“Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make different choices”.
I know it has been a while since I last did a reflection Sundays post, because my weekends have been busy, and this sort of post is not one you can “pre-plan”. It feels more real to me because it’s written in the moment, and exposes my thoughts and feelings on this present day… and I don’t want that to change.
So I felt this fitting because i just read a quote that resonated so much with me, this morning, and felt I wanted to say something about it.
Isn’t it true though? Everything that we do or say, is a choice we have made whether to do or say it. You CHOOSE to wear different coloured socks. You CHOOSE to wear pants instead of dresses. You CHOOSE to live promiscuously. You CHOOSE to start something, or to end it. It’s all your CHOICE. So now, you cant really say that, ‘it wasn’t my choice’ unless that right to choose was physically taken from you and you had no other option. Fair. However with anything else that you willingly choose to do, you have to accept your truth in it.
Once accepting that, it was your choice, you single handedly accept blame for your choice, should it go wrong, or not yield the results you were expecting. Well, that’s what you SHOULD be doing. But do we ever do that? Blame ourselves for the choices we have made? Sure, SOMETIMES, but why do that when blaming the other party always seems so much easier right? Why do we not want to OWN up to our creation of that mess, by that choice we made?
OWN YOUR TRUTH…
Its easy to blame your partner for everything that goes wrong in your relationship. However, ALLOWING it to happen, was, again, YOUR CHOICE, so why are you not acknowledging that you also had your role to play in all of this? It’s so easy to blame your friend for not being a good friend, but do you ever acknowledge your role in that friendship? I’m not saying BLAME yourself all the time because you made that choice, because sometimes you are genuinely NOT at fault. I get that, but far too often people ride the “blame the other person wave” for far too long.
Let’s be honest to ourselves. If you make a choice, own that choice. You have made it, own your truth. If you are not happy with the outcome of your choices, then simple, MAKE A DIFFERENT CHOICE…
I hope this post speaks to you, on some level 🙂 Have a blessed Sunday 🙂
Until the next one,
Live in Light and Love ❤
