Let’s be honest here, life can be rough.  And often it is just when you think you have the hang of things that some new frustration rears its ugly head. While we cannot predict or control much of what goes on around us, we do have the power to choose how to respond. 

It seems paradoxical, but by accepting the responsibility of choice in your life you can often experience an amazing sense of freedom.  Once we recognize that we almost always have some sort of choice in our circumstance, we no longer play the role of victims in our lives. We become empowered. 

The quote above can serve as a motto for those of us who seem to struggle with choice.  Print it, draw your own version, journal about it. Then hang it someplace where you will see it on a regular basis.  I would love to hear how you experience this change to your perspective!
