As it is a new season with new beginnings we also get to make new choices for ourselves. Every moment we are awake we get to constantly make new choices for how our life is going to go.
We get to start over every moment. Can you imagine that thought? We get to start over every moment. We can choose something then choose again. We get to always re-choose how our life is going to go and how we are going to respond in every moment. If something is not going our way we get to choose how we respond and make it different. We have the power to decide all of it.
We get to begin again...we get to create do-overs for ourselves every moment we choose too. To be real, there are some moments we don't get to choose to redo; however we do get to choose how we respond and how the outcome will turn out for us. We always have that opportunity to begin again when we choose.
We always get the opportunity to take that very next step. It does not matter what is happening we always get that next step to take for our lives. That next step is always there...it's a matter of choosing to take that next step and how we react to the next step. Everything is always up to us how we are going to live....if you think about it...life does not just happen, it responds to what we are asking for...
We always get to choose to say "I am sorry" and we always get to choose whether or not we forgive. We sometimes feel that if we forgive then we are saying its okay for us to be treated a certain way; however if we forgive, we are truly forgiving for our own selves to be free to move forward. When we stay stuck and don't forgive our past or what has happened to us, we become bitter angry people and our whole life stops. Think about it....what is it that you keep getting angry about and you stay stuck in that moment....until you decide to forgive you will continue to live that nightmare. I have chosen to forgive my past and myself; I have set everyone free along with setting myself free. I have realized all that I have been through has been a blessing in disguise so that I can appreciate all that I have in this very moment.
We need to take some time for ourselves. We need to start to take the time to look around and really appreciate all that we have. All work and no play makes for a very grumpy person. We have all been through it trying to get a head and make ends meet. I get it!!! However we need to stop and start to love, laugh and enjoy all the fruits of our labor before it all withers away. All work and no play will not make you better it will make you bitter.
I beg you; start to live your life to the fullest and enjoy all the gifts that are around you. Life truly is one big party that goes by way to fast. Look around at your children that will definitely tell you how fast time goes by. When I look at my own son who is now 23 years old...I can't believe it....just yesterday he was sitting on my lap telling me how much he loved me and how beautiful I was. Life goes by in a blink, we are never promised tomorrow so quit worrying about yesterday and really enjoy today.
Have an amazing day my friends...Until we meet again...
With all my love....Rita
