, choose to be the observer and look at the entire scenario, like the producer of a play. Instead of being one of the characters in your life play, we can look with fresh eyes at the whole scene and get a better perspective. Be the audience or the producer instead of the character, bound by her leading assigned role.
I can hear you now, it’s not that easy Pollyanna.
But yes, it is, dear friends. You have the gift of choice at every moment of every day. Do you realize how many unconscious decisions we make in a day? What if we were to consciously choose from the producer’s point of view instead of our own limited point of view? Do you think we’d choose the same decisions? I’m thinking yes, sometimes and no, sometimes not.
Have you ever pondered that we have the gift of choice that we don’t always utilize? Can you think of any situation when you could have used your gift of choice with free reign and maybe had a better outcome?
Just another thought to ponder today. Share below what you think!
