Possibilities & choices

Do you ever think about all the possibilities you contain? All the possibilities life lays out in front of you? It's quite amazing when you really stop to reflect on the idea.

You are totally amazing. Because of the array of gifts you've been given, you have any number of choices for careers, hobbies, activities, ways to spend your time and life choices. Because of your life experiences and the events from which you've learned, you have an expanded number of choices and possibilities.

It's too easy to simply put one foot in front of the other, doing whatever seems necessary or what seems to be the path of least resistance. But when we do that, we can miss out on so many possibilities that might have led to joy, growth, transformation or the fulfillment of dreams.

Stop. Take a moment to think about desires, dreams and passions you have. Then think about your gifts and possibilities. If you want to change up something in your life, there's no time like the present. It doesn't have to be moving across the country or even to another country. It doesn't even necessarily mean changing jobs or careers. It can mean any of those things. But it can be as simple as deciding to begin and/or end your day thinking of five things for which you're grateful. It can be tweaking your daily routine to add time for yoga or deep breathing so you can experience more serenity. It might even be initiating a date night with your spouse or partner once a week.

Choices. Possibilities. You have lots of them. Explore options—see what joy that can bring.
