A universal paradox is “you’re free to choose but you’re not free from the consequences of your choice.”
Between work and family, there are days when it’s really difficult to do a balancing act with our lives. You know how you have those days where your boss suddenly out of nowhere calls for a meeting pronto, but it’s the same time as your daughter’s ballet recital or son’s basketball game – and you have the tug-of-war decision to either put food on the table or keep a promise to your children.
We’re living in different times that make choices in life a challenging one.
Whether it’s the food you eat (organic or fast food) or the friends we make or the company we keep or the places we explore…the choices are vast and ours to make.
The abundance of choices provides us the profound freedom to explore and to do what we want. And this freedom, while at times abused, provides us the happiness to revel in the choices and consequences of such choice.
Someone once said that there are three C’s in our lives that matter. Choice, chance and change.
“You must make the choice, to take the chance, if you want anything in life to change.”
Everyday is a new day that provides us an opportunity to reflect on the choices, the chances and yes, the changes we want in our lives.
And don’t feel bad about making decisions that may not be popular or even upset others. Remember: you’re not responsible for their happiness. Only your own.
Make the choice today.
