Happy new month Olives, it’s the first day of the beautiful month of November which reminds us that the year is almost coming to an end. This might just be the right time to cross check your bucket list for the year 2016 and try to do those things which haven’t been ticked yet. This year has been quite adventurous for me, my choices have made this year particularly interesting. I have had the good, bad and ugly experiences and they’ve all taught me tremendous lessons that I intend to use.
One of the best decisions so far has been taking my love for blogging a notch higher, and sharing my writings with the rest of the world. If there is one blaring thing I have learnt from this, it’s the power of choices. The truth is there are always options to choose from, so there is never a time when you don’t have a choice.
A lot of people feel like they’ve been boxed into a particular path probably because they weren’t aware of the other choices available to them. The revelation of such knowledge requires some level of sensitivity and consciousness. Others know they have options to choose from but they become confused due to probably numerous choices or other issues. Making the right choices is very important, because every choice we make has consequences which we must bear; sometimes these consequences rub off on others around us, so yes, a careful examination of options before choosing is very important.
Below are some questions you can ask yourself to carefully examine if you are making the right choice or not:
- Does it make me happy?
- Does it build up and add value to my life?
- Would it directly or indirectly cause havoc to the society?
- Does this choice bring me peace?
- Would I be proud of this choice five or ten years from now?
- Does it add value to humanity?
In all make sure your choices promote good and fight evil.
I love you all, till next time .XoXo.
