There are times making choices may seem easy, other times not. Ariana Grande made a courageous choice for love with a benefit concert recently. I felt to share about choice.
How are you with making choices in general? And what influences that for you?
Choice is most recognized at major cross-roads, but choice is available in every moment, at any step, on any road.
Every choice has an impact to a greater or lesser extent, each like a pebble dropped in a pond; the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into other areas of your life, the lives of others, and the future.
Choices are often seen as actions, but there are choices of attitude, thought and feeling, choices of principle, of imagination, choices for whole ways of being, and for whole possibilities and realities even. These and other higher spectrum choices influence and lead to the more visible ones.
In life you’ll make ‘mistakes’ (I certainly have in mine), and that’s part of the human journey, an inevitable one that can even be valuable with respects to learning, growth and experience.
I share a process with 20 questions to support choice-making at the post below.
I can think of times choices have felt clear and obvious, and other times I’ve struggled with them. This inquiry process can be really helpful, revealing too!
There may be far more choices available to us than those we are aware of at a given time. Expanding our vision of the possible can open us to more choices.
What choice could you make today that would change your life for the better now, or in the coming weeks, months, or years ahead even?
One small choice can shift your life radically. Even if by a teeny degree now, over time that can make a vast difference, opening you to new paths, possibilities, and experiences. It’s amazing where one choice can lead.
I’ve no doubt you can remember choices you made weeks, months or even years ago that altered who and where you are right now. Perhaps you can also think of choices you didn’t make and wonder how things may have ended up if you had.
There are no perfect choices, but there may be choices that are more or less serving at a given time.
The choice-making process at the link below is shared to support you with that.
Your beliefs, thoughts, feelings and overall state can all impact the nature of choices you make. Being conscious of those, and how they are influencing your choices at a given time obviously helps.
Love will always support any choice you make, period, so whatever helps you open to love will help you with choice.
And you can choose love. Even if you’re not feeling love, or loved, or loving, you can make a choice for love, which in itself can help you open to love and your willingness to allow love to be experienced; the love that you are, the love that is ever there for you, and the love you feel for anything or anyone. Experiencing love may not be an instant flip-switch depending on where you’re at, but it doesn’t mean you can’t choose love regardless.
When it comes to choice, it’s the intention that matters most. Ultimately, choice sourced in love can only ever win. Even if you make a boo-boo choice, if your intentions are well-meaning, that alone impacts the energy and outcome of your choice. It’s better to be wrong for the right reasons than right for the wrong reasons. And let’s not forget, on the other side of any choice, you can make another choice too.
In terms of specific choices, how do you make an optimum one?
