(Note: this blogpost is a bit rambling-ish. I started it while in a fibro flare… so I apologize if not everything does actually make sense. I want to share it anyway but wanted to disclose this first ;)).
I know that our Life is the result of our choices, one of this gut feeling you don’t know where it comes from.
I’m not talking only about the huge choices like which college to go after high school, but also all the teeny tiny ones that create day after day after day. This is one of my Truths. And I also know now that making conscious choices can make a big difference. Stopping, thinking (not necessarily for hours), and then making a choice. It does not mean you’ll go the best way, but it will be the result of YOUR choice.
And for me, this is important to be aware of that (and is something I teach my daughters, that they do always have a choice. They can sure do what they want, but then if the consequence is not what they expected, they need to accept it as it is the result of what they decided to do in the first place. Do I make sense ?).
And it is the same for me of course.
For example since I am a teenager, I dreamt of leaving France and discover Canada. I chose to immigrate here several years ago now.
I miss my Mom (who still lives in France) like crazy, but it was my choice to build my life thousands of miles away, so I accept that this is a negative consequence of it, but that all the positivity coming from that choice takes over most of the time (and maybe, missing her makes me love her even more, and appreciate her presence when we’re together even more).
I wrote a little poem (can you call it that ? well, I do anyway):
Love over Anger
What «Successful» feels like
To inspire and be inspired
To be in a drama-free zone
To be Happy
To raise my children in respect & compassion
To accept what Life is
To be the best Me I can be
To let go
To be Happy
To always look right in front of me
To learn from my mistakes
To see Life in technicolor
To be happy
And because the Universe is funny like that, while writing you this blogpost, my playlist (note: it contains more than 300 songs, always playing randomly), I rediscovered this song:
