Not too long ago, I bought the 5 Second Journal, created by Mel Robbins. It is an interactive type of daily journal with questions to answer. The first item is a gauge of how you feel when you get up and then there’s an area to list 3 reasons why you feel that way.
After viewing the example page and trying to answer in the same manner, I discovered something about myself. Even if I wake up in a less desirable mood, I don’t get out of bed until I change it. I never get up till I feel good about it. So everyday I always mark the meter between good and excellent. And why? Because I choose to.
Today, I got to thinking about it and that’s the real reason I am who I am, I choose to. It’s easy to look at things and try to assign our feelings and opinions to the circumstances around us, but when we quiet our minds for just a moment we know it is all of our choosing.
For me, that means power and possibility. I can and do choose everything in my life. And when I want a change, I simply choose. How magnificent!!!
