Choose your view

In Monday’s blog I suggested you choose your theme tune for the week – a piece of music that helps set your mood.  Today, I would like you to add something visual to the mix.  Choose an image that helps you focus on a dream or a goal, something that connects you with a choiceContinue reading “Choose your view”

Choose to put your feet up

Sometimes we struggle on when it is not the right thing to do.  Sometimes we convince ourselves that we simply “can’t miss this appointment” or that “they’ll think less of me if I take a day off”.  Sound familiar?   And when we hear this little voice in our head, we make a choice; often theContinue reading “Choose to put your feet up”

Choose Today

Choice can feel uncomfortable and challenging and we often choose to put off making difficult choices.  Too often people talk about regrets which are really choices they didn’t make.  As my husband celebrated his 45th birthday last week, we reflected on the lack of regret in our lives and how even the choices that hadContinue reading “Choose Today”

Today I choose to be….

Today I choose to be positive and up-beat.  Today I choose to see the best in everyone in my life and allow them their moment in the spotlight.  Today I choose to love my life and be grateful for every moment – even the difficult ones.  Today I make my own choices about my attitude,Continue reading “Today I choose to be….”

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 a positive “NO”

Saying “no” to people can feel uncomfortable – or even impossible, largely because we see it as a negative response.  We can choose to see it as a positive when we look at it from a different perspective.  It is a choice and one we can make more easily when we understand that a “no” canContinue reading “Choose a positive “NO””

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”

What if my choice impacts you?

Sometimes the choices we make will appear to impact other people in a way we are uncomfortable with; indeed our fear of upsetting them can prevent us from making the choice at all.  When we remember that it is their choice how it impacts them, we give ourselves permission to make choices without that burden.Continue reading “What if my choice impacts 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”

Saturday Choices

Saturdays are always about choices for me.  Will I relax and recover, physically, from my week, or will I get those “little jobs” done.  You know the ones, the housework and laundry, the windows that haven’t been cleaned in an age, the car that could do with a good wash. What choice will I make,Continue reading “Saturday Choices”
