Choices: The Good Ones Don't Come Easy!

What do you do every day? Wake up. Go through the motions. See your friends. Go to work. Exercise. Eat. Relax. Then one day something happens. Your world is flipped upside down. You find yourself in your room with the lights off sulking or maybe hiding from life by having way to much over compensating fun. We have all been there. Heart Break. Change. Suddenly we see the world in a different view.

What I have come to find is this is what makes life beautiful. Change. Sadness. Sorrow. Heartbreak. Disappointment. Sometimes we take it and say "This is how things must be, I can't change them". That is where the beauty comes in. We can change how things are! We are all the rulers of our own destiny!

Everyone has a comfort zone. Nothing really changes. You know what to expect. Then one day something happens. That little glass box you have been loafing in is shattered. Then a fork in the road forms right in front of you. A choice and it is an important one! You can choose to take the easy road or the hard road. The easy road means sulking time! Lets get down with the sadness. Boggy with it! (That is much to happy wording for sadness) This road is basically saying you win world. I'm just giving up on being happy right now. To be honest I have taken this road many times. It is never fun. Then there is the hard road. This road looks like its straight up a mountain, but this road means your taking control of your life rather than letting it happen to you. You have to do things you hate to do. You have to look on the bright side while it seems dark. You have to realize that unhappiness is a temporary gig and you don't have to take it.

I recently had this choice placed before me. So I know how it feels and may have some insight on the subject. What makes or breaks the hard road is vision. You have to be able to see what is at the end of that hard road to make it work. It is easy to feel defeated, but you have to push through it. You have to make that right choice. What making the right choice does for you is simple. It puts you in a place where you can grow and change. A place where you can expand your comfort zone, and a place where you become who you are.

So you can take the hard road or the easy road. The thing is if you take the easy road now you will end up on the hard road later. I'd rather take the hard road. Don't for get that the hard road is, well.... HARD! Some days you will want to quit and punch a wall or scream at the top of your lungs or clean your entire house at 4 in the morning! It's OK! Just remember why your doing it. Also cleaning your house might be a good thing!

So let's conquer this life! I know it has kicked me around for awhile! So I'm going to stop putting things off and stop letting things get me down. It's time to turn a new leaf. Who is with me!?
