The Power of Choice

9 22 14 I ChooseI had a breakthrough yesterday.

You’d think that since I have spent a great deal of time this past year sitting under the teaching of some great inspirational teachers that it would have happened a long time ago, but maybe, like a seed in the earth, there finally comes a time when the bud breaks through the earth.

I got sick last week and it was taking me longer to recover than I expected. Coincidentally it happened when my car was in the repair shop, so I wasn’t going anywhere anyway! My car and I were sick together!

I got the car back on Friday, but it still wasn’t running right when I drove it Saturday. Ugh! Now what? I didn’t want to be tied down without a car again!

I checked my mail on Saturday and had a bit of bad news.

I was feeling a little moody about some personal things, and I was very tired.

It was a recipe for one great big depressing emotional FUNK!

Except…

I was stopped in my emotional tracks by a voice in my head that said… “I have the power to choose how I feel right now.”

I have the power to choose.

I have the power to choose.

I choose to not feel down, but to feel calm.

It was as if somehow somewhere in the universe a puzzle piece had just clicked into place.

It was like one of those movies where Indiana Jones just figured out the last bit of the puzzle that revealed the hidden treasure.

I have the power to choose how I feel.

I choose to feel calm. I choose to feel peaceful. I choose to feel positive.

That’s it.

It may sound very simplistic, and you may say, “Well, I’ve read that before and I know that!” But have you ever really experienced that lightbulb moment in a singular moment for yourself? I hope so.

Remember, the next time you come to an emotional crossroad – YOU have the power of choice.

Choose harmony. Choose peace. Choose love.
