Wrong Choices, Right Choices

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

I do not set out in my life to make wrong choices, but I do. That's life. I recently had a conversation in which I was mentioning the my husband and I were beginning to think about the next step in our lives. We thought we had it figured out, but there were some things that did not feel quite right, even though I wanted them to be! She said that she has run up against roadblocks at various times in her life and found out later why...because there was a better place to be. Wrong choices can lead to right choices. I have never thought this way before. Instead of beating myself up for my wrong choices, focus instead on what I learned from them. After all, my huge amount of wrong choices led me to right choice of being here with you! emoticon emoticon

    There's a learning opportunity in every wrong choice. If we choose to take the lesson from it going forward then we can start making right choices. They say life is from B - D, Birth to Death, but what comes between B and D and fills our entire life? C. Choices! Here's to making the best ones we can every day! emoticon

  Sometimes it comes down to process of elimination.

  What insight! You could beat yourself up about the 'wrong' choices but....what would be gained? ALL things happen for a reason. emoticon
