100 Words: Choice

choice sign
“He makes me so angry!”
“You make me happy.”
“She calms me down.”

What if all of these were bullhockey?

You always have a choice about what you do, who you are with, what you say … even how you feel. Even that.

Every moment presents a choice. And every choice has a cost. The decision is really about your willingness to pay the cost.

Mindfulness allows us to consciously make the choices that constitute our days. Rather than feeling trapped or victimized, choose. (Warning! Not choosing is a choice.)

What are the possibilities for you right now? Go choose.
