Choose What You Want to Do & Do It Well
This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

The Greatest Tools in Creating Your Reality
Beliefs are choices. First you choose your beliefs. Then your beliefs affect your choices.
― Roy T. Bennett
Actions have consequences! This is what I’ve always told my children and anyone that would listen. Actions also build character. We, as human beings, have the advantage of choosing our actions. Most of us do start out with good intentions, then somewhere along the line, those intentions become corrupt or tainted. Either through experience or outside forces. Whatever the case may be, the important thing is to own your actions. This is something many find hard to do, it’s like when a child is told not to take a cookie from the jar but the minute your back is turned, they dive into that jar of cookies, then, when asked who was in the cookie jar, he /she denies the fact, even when the crumbs are lying at their feet.
With adults, it’s not that much different, because even with crumbs lying in their laps, many adults tend to deny or ignore their actions altogether unless it’s a good thing bringing them some form of accolade. They will quickly praise their success but just as quickly refuse to address their wrongdoing. Being caught gives a sense of failure, we all know, no one likes to be caught with their hand in the cookie jar. So again, a choice has to be made.
Your character is measured by your ability to own your actions, whether they are good or bad. All relationships are built on how well or rather how honest you are, long-term relationships, whether work, casual or intimate, can only be strengthened by the deciding factor of truth. You may not always like the outcome, but there is always a resolution for everything. Ignoring the issue tend makes matters worse. Honestly is highly respected, by addressing your shortcomings, it’s easy to gain trust, and people will know they can rely on you. Even if the outcome is a negative or disappointing one, at least you would be someone to be respected.
The greatest tool in creating your reality is the gift of choice. Your actions have consequences, and those actions also forge your destiny, so choose wisely.
It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
― J.K. Rowling
But until a person can say deeply and honestly, “I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,” that person cannot say, “I choose otherwise.”
― Stephen R. Covey
You are not the victim of the world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choices and decisions that determine your destiny.”
― Roy T. Bennett
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
― Theodore Roosevelt
Reality Surpasses our Imagination
Reality is never what you imagined it would be. Sometimes it’s better. Sometimes it’s worse. And sometimes it’s just different. It’s not worth wasting time and energy trying to predict how things are going to turn out. Just go with the flow and keep your eyes and ears peeled.
