Today’s world is filled with an infinite myriad of choices between was is good or bad for us. As youngsters, we have a difficult time deciding our professions or what university to attend. We struggle to choose between jobs, a company to work for, or a career path.
We have a hard time deciding whom to date, marry or be friends with, how many children we want, where do we want to live, the best financial institution, a church or spiritual group, our cars, dogs and cats, smartphones, television sets, laptops, and even the type of coffee we want to have.
Making good and wise choices from a conscious, heartfelt space requires great work, patience, presence, observation, and courage from our parts. Especially if those choices go against other people’s opinion of what is good or bad for us.
Regardless of what it is that we’re choosing on, the choices we make today are the most significant determinant of the future direction of our lives. A single decision you make today could completely change your life. That one choice you might be contemplating today could lead you to experience…
- The best romantic relationship you’ve ever had
- Retiring sooner than you anticipated
- Going on an adventure around the world
- Moving into your dream home
- Feeling much more alive, creative, and free
Or, it could lead you to experience completely the opposite; for the quality of your choices will influence the quality level of your experience.
Acknowledging that you are what you are today because of the collective result of all the choices you have made in the past, is the first step towards taking 100% responsibility for your life. It is also the best way to determine the destiny and direction of your life.
What new choices will you start making in 2019?
How will you know that you’re making the best possible choice for you?

From my heart to yours.
