Defining Moments

28 Sep

Life is long and each day we make many decisions. Each choice we make changes us in some way and the roads we choose tell the world who we are. If we are mindful, we may look at everything clearly before we decide, but there’s often a lot going on around us and it’s easy to get rushed and simply choose the first option available. If it doesn’t impact us much, it might not matter what we choose, but there are sometimes hidden agendas and unforeseen complications that arise and make moving forward difficult. Nobody is perfect and we’re all going to falter at some point, and every decision we make determines what will happen next and defines who we are. If we continually make careless and foolish choices, those around us will understand we are not to be trusted. But if we try hard to choose well, we’ll be able to build relationships and make connections that will benefit us as we move ahead. Every choice is a defining moment. By being aware of what we’re doing, and carefully evaluating where we’re headed, we will find great satisfaction, and continued success.

The world is filled with all kinds of distractions and how we manage them will determine how we’ll proceed. If we’re addicted to our phone, texting and scrolling, and value our time with it over time spent with others, our relationships will suffer. There is no end to the information we can access at any moment. We can spend every minute of every day going through on-line sites, and following others, and accomplish nothing for ourselves. We are in control of our lives, and the choices we make will take us somewhere. We can ensure we are going where we most want to go by focusing clearly on the road ahead.

We are responsible for our time and how we spend it. If we allow ourselves to be over extended and have more to do than we can effectively manage, everything will suffer. There will always be more that needs to be done. It does no good to have so many commitments that we’re overwhelmed and can’t think straight. By recognizing our limits and planning our time to allow for success, we will be able to accomplish much and reach every goal.

Today think about the decisions you’re making. Choose the roads that will take you where you most want to go. You are wiser than you think you are, and every answer you need is available. Decide how you want to proceed, and be confident. Every success is there for you.  Every dream is possible. Trust yourself and step forward, and you will prevail.
