I am grateful for choice and the ability to choose. Everyday I am faced with external and internal choices. What attitude will I choose today as my day unfolds? Choosing is empowering and gives me the understanding that I am fully responsible for the experiences of my life’s journey.
A while ago I had a conversation with the professor in a public speaking class( it was a required course ). I felt incredibly anxious about giving a speech before the class. Just going to class stressed me out.
One day in class we were discussing a topic which I don’t remember now. Anyway, I do remember I asked the teacher a question about how to get past the feeling of anxiety in regards to public speaking.
He grinned and said “Well it’s about choice”. I thought that was not a helpful answer. As usual, I and the rest of class debated his idea about anxiety being a choice. He just smiled and said again, Life is all about choices you can choose the feelings of anxiety or not it’s up to you.
I am grateful for choice
Over the years I have thought countless times about that day and so very grateful for that life changing wisdom that was shared with me. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about choice points and the conscious understanding I am always on intersecting paths filled with choices however large or small.
This image with gratitude quote will also be posted on my Pinterest site. All of my the quotes for this blog are here of course, but if you go on my Pinterest site you may find them easier and quicker to explore.
I am thankful to you :-) for coming here and checking out my website. It is my sincerest hope that I have inspired you to think about your life in a more positive and loving way. I like to imagine that if more of us (including myself ) spend more energy on all the things we are grateful for instead of all the things we don’t have or situations we are unhappy about, the world would be a much better place.
Love and peace always, Margaret:-)
