A Choice Is A Choice

Not making a choice is a choice.

Letting things just happen in your life is a choice.
Not putting your definition of success into writing is
a choice. Accepting less than what you deserve, based
upon your effort, OR, lack of effort to achieve is your
choice. The list is endless.We are all constantly presented
with choices every day,we make hundreds of them. You can
choose to be someone who make things happen, or someone who
watch things happen, OR, you can choose to let things happen.
To me thats no choice BUT, it IS your choice!

At times, the only choice you may have is to choose your
attitude and how you will respond to the happenings around
you. To choose your attitude and how you'll respond to how you feel.
These choices are powerful because they allow you the
power to stay in control of our internal thoughts even if
you cannot control the external circumstances. So making
choices must be a conscious response.

Making choices, and being mindful of your choices, is
important because it helps you remember that you are the
only one responsible for the outcome of your actions. By
taking responsibility for making your own choices, with a
positive attitude in tow, you remove yourself from the role
of victim. How about that?
Now here are a few choices I've made

- To put a smile on my face no matter how I'm feeling on the inside.

- To be the best on my job and in whatever I do.

- To be the best Christian on earth.

- To be a real lady; cool, calm and collected.

- To be focused and pursue my goals in life with everything in me.

- To make sure I marry for love.

- To make honesty my best policy.

- To be a success in life.


What are your own choices? come on, make the choice to go grab yourself
a whole bunch of sunrises of opportunity!

I have made a choice to try and live my life the best I can, not to have any regrets from my past mistakes but to learn from them and alos to bring a smile on someones face when ever I can.
