The Power of Choice

March 3, 2013 by Edward Laskey in Wisdom
Stop reliving the past, and don’t make promises you can’t keep. Accept things as they are, and not how you expect them to be. Remember, it’s never too late to change, and you’re never too old to learn something new. Live your life free of drugs and sober minded. Have faith and believe in yourself. If you have the desire and the willingness, change is possible. Build bridges not walls. Know that life isn’t always fair, and sometimes bad things happen to good and unsuspecting people….so expect the unexpected. Take responsibility for your life and your actions. Live in the solution and not in the problem. Be kind and helpful to others without bragging and being boastful. It’s what we do when no one is watching that builds character. Don’t take life too seriously. Take time out to play and laugh often. Live one day at a time. Don’t dwell on the past and worry about the future. If you have one foot stuck in yesterday, and one foot stuck in tomorrow, then you’re only pissing all over today. So live in the present. The two greatest gifts from God are love and free will. Everyone has the power of choice. Choose wisely. Be slow to anger. Keep an open mind and have a forgiving heart. Don’t judge others. Always give your best and don’t be afraid or ashamed to ask for help. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Never settle for less than your own heart’s desire, and above all else….be true to yourself.
