Every day is an opportunity to start over, to be open to new experiences, to re-evaluate and re-assess as the day unfolds. Every day holds within it small moments that if we really pay attention, we can see that these are the moments that shape our days and that we have the choice of what we allow ourselves to be filled with.
Every day we are the ones making every decision and every choice in our life. How we deal with upset, how we love ourselves, how we choose to spend our time, what we make of every day, it’s all our choice.
A couple of days ago I ordered a few things from the supermarket and it wasn’t until the next day that I realized that, the spinach the shopper delivered was not the one I ordered, it wasn’t organic and I didn’t notice and I ate it. This really upset me because I know that spinach gets heavily sprayed with toxic pesticides. There are certain vegetables and fruits that I refuse to eat unless they’re organic just because of that reason. I don’t want to put those toxic chemicals into my body, so I got very upset and I don’t know if I was more annoyed with the shopper or with myself for not noticing before I cooked and ate it.
Part of my self-care is my decision that I made to live each day with intention, to be aware of my thoughts, my emotions and the little moments that fill my days. Remembering my commitment to myself, I stopped and paid attention to what I was thinking and feeling. I realized that there is really nothing that I can do about it now and that I have a choice, I can hold onto these negative emotions, complain about it to everyone and carry this upsetting energy with me, letting it fuel the rest of the day, or, I have the choice to decide that what I’m thinking and feeling is not serving me, all I can do is be more aware next time and just let this go so I can be free to make the most of the day.
Today I invite you to remember you are the magic, you hold the power. Every day you make the choice of what to hold onto and what to let go of. And, the one sure way to make the most of every day is to know that you’re in charge of your every choice.
