It is important to remember that choices can be fun, light-hearted and a joy to make. I started my day with my usual choice – Lavazza Rossa or Lavazza extra creamy? That’s my kind of choice! 😉 The second big choice of my day landed in my lap as I sat with my coffee to start #thebreakfastclub duty on Twitter – Pickle decided she wanted a cuddle and I had to choose whether to be a couple of minutes late – that’s my kind of choice!
When we acknowledge how many choices we make in a day, often on auto-pilot, we start to see how good we are at making them. Yesterday I had a seriously tough choice – a scone with jam and cream or a chocolate cup cake – which should I choose to go with my afternoon cuppa? I admit, the chocolate won (well, of course!) and I thoroughly enjoyed the choice. I made that choice and I lived (happily) with the consequences. So, surely other choices should be easy to make.
When we label a choice as “tough” or “challenging” we are making a choice to make it that way. Looking at choices and seeing they are ours to take, at the long-term impact they will have for us and for others and at how easily we make choices which benefit us, we can choose a new approach. Every time I am presented with a choice, I say to myself “now that’s my kind of choice!” it instantly lifts my spirits and reminds me of the amazing results that are in my life because of past choices.
