Can you believe we’re at the end of another month? We’re getting very close to the half way point of this year as well. How has your year gone? Do you need to be more agressive in the next 7 months? More loving? More caring? More considerate? More relationship oriented? More protective of your time? More productive? What will you focus on for the next 7 months?
As we contemplate those 7 months, not to mention tomorrow and next week, today I thought we’d talk about power. Power is something that we all have, and the majority of the time we either choose to use it or give it away. On rare occasions it will be taken from us, but that’s not the norm because usually even when it looks like someone is taking power away from us there’s still something we can do about it.
Where does our power ultimately come from? Our ability to make choices. You have the power to choose how you’re going to live your life: what you’re going to eat, what you’re going to buy, what you’re going to wear, and who you’re going to be with; these are all choices you make on a daily basis. We make bigger choices in our lives too, like who we marry, where we live, the spirituality we believe, and the careers we have.
There are some other powerful things in the world like love and nature, but ultimately it comes down to the power of choice that rules how our lives turn out. So with your power of choice what will you choose to do today?
