How this year goes is your choice.

How’s your year going so far?

 
Yesterday was a bit of a scattered all over the map mess for me in some ways. And yet, at the same time, it was perfect.

Multiple interruptions kept me from completing a couple of things I’d intended on doing.

BUT, those same interruptions also opened up new possibilities and sparked new ideas.

Did you catch the mindset lesson in that?

It’s a good one.
 

You get to choose how you experience the events in your life.

 
You get to choose.

Yesterday, I could have been irritated, frustrated, or even angry at having been interrupted repeatedly.

But, doing so wouldn’t have helped me accomplish what I’d wanted to do. And it would have blocked me from seeing the opportunities.

An opportunity to clarify boundaries.

The opportunity to learn.

An opportunity to be inspired.

Another opportunity to be of service.

An opportunity to let go of trying to force the world around me to fit into one preconceived idea of how it “should” be.

The events of the day didn’t change. But, how I viewed them, thought about them, and felt about them allowed me to flow through the day instead of battle the day.
 

How you feel is a choice. 
What you think is a choice.

 
You can choose to feel irritation and frustration when interruptions happen.

Or

You can choose to feel calm and ease and even excited.

It’s your CHOICE.

How this year goes is your choice.

Will it be a repeat of 2020? Or will it be marvelously and miraculously different? It’s your choice.

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
