The dilemma of choice

choices

We are really spoilt for choice these days that sometimes the amount of choice set before us becomes unbelievably overwhelming and we just do nothing.

So as human beings we are able to speak approximately 400 words in a minute but have 40000 thoughts and are bombarded with over 200000 marketing messages throughout the day. Within all of that how do we make decisions?

Do we do the right thing the thing that is expected of us from our family and friends? 

Do we feel the thing that we have been talked into from all of the marketing saying buy, buy, buy?

Or do we do the thing that our heart is singing about? The decision that brings a smile to our face without us even thinking about it? The thing that makes us shine from the inside? 

It’s so fulfilling when you let yourself choose that thing, a choice made from love, not from should have, could have, would haves. This is a choice that is not thought about it’s the only that is made through you like it was always meant to be, if you will destiny. Now I’m not saying that your life is pre-written I’m just saying that some choices have less struggle associated with them (though a bit of struggle increases your ability to love more)

There is no right or wrong when making choices, our choices just lead us into experiences which create the world that we live in.

So next time that you are saying that you are in a dilemma there are too many choices, take some time out and forget about everyone around you and feel what you want to choose. This may still be a hard decision to make but if it’s what you truly want it will be rewarding beyond words.

 

 

Loneliness

Do you know who you are? I’m always reinventing myself as I grow things that I like to do change, what I like to eat, what I listen to, the clothes I wear but I’m always me. Lately I’ve been sitting a lot by myself to get in touch with who I am now. Yes even at 36 I find that who I was yesterday is a little bit different than who I am today. Sitting by myself helps me feel like I’m not alone. What a strange concept that sitting by myself could cure my loneliness isn’t it. But by being comfortable with my own thoughts and feelings helps me to embrace life to the fullest. I think that loneliness is something that most humans experience at sometime or another within our lives. It’s then how we manage these feelings that determines how long we sit with the emotion that the loneliness raises. You are your own best friend and no one will ever love you the same way as if you truly live yourself. Try going somewhere in nature the beach, a park, the desert and sit by yourself and embrace the feeling of loneliness and see if you can turn it into love.
