Choice...That's All It Is...

Someone once said, “Remember. Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice YOU make makes you.” It is a difficult truth. I am accountable for my feelings. I am accountable for my thoughts. I am responsible (able to respond) for my actions. No one MAKES me feel a certain way or react a certain way. I choose it. And let me tell ya. It is a very frustrating truth. I sometimes want to blame my childhood or past relationships for things happening now. And it’s easy to do. Truth is? When I do that, I am choosing to be stuck. So let’s look at it. Say it out loud! “I choose to be happy!” Even in that statement there is uplift. Then…thoughts come crashing it, right? Inside homies who jumped in along the way to validate me…to make me right...all singing their praises. "No man! Happy? You crazy? What about your weight? What about your butt? What about your car?" And our Spirit diminishes to…yeah…and we slip into misery again. How about…"Shut the F Up!!! What about I’m happy I have a butt! I’m happy I have weight! I can do something about THAT! How about I can get a car! Or I can get a better car! Or hey at least I have a car." We don't think about talking BACK to those voices...which allows us to CHOOSE AGAIN! It’s those dammed voices that mess us up. It’s those dammed voices that make us feel like we don’t have a choice! You do! Dam it! Stand up and CHOOSE! WHAT DO YOU WANT? Now make a plan! Get to it! Tell me how it goes!
