Make Believe

28 Dec

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. Many are routine and inconsequential, and we hardly give them any thought. However, some decisions are so important, they may change the trajectory of our lives moving forward. If we’re in a tight spot and doing the right thing would be difficult, we might decide to choose an easier, although unethical or dishonest, option. Bad decisions may require little effort in the beginning, but what happens afterward may be harder to face. We are always in control of everything we do, and if we want to, can choose the easiest roads ahead regardless of whether or not they are the best. If we get tangled up and impact others, we can deny we had anything to do with it and ignore the complications we’ve created, but the truth will eventually rise, and we’ll have to answer for what we’ve done. Playing make believe is fun when we’re children, but pretending things are different than they really are never works as adults. Nobody is perfect and we’re all going to falter at some time or another, but by owning our decisions and doing what is needed to correct our course and fix what we’ve broken, we can regain our footing and get back on track. Our lives belong to us and each choice we make defines who we are. We can choose wisely and live in ways that bring us happiness and the respect of those around us. Or we can thoughtlessly blunder through, do what we want regardless of the consequences, and have lives filled with chaos and disharmony. The choices we make will decide what happens. We are intelligent and capable of making excellent decisions. By taking our time, and getting as much information as possible beforehand, we can make choices that bring us the results we’re seeking. We don’t have to play make believe when our lives reflect what we want most and take us where we want to go.

It takes a lot of energy to come up with stories and try to design facts to create a narrative we want. Instead of embellishing what’s really happening, we can simply state things as they are and let the situation develop honestly. We can be confident in making good decisions, and trust ourselves to find the best roads ahead. Every destination is there for us, and with clarity and focus, we will succeed.

When we want to look our best, we may wear our best clothes and add adornments that make us look great. Dressing up can change the way we appear to others but dressing up the truth changes nothing. Truth is what it is. Trying to make it appear different to be more pleasing or easier to accept doesn’t change the situation. We can manage anything that arises and face any complication or problem, sure we will prevail. Nothing is too hard for us to handle, and every success is always possible.

Today if you’re tempted to make a bad decision out of desperation or uncertainty, remember how strong and capable you are. Face things as they are and make choices that will help you move forward. Every destination is possible, and with honesty and clarity, you can do anything you desire. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can keep you from success.
