The Choice is Yours

I read this today in an email that a friend forwarded to me. I am posting it as a reminder for myself.

"If something is important enough to you, you will find a way. If it is not, you will find an excuse. Often, difficult circumstances can challenge you, but they can not stop you. Only you can stop you.

Others can give encouragement, can teach you and help you or they can hold you back. Only you can decide what to do with it all and what to make out of what you've been handed.
There are some roads that lead to success and others that lead to despair. The path you are on depends entirely on the path you have chosen.

Whether you see your life filled with beauty and positive possibilities, or whether you see no hope at all - Your own perception will turn out to be a self fulfilling prophecy. So which one will You choose to see?

The world which you choose to experience and the world you choose to live in is precisely the world where you will be in.

The choice is yours. "

That's kind of unnervingly apt right now, as I've been modifying my own "road".

I'm going to have to cut and paste that into my pc. Thanks for posting.

Thank You!

Absolutely perfect for what I'm going through lately.

And how are you?

Thanks for posting it; there's a lot of truth to the words you were sent. I always think that you can't always chose what happens to you, but you can certainly chose how to react and respond, and that your response is a choice.

I hope you're doing well.
