Not only do our choices shape our life, but our life is truly a reflection of them.
You can believe me when I tell you that whoever tells you otherwise, still doesn’t take full responsibility of their choices. For those people, it is easier to believe that the reason for their sadness, anger, rage, helplessness is from „outside“.
Those people live with the belief that everyone else is to blame for their imperfect life, poor relationships with family and friends, failures they had or still go through, a failing marriage, unhappiness at work and other things.
There are many excuses for not accepting the responsibility for your own choices. They become an escape and routine. And I am sick of them.
Every person, in every moment has the choice to get out of the trap that’s holding them back, which are usually the beliefs that have been imbedded in the mind from the past. Beliefs, such as thinking that it is okay to be in a bad relationship, because of the fear of being alone; that it is better have a job in which you don’t make enough money out of fear of not finding a new, better paid job and other reasons… Those are all your choices.
Everyone has the choice to be happy, loved and successful on their very own journey through life.
It’s sad that not enough people realise that everything that is happening to them is the result of one’s spiritual state.
Only when you understand that you will be able to change something about your life. To say that you’ve had enough. To say that you want a change. To accept responsibility. To not put the blame on someone else. Because, let’s be honest, it’s never up to somebody else – it’s always up to you.
I had been in situations where I had to make very important decisions many times. One of those was deciding whether I should continue studying here in Banja Luka or take the opportunity to go abroad. It was my choice to stay here. And I have no regrets at all, because it was the best decision I had ever made.
Studying economics turned out to be a huge mistake after about a year. I was neither happy nor satisfied. I had completely lost my motivation to continue in that field. However, that was my own choice and I couldn’t and didn’t blame anyone for it or the consequences. And as it turned out, that decision lead me to straight to that I really love to do: Journalism.
There are many more situations like that, but the point is always the same: I am aware that my life is a reflection of my choices. And I have learned to take responsibility for them.
For this life lesson I have to thank my parents, because it was them who thaught me that there is always a choice in life and it comes with the right to choose.
And my choice is to be happy. Grateful. And to live my life in the best possible way that is also in accordance with my soul and who I truly am.
I wish the same to all you my dears.
Lots of love,
