...have always scared me. Just to be honest here.
It has been safer to live my life choiceless. The victim. Being controlled by everyone around me or what I think they think of me.
Lately, though, God has been challenging my thinking. My husband and I have been doing this parenting/relationship series that talks about being a powerful person.
Powerful people always have a choice.
Powerful people can't control anyone but themselves.
This thinking has revolutionized my parenting, my marriage, my relationships outside of my family, etc. etc. etc....
I feel like I'm being turned inside out and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The quote from todays Healthy Reflection gives me goose bumps!
"Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made." -Wayne Dyer
It makes me aware of how the little things add up. Calories, minutes, pennies, momentum.
Hmmm....makes me ponder.
