Becoming aware.

Life is a journey comprised of many steps that take us down a winding road of constant change. Each day, we are provided with many opportunities that allow us to become a better person. One moment we are presented with an opportunity to react differently when someone in our life rubs us the wrong way; on another day we may find ourselves wanting to walk away from a particular circumstance but are not sure if we can. Eventually, we may find ourselves stuck in a rut that we can never seem to get out of. We continue to make the same choices over and over again because we don’t know how to choose otherwise. Rather than moving us forward, we are in a seemingly never-ending circle where our actions and choices lead us nowhere but to where we've already been. If however, we can become aware of what is happening, we can take the first step to change because we can’t make a change unless we are aware of our need to change in the first place. We can then begin to understand why we are doing what we are doing. We also begin to realize that, just as we are the root cause behind our behavior, we are also the one responsible for any changes that we want to happen. Rather than being stuck in a repetitive cycle where there is no escape, we begin to see that we play a hand in creating our lives. Whether we are aware of it or not, our behaviors and choices are always ours to make. Our past and our present no longer have to dictate our future, we are free to move beyond our old limits, make new choices, and take new actions. What do you think?

Point to poder,once again....*smile*.....Yes we do find ourselves at the cross roads almost everyday,and very often it is in our hands to chose the right path.Sometimes we may take awrong turn,sometimes we may be daring and ruthless and lucky too..Any way the outcome only helps us to be careful the next time and to emerge stronger at the next cross roads. But I totally disagree that the past and present do not have to dictate our future.There are certain commitments and certain responsiblities in life which we have to give priorities to when deciding on our future. Btw any news from Alamode?She is not answering your discussions now?I really miss her.......

Hi Rose, Thank you for commenting, and I agree that there are are certain commitments and responsibilities that we must give priority to. I did advice Alamode that you had returned here, but know that she is not as active anymore. Blessings.

Every day is a fresh new start ,and is up to us to make the right choices ,or the wrong choices in life. We always have a new chance for a new beginning ,or we can continue to follow the wrong path. Is really up to us to be happy or miserable.

Hi Mirita, Thank you for commenting. It's sad that so few of us realize this when we are young. Blessings.

I totally agree with you. I believe that we, no one else, are the creators of our own world. Pointing the finger at circumstances and other people will never change the things you aren't happy with.
