What Choice or Free Will?

 

Making-Choices-At-Cross-Roads-represents-Free-Will-Arriving-at-a-Cross-Road-represents-destinyI have often wondered if there is really such a thing as free will or are we just following predetermined cosmic paths created for us to experience.

Constantly people are faced with challenges and situations which always give them a key experience or understanding that they need to accomplish a goal or create something that never could have been accomplished without it.  Did you make choices about your actions or was it your destiny?

Choice

Choice– an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.

What choices will you make today?

There is a freedom that exists in every choice we make.  From the seemingly meaningless routines of the day to the most complicated interpersonal decisions, the choice of your thoughts, words, and actions always lies exclusively with you alone. That is an awesome and sometimes frightening proposition. But that is part of the joy of life.

Always a Choice

What do we all have in common that makes us human?

No matter where you are living or what you do to survive, life always boils down to the choices we make. From who you choose as friends to how responsible you are, it is all decided with a conscious decision on your part. We all have the ability to choose what we experience.

 Many people have a hard time accepting responsibility for these choices in their lives but if you look at yourself honestly and in an unbiased fashion, you will see the power your choices have had on the success or failure in your life.

The Thought Switch

change-your-thoughts-and-you-change-your-world147At each moment in the day, each thought that we entertain is a choice. Many times I find myself thinking a thought that is judgmental, negative or fear driven. Fortunately, with everything we think, the opposite is also available.  Like flipping a switch, we have the ability at any moment to turn off those negative thoughts and turn them into a positive. This is a thought switch that is available to you at all moments. Rather than complain, think something else.

Be Confident In You

Being Confident In Life Is a Choice

Although I have trouble sometimes with certain concepts, one thing has confidence-is-a-choice-to-act-or-to-do-or-to-decide-quote-1become abundantly clear.  Being Confident in life is a choice.

Confidence stems from the conscious decision to accept yourself for what you are and to not let your weaknesses rule over your strengths.   Can it really be that simple?  The answer is apparently a loud and emphatic YES!

 

Let’s face it, we are all human beings, and all of us are constructed with a list of strengths and weaknesses to take advantage of or overcome.  Everybody is in the same boat, there is nobody who is exempt.

What are you sure of in life? What philosophy can you stand behind and not shy away from because you are sure of its validity? We all have some non-negotiable items in this cache. The sun will rise, the sun will set. Life is fleeting. You must work hard to be successful. The government is looking out for your best interest. If it isn’t one thing, it’s another. There are many points of view which are considered by people constant, unshakable and permanent fixtures in life and creators of our reality. Yet in reality, they are only interesting points of view that you can choose to believe or discard as you see fit.

All people are going to answer this question differently depending on where they are in their life.  To me being alive is a fact of nature, and enjoying life and living for a purpose is truly living.  But how do you enjoy life?

Other people will answer this very differently.    It only takes a few visits to any number of blogs to experience the wide variety of philosophies and beliefs that exist.

I Do Not Like Mean People

Why Mean People Are MeanI don't like Mean People

One of the things I like the least in life are mean people.  Mean people exist and thrive on crapping on the attitude, accomplishments,  interests or well being of someone else, with the sole purpose of making themselves feel more powerful or to increase their own self-esteem.  In a word these people are toxic and need to be avoided at all costs. They can leave you feeling worn out, tired, depleted and negative about everything but most importantly about yourself. It seems that they spend all day thinking about how to be mean to people.
