I was listening to a minister I know speak and she was pouring out so much wisdom but when she said the words CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY everything lit up inside of me.
I work for a great company but I'm not doing what I love. My attitude about going to work ranges from okay great to hell no I don't want to go. When she said choose differently, I thought what if I choose to not focus on the job but to focus on what makes me happy in my place of employment. I am choosing to not think of my job as punishment but as a stepping stone to the next opportunity. I am choosing to change my attitude and my focus. I will not focus on the negative.
Imagine how FABULOUS our lives would be if we would just choose differently. Do you want to lose weight? Then stop going down the ice cream aisle in the grocery store. Choose to not eat out every night, stay home and cook. Don't do what you've always done that doesn't work. Choose a different way to lose weight. Choose a new way to eat or a new exercise. Find you some new motivation. Stop saying you getting ready for summer when you still have the body from two winters ago. Instead choose a different season...just kidding...but you get my point, right? CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY!
Do you want to be in a solid, committed relationship but you keep ending up with losers? Choose differently! Instead of choosing the same type of dude, choose to be in a relationship with yourself! Choose you first! Then when you are ready to date don't pick the same type of guys. If your go to for dates is in your DM then perhaps you need to stop swiping and actually go out and be social. Meet some real people! CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY!
Are you constantly broke? Choose different about how you manage your resources. If you are broke because you are trying to emulate the lifestyles of the real housewives of the Potomac, stop it and try living the lifestyle of a person who has to work a real job. Choose to be on a budget and stick to it. Choose to save versus spending every single dollar on payday. CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY!
Every decision is a choice. Each choice has a consequence be it good or bad. If your choices are hurting you, keeping you in lack, keeping you in bad relationships, keeping you with low self-esteem then vow right now to CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY! The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, in the same way and expecting to get different results. Honey, the only thing I am crazy in is LOVE!
What will you choose different today?
Until next time be blessed and fabulous!
