I’ve been thinking about what I want to do today, frowning at the thought of some of the things on my list and thinking that I don’t have a ton of freedom in what to do if I want things to go a specific way.
Randomly, I opened a brainstorm doc I previously wrote and came across this:
You always, always, always have a choice. You may not like it, but you have it.
I love/hate these sorts of reminders that pull me up short. I was getting all comfortable in my self-righteous, “that’s too hard to do” state, thinking about what I can’t (or don’t want) to do. Damn you, note to self that I wrote for myself.
I do have a choice here. I always do. I may not like it in the moment, but I always, always have a choice — in what I do, how I approach things, my mindset.
