You have a Choice!


Lately I have been thinking about the choices I have made in my life.  The choice to my true happiness and for me to feel loved.  I have to admit that there have been too many times I have made what I thought was the right choice, only to find that it was filled with all the things that were not good for me.  At the time it seemed so right.  You know why you choose to have a relationship with someone, because you thought this person was going to hold the key to your happiness.

I know that I have made some amazing choices that have thoroughly enriched my life.  Every single day you are bombarded with making decisions.  When a doctor looks at a loved one and tells them that they have cancer, you never thought that would be a part of your life.  I once had a very dear pastor tell me, “I do not think that the cancer was ordained by God, but what you do  with it is ordained by God.”  Right then and there you have a choice to make.  Are you going to give in to all those feelings of loss or are you going to go make some memories and follow God.  Thank goodness the choice my late husband and I took for ourselves and for our family and friends was to follow God.  Often times I have thought about how vital that one decision made in my life and the people around me.  It taught me that some things just happen to you, but you have a choice on what you do with it.  You hold the key to whether you are going to be happy, sad, loving, angry, bitter, or forgiving when something happens to you.  You have to be very true to yourself and know what is in your best interest at the time.

Never did I think that as I navigated through learning to love again, I would have to make the tough decision to let go of the things that were making me unhappy.  It is not easy to end a relationship that at one time made you so happy, but now is filled with two people that want different things.  To choose love over fear and and be absolutely honest of who you are and what makes you feel loved.  When I was that honest with myself, I was then able to make the sweetest choice to allow an opportunity to have the right person come into my life to love.  To have absolute faith in what God wants for me.

I hope for now I have made the right choice to love myself, but most of all the amazing friends and family that are a part of my life.  I will continue to choose God’s will over my will.  To have absolute faith that he will give me the desires of my heart, because he loves me and you that much.  I choose to remove frustration and replace it with peace!  I choose to be joyful and have a new song in my heart.  We all hold the key to our own happiness.  My hope is that you will join me in choosing to follow God, to love yourself and most of all to open your heart to love others too!
