It’s one of my pet hates, and a subject I return to and debate often: choice.
OK, I do know that there are some circumstances where life’s choices are taken away from you – I’m not that heartless or naive that I would believe otherwise. But what I’m talking about are the moments when we can make a choice because we have the power to take control, make a decision, be in charge, stand up for ourselves, be bold, be assertive … even when it’s a little uncomfortable to do so.
With time, practising to exercise your choice becomes easier. And often it does take time to work out that you do have a choice, and that you can exert it.
I know that I hold the power within me to choose. And making that choice feels wonderful.
