In reading a friend’s Facebook post about the state of his life at present, I was reminded of something I posted on my previous blog in April of 2016. I wanted to share it again here, because I feel that it is so important to realize we always have the power to choose.
This is excerpted from one of my all-time favorite writings,”The God Memorandum” which is found in the book The Greatest Miracle in the World by Og Mendino.
Just as it says in this passage, we have power, it was given to us by our Creator. The greatest power we were given is the power of free will – the power to choose. Everything depends on what we do with that power, the choices we make for our lives.
We have the power to make good choices that will lead to happy and fulfilled lives. Equally important, by reassessing our choices, we have the power to implement change in our lives, to choose a new direction – to choose all the things we were meant to be from the very beginning.
Stop making excuses. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Never believe for one moment that you do not have the power to change your life; you have had it all along… all you have to do is claim it.
Note: If you haven’t read The God Memorandum in it’s entirety, I urge you to do so here. It’s beautifully presented in slide-show form. It will change the way you look at your life.
