In every situation, we have a choice. When we believe we have no choice, we have lost our intelligence; we have lost our ability to constantly look at things from many angles.
When we realize we have a choice, we stay engaged and present; we are free. When we think we have no choice and the world dictates our lives, we may experience resignation, fear, resentment, and other limiting emotions.
Our ability to choose may not allow us to change any outcome, but we can always choose how we view our experience. Our mind creates concepts of what conditions are necessary to be happy. It does not understand that we can experience happiness regardless of the conditions. In fact, we have a choice to experience everything from a place of gratitude, curiosity, and openness, or from a place of threat, negativity, and resentment.
Let’s pause together and remember: we always have a choice.
