There is a power within each and every one of us.
It is a power that can spark forward momentum and massive change in our lives
It can open us up to new opportunities and new possibilities.
But it can also keep us stuck or worse, send us spiraling downwards.
It is the power of choice.
And we are always at choice.
From one moment to the next we can choose our mood.
We can choose to find the silver lining, the spark of joy or the lightness of a situation.
Or we can choose to be hurt, angry, wronged, self-righteous.
We can choose to forgive, heal, seek understanding and unity.
Or we can choose to hold onto anger, hurt and sludge balls.
It is all within our power.
Choice is a slippery power though as it oftentimes seems to slide away, out of reach.
We are confronted with situations in which we feel powerless
We are confronted with situations that leave us feeling hopeless
We are confronted with a reality that doesn’t seem to be working for us but rather against us.
In these moments we forget that we do have power.
We have the power of choice.
We can choose to stay.
We can choose to leave.
We can choose to speak up.
We can choose to be bold and fearless.
We can choose to get ourselves unstuck and moving forward.
We can choose to take back our power.
We are in the driver’s seat of our own lives.
We can choose the destination.
We can choose the radio station and set the mood for the journey.
We can choose to uphold this power and not let it slip away.
Let us remember our collective power.
Let us remember we are always at choice.
How might you exercise your power of choice as you make your best life a priority?
