So Many Choices!
by COSS Blog Contributor Joann Homen
Imagine how boring life would be if we didn't have many choices in life. Luckily life is full of opportunities and choices, what a magical thing!
And what's even better about having so much to choose from, well the fact that each of us are COMPLETELY in control of our own choices.
Are you feeling miserable? Choose not to be.
Feeling Angry? Choose not to be!
Feeling Anxious? Choose not to be!
Our mind is so powerful, way more powerful than most of us realize. Unfortunately, a lot of us get caught up in knee-jerk reactions to situations that happen in our lives rather than intentionally reflecting on the situation and deciding how to react.
It is in our best interest to unlearn self-sabotaging behaviour and become the masters of our reactions and emotions. Awareness is the first step towards choosing “HOW TO BE" rather than reacting.
Once something triggers you into a negative mindset and reaction, STOP, and instead decide who you want to be in the situation. By doing so you gain control in your life in a positive way and help to eliminate stress in your life.
Choose wisely who you want to be and how you react to situations and watch your life transform for the better.
My suggestion to help you achieve greater happiness in your life is to always choose joy, happiness and a peace over all other emotions and you to will find life truly is a magical place when you do!
