Wisdom from Diana Fletcher

At this very moment, you are creating your future.

Some people believe that life just happens and that there is nothing they can do about it. Don’t make this mistake. You will limit the abundance that you are meant to have in your life.

There are bad things that happen and there are circumstances that cannot be changed. However, in every situation, you can make choices.

If you truly want to live a good, authentic and rewarding life, you have to internalize the fact that it is your daily choices that decide how your life will turn out.

Each minute you make choices that add up to your life. You choose how you talk internally and to other people, what foods you eat and where you work. You choose everything.

Every good or bad choice you have made has led you to this place in your life.

Now that you know this, you can decide what choices you will make from now on. It is an interesting way to live, because you are forced to look beyond the obvious.

KristeneH. Thank you for pointing that out--even in the bad situations we can gain something.I think it is more empowering and satisfying to own everything we do, good or bad--no blame on anyone else.
Thanks for the comments everyone!

I love these thoughts Diana! Even in bad situations there is hope that we will learn something from them to be able to take more responsibility with similar situations in the future. You are right on, we all make our own choices and have to live with them. Thanks for the post!!

Thanks for all the comments! Gloria P., it's true that it is not easy to do. It's simple but not easy. However, as I discovered, the easy path wasn't making me happy. It was easy to just go along, being unhappy but not doing anything about it. It was difficult but worth it to take responsibility for my choices.
I appreciate all the comments about my inspiration! Diana Fletcher
