One of the most powerful concepts I have learned and put into practice is that I have a choice.
I get to choose how I feel and how I react to everything in my life.
I used to think this meant if something wasn't going my way or as planned that I should just flip a switch and feel better; see the opportunity, not the disappointment.
What I've come to learn is that, deciding I have a choice means taking responsibility and empowering myself. It's recognizing that I can feel what I'm feeling and take actions to move in a better direction. Deciding I have a choice means I'm not stuck here because of some outside circumstance.
It means I find my power by asking myself:
How would I like to see this situation?
What do I need right now?
What do I need to move forward?
How do I want to reframe this so I feel empowered in the future?
