You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ Eleanor Roosevelt
I really am empowered by the concept that we ultimately have the Power of Choice.. in all areas of our life.
I came across a TED talks video that does an amazing job of discussing this.
Caroline Myss is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness,
In Caroline’s unique style, she talks about 3 key choices people can make to change their life.
Really a powerful presentation…
Key points:
Remove these words from your daily thoughts: blame, deserve, and entitled….toxic vocabulary.. life changer
3 Choices:
1. Integrity: make a choice to live a life of integrity: speak the truth, do not betray nor compromise your values and remember “Liars don’t Heal” …”to thine own self be true”
2. Wisdom: pass on the wisdom you learn in life, NOT your pain and suffering
3. Risk taker: take risks in regrets,do not let FEAR of humiliation, being alone nor Money make you take the safe Path!
Make a choice to wake up daily and be grateful for the new day.. for the opportunity to live the life you CHOOSE to LIVE, and accept that you are YOU, be in the Present, not regretting the past…..
Make a choice to be kind to yourself, practice SELF CARE and value SELF WORTH, and set realistic boundaries (my addition)
DON’T let your past dictate your future! You are a new you!
Be present in new day – don’t ‘take the safe path, learn from your past and move on, take chances, not wondering what could have been, if, should, could , would, etc.
