Choice Thoughts

she wrote

Every person, all the events of your life, are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.

You are free to create and honor, whatever past you choose to heal and transform your present.

There is a reason you choose what’s happening around you. Hang on, live your way through the best you know, and in a bit, you’ll find out why.

You build your personal world, calm or wild, according to what you wish. You can’t weave peace in the midst of chaos. Your personal world depends on how you shape your spirit.

When you seek inspiration, its ideas you want. When you pray for guidance, its ideas that show the way. But you have to pay attention.

The biggest reason you don’t get answers is that you haven’t asked the questions.

Life requires you to feel the consequences of your choices.

If it’s never your fault, you can’t take responsibility for it. If you can’t take responsibility for it, you’ll always be its victim.

Whatever you decide to live, you’ll live not once, but a thousand times over, remembering for the rest of your life.

With every choice, you risk the life you would have had, with every decision, you lose it.

The smallest turn today will take you to a dramatically different tomorrow.

You can tell a lot about a person when you know what brings them comfort.

You don’t have to choose fate. Listen to your invisible companion, express the music you hear and ignore what people think you should be doing.

“Of all the sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest of these: it might have been…” Herman Wouk
