Life is dictated by the choices we have available to us and the choices we decide to make.
To put it simply we all have a past, our current decisions dictate our present, yet you are the only one who has the ability to choose what your future looks like.
Let’s break it down.
We all have a past, right? Whether this past is good or not so good, that’s who we were, that’s who we chose to be. But, that is not a reflection of who we are today.
The world spins around the sun in 365 days, we have 4 seasons, 12 months, 7 days in a week and 24 hours in a day. We are not the same as when we were born, we can choose to be different every day we wake up.
Our current choices are what frames our present. These are our day to day variables that contribute to how we choose to live our present life. To make one thing clear. Each and every single individual is different in their own beautiful and unique way. The human species is incredible in the diversity between the billions of people that live on this planet. Every day, every step we take, every minuscule decision we make, are all the building blocks of where our paths lead. That’s just the beauty of life.
You, and let me repeat once again, you, and you only, are the only one who has full control of where you go and what your future looks like. External factors act as an influence, but you are ultimately the judge Judy of your life, and you make the final call.
Life offers no guarantee. That sunny day you were told about, might pour with rain. That shortcut you took to work might be blocked off. You’ll take streets that are smooth, and you’ll take rocky ones. Take a risk, make a decision, make that decision for you. Your decisions sculpt your experiences, eliminate your ability to pass on the blame. If you want something, go get it, don’t allow someone else to make a decision or hold you back. Like I said before, you are the only one who possesses the ability to choose what your future looks like.
Some days are tougher than others, and that I can say is inevitable. There will be days you sit back and question you’re ‘why’s’, the reason behind what you are doing and why you do it. Life itself is dynamic, it will forever change, what we do will change how we feel, where we go and who we are. Remember this.
I leave you with this statement.
Be true to yourself. People will go against you, people will question you, people will try to influence you. No one knows you, better than you know yourself. You are unique, you are beautiful and most of all you are strong. Believe it! Be you!
