What are Choices?
An excerpt from Conscious Choices: What I CHOOSE to BE as I Create Me
by Celeste Pichette, RHA Well-Being Practitioner
What kind of choices have you made today? This week? This month? This year? This lifetime?
Why did you make the choices you made?
Would you call the choices good or bad? Did you get the results you expected? Did you have expectations when you made the choices?
Did your choices serve you? Did they help you evolve into who you really are?
Choices, what are they? We make them all the time every day, every minute: from when to get up in the morning, to what to wear to work, to whether to go to work, to what kind of work you do, to what kind of person you are while you are at work. Every action you perform is a choice. You can choose to act the way you are acting or you can choose not to. You can choose to act a certain way for another’s benefit or you can choose to act for your own benefit. Your choice may be based on the beliefs of society, the beliefs of your religion, the beliefs of your education, the beliefs of your parents or a combination of these. Believe it or not your choices may be based on your own inner beliefs, those beliefs you have yet to discover.
Your choices are statements to the world of who you are. Who you are is a combination of all your thoughts, all your values, and all your experiences. However, that is who you are NOW. Who you will BE is the manifestation of the conscious choices you are going to make each day you wake up and realize that this lifetime was given to you by God for you to create who you choose to BE.
What is going on in your life at this moment, how your life is and how it will be is all up to you. You have the power within yourself to create the life you desire. The life you desire is directly related to where you are coming from when you make every decision in your life. Whether it is a small decision or a large one, when you make that decision from the space of who you are versus what you are doing you will experience a completely different outcome. This is because you are creating rather than reacting to what is happening in your life.
