Every Day You Make Choices

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbinsstre

 

“Every day, you make choices about what you will dedicate your time to, how you will spend your money, and who you will rely on. In every aspect of your life, you have the ability to choose either simplicity or complexity; finances, work, chores, shopping, entertainment, and relationships may all be sources of stress and chaos, or they may become wellsprings of peace and contentment.”Chelsea Walters

 

 

Choosing whether we’ll let anger turn to rage

“We couldn’t help getting angry when we were hurt; we had no choice in the matter. We can, however, make a decision about whether we’ll allow that anger to turn into rage.”Brian Jones, Forgivenes

 

Choosing over and over

“I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.”― Veronica Roth, Allegiant

If you celebrate your differences

“If you celebrate your differences, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated.”
― Victoria Moran, Lit From Within: Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty

Choose!

“I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!” ― Oscar Wilde

Two Roads Diverged

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Today’s quote is from the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.  I encourage you to read the poem in it’s entirety and take a few minutes to reflect on what these words mean to you.  Is there a road less traveled in your life that has made all the difference for you?
