We always have a choice
We ALWAYS have a choice y’all. With every aspect of our lives. It may not be the right time for the choice, it may not feel obvious, and it may not be easy or even possible but there is always a choice.
I live in California and chose to be here over 15 years ago.(Insert your state, circumstance, whatever here as well) I was drawn to the nature, the warm climate, the sun set, the beaches and the endless hiking trails and care free mindset of people that live here.
And now, I find myself frustrated around a lot of what what is happening here. It feels wrong, it feels frustrating AND I am wise enough to know that living in those victim “feelings” are not good for us.
Victim mindset never help us
BUT other than that one paragraph above, I am not going to complain or rant about it anymore. WHY? Because we ALWAYS have a choice.
I was chatting with a good friend of mine the other morning about this. She was super frustrated and said “this feels very wrong” I am going to share with you what I said to her. And I am sharing for my own accountability as well.
WE ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE
Use your/our power/ voice / platforms to MAKE A CHANGE. That does not mean “complain on social media” it means TAKE ACTION AND MAKE THE CHANGE. File the lawsuit, write who you need to write, TAKE ACTION. But complaining on social media won’t change things.
MOVE. Dang Florida is looking really good right now lol. But MOVE if you don’t like it. (I am not there yet)
FIND THE GRATITUDE and move on. If you shut off the news, stop scrolling social and turn to what you LOVE about your current situation your whole mood will change. This is where I am focused now. I type this sitting in my San Diego home, with my view of palm trees, the window open with the 70 degree breeze, the sound of birds chirping, watching a humming bird that stopped by my window , sipping my cacao drink, writing, AND right now, in this moment, ALL I have is gratitude.
All in all, put up and shut up or take action
We ALWAYS have a choice
