Safe Choice, Scary Choice, No Choice – Which Do You Choose?

scary choice safe choice


There are all sorts of choices to be made – every hour and minute of the day.

Have you ever had days, months, years when you felt that you didn’t have any choice?

Every choice was being made for you.  Your destiny was pre-determined and you are just following along the already well-worn path.

You can’t choose to feel good – you just FEEL bad.

You can’t choose to reach for a good thought – you just think negative thoughts.

You can’t choose to be grateful for anything – there is NOTHING to be grateful for!

You can’t choose ANYTHING – you are who you are and that is JUST the way it is!

Any of that sound familiar?  I know it does for me.

I spent many years living on auto-pilot, reacting through life using the inadequate tools I inherited.

Believing that I was just a depressed person and that was the way it was.

Believing that I had to attempt to live with it – rather than work hard to rise above it.

Believing that I was alone on a deserted island on an uninhabitable planet.


We are NOT alone – there is love and support abounding if only we will CHOOSE to see it.

EVERYTHING can change – and for the better too!

We CAN make choices that bring more good into our life.

We are NOT limited to only using those inadequate tools we were equipped with.

We CAN make better choices – and in doing so, the world we live in will change for the better as well.


Some of those new and better choices will be SCARY.  But the benefits far outweigh the fear.

And once you push through that fear it dissolves rather quickly.


Think of choosing to go out for a walk in the sunshine instead of staying on the couch with the curtains shut staring at the TV.

Think of choosing to help a neighbor  instead of wallowing in the pool of negativity running through your own head.

Think of choosing to eat a healthy lunch (salad maybe?)  instead of a heavy meal of processed food that will lay in your stomach like a brick.

Think of choosing to be grateful for something – anything (breathing?) – instead of continuing the endless diatribe of everything that is wrong.

I KNOW you can do it!  

With every choice we have the opportunity to move towards feeling better, feeling good – heck, feeling BLISS!

I learned to make better choices with the 4-G’s of Feelin’ Good (Goin’, Greens, Givin’ and Gratitude).

They are little things – little CHOICES – that I make every day.  Over time all those little good choices have made a world of difference in my life.

I wrote up a little Action Guide to help you get started with them too.  Grab your free copy when you sign up for free updates here.

Over to you…
