Choose to take control

How often do you find yourself lying awake at night, or waking in the early hours, dwelling on something that’s worrying you?  Going over and over in your head all the options and possible outcomes, seeing blocks and obstacles in your path.  This is a choice.  The issue may be a very real one, butContinue reading “Choose to take control”

Pick a choice between one and ten….

Have you got a list of choices?  Choices you’ve been planning to make for a while now; perhaps a long while?  Sometimes it can feel overwhelming – and not knowing where to start can result in not starting at all.  Those choices go un-made or ignored, the progress is stalled or the inevitable is delayed.Continue reading “Pick a choice between one and ten….”

Choose to learn

When did you last learn something new?  Not just a new idea that you overheard in good conversation, but real learning of a new skill or learning how to become great at something you’re good at?  This week, I am choosing to spend two days on a Social Media programme – learning new skills andContinue reading “Choose to learn”

Choose to enjoy your four day week

We just had a lovely long weekend in the UK.  Fabulously relaxing and four days of time for ourselves.  Feeling refreshed?  This time, choose to continue with that feeling; rather than returning to work today and fretting about how much you now have to do in a four day week – enjoy it.  Allow allContinue reading “Choose to enjoy your four day week”

Choose what you see

Starting each day by looking in the mirror as we get ready to face the world, can be a negative experience – if we choose to let it be.  We can choose to look at the bits that frustrate or depress us or we can choose to see what others see.  When our friends orContinue reading “Choose what you see”

Choose a magnificent Monday

Each new week brings opportunity and new choices. How we approach the choices and challenges depends on our attitude and we can choose this too. This week, despite a challenge with my health, I am choosing a magnificent Monday. There will always be things in our lives that are less than perfect, things that challengeContinue reading “Choose a magnificent Monday”

Choosing Accountability

Making choices and sticking to them takes commitment.  It is so easy to doubt ourselves and talk ourselves out of choices as we listen to those old voices inside, telling us we can’t or we won’t.  A great way to stick to our choices is to get accountability for them.  An accountability buddy that weContinue reading “Choosing Accountability”

Are your choices good for you?

“I said I would do it so I’m doing it” my friend told me as I helped her with the blisters on her feet at the weekend.  She has been training for a 10K run for charity and her feet are a wreck!  She is a determined lady; someone who is proud of making toughContinue reading “Are your choices good for you?”

Choose your mood for the week

As Monday beckons, what mood will you choose for your week ahead?  Will you have a week driven by positivity and promise?  Perhaps a week to be bold and flirtatious or shy and alluring?  How about innovative and perceptive?  They all sound good to me, yet so often the anticipation of Monday morning impacts ourContinue reading “Choose your mood for the week”

My first choice is usually the right choice

You know that feeling you get about someone or something – that gut feeling that tells you “this feels right” or, on occasion “this feels wrong”; that’s your “choice mechanism”.  And more often than not, I find mine serves me well.  The trick, of course, is to learn to listen to what it’s telling us! InnerContinue reading “My first choice is usually the right choice”
