Monday’s Meditation: On When You Realize It’s Your Choice
There is nothing missing from your personal happiness equation.
You, as much as any person with less or with more, have the power to be perfectly content with your life right now.
You, as much as anyone, can choose to perceive every single thing in your life as a blessing. Even if that blessing arrives in the form of a lesson learned.
You have the opportunity to transform your life by focusing on what you have now that gives you joy, by seeking out every sign life is going your way. You can give great importance to the smallest affirmations of progress and goodness.
Only you control your thoughts.
Realign your mind with positivity and gratitude, and in any instant, your whole world can appear as new.
Or, you can spend your life prioritizing negativity, focusing your attention on what’s going wrong, on all the ways those around you are disappointing you, and on all the things you lack.
But you should know, if you choose the latter, you will merely perpetuate your grievances.
Complaining will earn you more complaints, feelings of lack will lead to further lack, and the sense that life is an arduous struggle, rather than a joyful experiment, will ensure continued struggle.
The choice is up to you.
