Do you want to create action, or do you want to just survive? Let’s get real, we have all had a time in our lives when you are sailing along, and everything is going well, and the next second BOOM, life for you just changed. Most likely, this will happen to you many times throughout your life. Some of the unexpected changes will be big and others small. How you react will make all the difference in the world.
You are in control of the path you choose to take. You can sit in misery and feel sorry for yourself for hours, days, years, or even for the rest of your life. You can choose to stay in an unhappy state, blaming others and your surroundings for your sadness and anger. Or you could take a completely different approach.
What if you choose happiness? What if you decided to go down the new, unexpected path with love? What if you stood strong, sucked it up, and moved forward? Choosing happiness, strength, and allowing your self to move into a new space is a lovely thing. Your mindset and choices design the map of how the next chapters of your life will play out. Even when there is a glitch in the system that feels negative, be responsible for how you react.
Moving forward and swimming with the current instead of against it feels so much better. Imagine unexpectedly falling in a river that is flowing fast and hard. Trying to swim upstream and hold your head above water is very difficult. However, if you choose to swim strong with the current and point yourself in the right direction, you have a much better chance of a positive outcome.
I challenge you today to become the master of your course. Look for an area in your life where you need to start swimming with the current instead of against it. It might be difficult, and you may need to tell yourself to suck it up and keep moving forward. Create a positive action. You can do this. I believe in you!
