What Are Your Choices?

julie boyer, daily gratitude projectIn every moment of every day, we have a choice. Most of the time we don’t even realize that we do have a choice, but that is one of the biggest gifts of being human, free will.

Gratitude Tip: Slow down today and ask yourself, what choice do I have in this situation? Am I able to make a different choice that will serve me and others better? If you are living in a free country, take a moment to remember those who fought for your freedom of choice and express gratitude that you are free to make the choices that you want.

I had the opportunity to record a podcast for The Fit & Vibrant You with Tanja Shaw yesterday and I won’t reveal all of the juicy details about our chat but I will say that I’m excited to share it with all of you in a few weeks. We did talk about choosing to be happy. Happiness is a choice. It’s not a destination or something that you look for outside of you. It’s a decision. You can either choose to be happy or not. You can choose to feel joy or not. You can choose to be grateful in every situation, or not. It’s always a choice.

When we say the words, I don’t have a choice, we are giving away our power to someone or something else. These words are also often used when we don’t want to make a choice or we don’t like our options. If you find yourself thinking that you don’t have a choice – stop for a moment, think about what you have to be grateful right in that moment to change you frame of mind – and they see if you can find another choice.

One of the blessing about choosing network marketing as my career are the choices I have. Yesterday I took my daughter to get her stitches out and to get her tetanus booster. Neither experience was that pleasant and she wasn’t feeling that great afterwards. I was able to make the choice to keep her home with me for the day. And I still found a way to get my work done (even recorded the 1 hour podcast!) while spending as much time with her as possible. Would it have been easier if I dropped her off to school late? Sure thing. Was it worth keeping her home with me? Absolutely. I am so grateful to be able to make this choice without having to ask anyone.

If you feel like you’d enjoy more freedom in your life to make choices without having to ‘check’ with a boss or a manager, and you enjoy serving others, let’s chat. I invite you to fill out my mentorship program application and then we’ll connect for a Skype call to get to know each other.
