We all choose how we are going to live our lives. What works for some people, may not work for others. But no matter what we do in life, or how we do it, we must always remember that we are in control of our decisions. There is no excuse for not trying something we’ve always wanted to try. Floating along in life without cause or reason, waiting for things to happen, is a sure way to become depressed, complacent, jealous, or just generally unhappy.
It’s important that we always make a decision with what we’re going to do – what we’re going to believe. Happiness comes from making the decision – and even if it doesn’t turn out how we expected, it’s proven that we won’t be upset. On the contrary – we will actually be happier that we made the decision than if we did nothing. We will be happy because we tried something new, that we put our thoughts into action, that we learned, that we guided our lives in the direction of our own vision. And we grow in the process and let go of fear a little each time. So many doors open, so many possibilities.
We are all so unique in this world and full of color and it’s really a beautiful thing. Our decisions are our own. We make them based on many factors that are rare and specific to us, sometimes based on things going on in our lives that even people very close to us can’t know or understand. It’s the same with anything in life that we choose to do, or believe. We can’t say that our mind is better than someone else’s. Our experiences are unique, as well as our journeys.
I’ve learned… you will feel so much better if you can learn to not pass judgment on someone else or their decisions. Sometimes when we are trying very hard to not pass judgment and be free in our ways of thinking, we end up judging others who don’t see the world like we do. But how can we share in consciousness if we are so quick to assume? Rather than being open-minded, we actually become very close-minded to the feelings or thoughts of others. What a boring world it would be if we were all the same. We should support our loved ones in their endeavors and their feelings. Be happy for them and the decisions they make. Be receptive of their feelings. We are all different, but we must remember that our truths are what we cling to. If we could be accepting and understanding of our loved ones, think of the possibilities that could occur with complete strangers.
Individuality is cause for joy and celebration. When our paths cross with someone on an entirely different journey, we should celebrate in one another. Be there when our friends need us and continue to make decisions that benefit our lifestyle, heart, and soul so that we can benefit others in the natural process. If we are happy, that is positive energy that will ripple into the world. If we are happy, we will find ways to share, help, and inspire.
So, what’s holding you back? Put your dreams into action and make a decision to do something you’ve always wanted to do. Don’t be afraid. Life is too short. The payoff will be worth it.
