    After being in a toxic relationship

    for so long I have come to a stark realization. I have a CHOICE. I have a choice to not put up with it anymore. I have a choice to not respond to his name calling and hurtful words. I have a choice to make something better of myself. I have a choice to create a happy life. For...

    Him: I'm sorry for the mean things I've said

    and done. Used to be you would just cry, then you fought back and now you've left me.

    Other people take time to absorb the surroundings before venturing forward. Others take into consideration what could happen with all the what-ifs. I really do not allow myself to do all these whether to be on the safe side or to be certain of whatever that may come along. I do...

    The Path Of More Joy

    It took me time to understand my life, questions about all the obstacles that were on my path. I thought why life was so unfair to me, but today I have understood the good in the bad things. I really did pick the right life. Yes, I did and as much as I used to think otherwise, I...

    I Might Not Like The Choices I Have Though

    That's where a lot of people get confused and don't really finish their statement. What they mean to say is, I didn't have a choice I liked. Instead, they might say...I didn't have a choice.

    I Am My Own Person

    I always have a choice to be who I am. I can't stand to see people who follow others just to be a part of a group. I was taught to always be myself. I feel sorry for all the 'followers' in life. I would rather choose to be a leader.

    Our lives are shaped by the choices we make ... if, like me, you are someone who chooses with your heart instead of your head, then you will know that your heart is not always the best judge of certain aspects.  So many things would have been very different if I'd ignored...

    Our Days and Lives Are Coloured by The Choices We Make

    This can be as simple as my deciding to take the bus to work rather than my car.  If I drive, I'll get there twice as fast, don't have to leave as early as I would using transit, and will get home faster, too.  If I ride the bus, I don't have to worry about driving...

    I Am In Control

    Even when it seems like everything is going wrong, I am in control. I have the choice to let whatever or whoever it is bother me. I have the choice on how to react. I have the choice on where to go from there. When things go right I have the choice to receive and accept it. I...

    Sometimes the choices aren't easily seen, you have to really look for them.  No matter what, I always have a choice.  A choice of words, thoughts, and actions.  I don't always make the best decisions, but I do learn from each one.  When you're...

    I Choose the Middle Path:

    I don't know but it is really amazing how I always settle for little bit of this and little bit of that. I like to balance everything. I can't make a clear choice- at times when I am compelled to do so- It upsets me. It gets difficult.

    No Matter What

    No matter what I do in life, or not do, I know that I always have a choice in it. Even some emotions of mine, I do have a say in that too. :-) I can choose to react to some things with anger or sadness, but I can also choose to let some things not get to me also. I choose not to...

    Choosing Wisely

    Everything in life is a choice.  The lesson is to choose wisely.  Sometimes the wisest choice is not always the healthiest one or even the sanest one.  Wisdom is not ruled by good morals.  Then what IS wisdom?  Wisdom is knowing the perfect path for...
