Your Mind – Your Choice

Don’t underestimate yourself. You’re more powerful than you think! You can do it! You make choices daily.

Some effect your whole life. Be encouraged! Move forward! You may not be able to change the past, but you can improve. Consider circumstances and possible results [before] the decision. The same temptation may come clothed differently. Opportunities are available. Children learn to make choices. Parents teach them what is okay and what is not okay.

You choose to get up in the morning, get dressed get started. You choose to be prompt. You choose decisions, good and not so good. On the whole, most turn out to have been good choices. Some choices are more critical than others…choosing our friends, mates, careers and many others. Remember, “30 seconds of pleasure can mean a lifetime of pain!” {that was hard to say} We can say, “The devil made me do it.” But, the decision making entity is your mind. You have control. You hold the remote! Your thoughts, your mind. Conceptualization comes before actualization. Thoughts are invisible. When the thought is realized, it becomes a physical reality. It’s like an artist or writer. The artist has a creative idea; it is actualized on the canvas. During the artwork, he works on it to perfect it. So, is life, not everything is perfect or just like we want it to be; but we keep moving forward to mold it into a more appreciable product of what we had in mind from the beginning. Obstacles will come. Don’t give up!
