your life is your choice

"Everything is a choice.

This is life greatest truth and its hardest lesson.

It is a hard lesson, because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now. It is perhaps frightening for us to think that we have chosen to live our life exactly as it is today. Frightening because we may not like what we find when we look at our lives. But it is also liberating, because we can now begin to choose what we will find when we look at our life in the tomorrows that lie 
unlived before us.

Life is choices. 

You have chosen to live this day. You have chosen to read this book {& blog!}. You have chosen to live in a certain city. You have chosen to believe certain ideas.
You choose the food you eat, the clothes you wear, and the thoughts you think. You choose to be calm or restless, you choose to feel appreciative or ungrateful.
Love is a choice. Anger is a choice. Fear is a choice. Courage is a choice.

You choose.

You may argue that you are forced to live in a certain city or drive a certain car, but it is not true. And if it is, it is true only temporary and because of a choice you have made in the past.

We choose our lives, and in doing so, we design our lives.

Perhaps one day we will realize that we have chosen much more than we have even imagined.

I hope that day is today.

For the day we accept that we have chosen to choose our choices is the day we cast off the shackles of victim-hood and are set free to pursue the lives we were born to live."
~ Matthew Kelly from the book The Rhythm of Life
