Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something.
— Eric Allenbaugh
Happy Monday to you, friends! I hope the sun is shining as beautifully for you right now as it is for me. What a marvelous day!
When I think back on my life I become aware of certain truths. I’m aware that most good things take effort, and usually lots of it. I’m aware that some of the best things are happy accidents. I’m aware that an open spirit brings me better things than a closed spirit. And I’m aware that life never, ever stops moving. I may, but life doesn’t. It’s nice to think that decisions and choices can be made in a vacuum. Wouldn’t it be great if this naughty treat, or this selfish choice, or that innocent dabble were isolate from the rest of life, that it affected nothing but the moment?
Factually, there are no isolated choices, only isolated lives. Every choice/decision is part of the grander journey of our lives nudging us in one direction or another. If you have a goal, a great destination, deciding is simply the first decision, albeit an important one. There will be hundreds of nudges (choices/decisions) that become part of the journey, and each nudge has its own direction. Are your nudges moving you in the direction of your chosen destinations, your personal dreams? Are you helping yourself, or getting in your own way? What decision can you make today to nudge you in the right direction? What can encourage you to do it? I encourage you. Make the decisions that move you in your chosen direction. The life you seek is waiting for you to arrive. Have a wonderful week!
