No one else can decide what kind of day we are going to have. This realization is difficult for me to swallow sometimes. I don’t think I play the victim card, but I do think I like to blame others for my actions. I like to think things are out of my control and others are responsible for my actions.
But this is simply not true.
I am responsible for my actions. No one else. Me.
How this plays out is we determine how the course of the day goes. We can’t influence the obstacles that come at each day, but we can influence how we respond to them. We can determine how we react, how we respond or what we do with the obstacles that come at us. We aren’t innocent bystanders, we are active participants in every day we face. We decide how we are going to react to whait we face.
This gives us courage, knowing we are able to impact how each day goes. We have some input into whether it is going to be a good day or not.
Today, I chosen have a good day. Today, I chose to make a difference in how my day goes. Today, I decide to actively engage in my day.
What are you choosing?
