Choose to LIVE HEALTHY - Living healthy does not mean that you are always on a diet, rather, that you are choosing to take care of the one body you have. Healthy living is making good decisions to maximize your physical abilities. When the body is healthy the mind will follow.
Choose to LOVE YOURSELF - We have all been in situations where we have been hurt while in love. Someone we love, doesn’t love us in the same way. We were created to love and be loved. But there is a reality about love and it is this; You cannot love another person unconditionally unless you deeply love yourself. Conversely, you cannot accept love from another person unless you love yourself.
Choose to BELIEVE in yourself - Believing in yourself is having faith and confidence that you are worthy and deserving of accomplishing your dreams. Believe that you are not your past, you are not what other people think of you, you are made for greatness.
Choose to DREAM - In the busyness of life, it is nearly impossible to dream. Many of us are working Mothers and we have put our own lives and dreams on the back burner. By doing so, we have lost site of our potential. We have lost site of our purpose. We ALL have been created to accomplish great things. Choose to make your dreams a reality.
Choose to FORGIVE - Forgiveness will set you free. When you forgive you will break free from the hold of how someone wronged you. Your mindset will shift from being a victim to becoming a survivor. Just because you forgive someone, doesn’t mean that you have to forget what they did. You may never forget, BUT forgiveness will take back emotional power that is making you hold onto the pain.
Choose to MAKE SMART DECISIONS - (don’t be dumb) - Everyday we are faced with choices. We ALL know right from wrong, really we do. Here is a great example; We all love dessert, but is it the best for us? That is an easy answer! But we all make the choice to indulge in dessert even when we know we shouldn’t.
Choose to BE YOURSELF - Why is that so hard sometimes? Why do we spend so much time being something we are not? Why do we exert so much energy trying to be someone else? The sooner we accept ourselves exactly the way God made us, the quicker we will reach our potential! The quicker we will become the person God intended us to be.
Choose ONLY QUALITY PEOPLE - If you want to live an extraordinary life you MUST surround yourself with extraordinary people. Vow to only allow quality people in your life. The kind of people that have the level of success you desire.
Choose HAPPINESS - Happiness is an inside job. There is so much truth to this statement. Money cannot buy happiness. A new car cannot provide happiness. A new pair of shoes cannot provide happiness (well maybe for a brief moment). A spouse or another human being cannot make you happy. In order for a person to be truly happy, one must first love themselves from the inside out. Which leads me in to #10 JOY.
Choose JOY - Joy sincerely comes from within. You will feel JOY when you have found peace within yourself.
