If only...


“If only…the saddest words in the English language.” ― Kristan Higgins

“If only…”  These two words paired together create one of the saddest phrases in the English language.


Spider-man, Wonder Woman, Black Panther, etc. Amazing superheros no doubt! However, you want to know a legit superpower you have right at your very fingertips? Choice! That's it! Choice is a legit superpower. You and I have the power to make hundreds of choices each day. Oh...then there is the weakness of the superpower choice...bad choices. Yikes!


Great Choices To Make


1. Choose you! I wore my COVID-19 mask the other day for the first time. I hated wearing it. Why? It fogged up my glasses, it pulled on my ears and it just felt weird. When I got home, I took off my mask and immediately felt so much better. Why? Sometimes we wear a "mask" and hide the amazing person we truly are. Wearing a "mask" can wear you out.  Faking who you really are is fatiguing.  The most exhausting activity is pretending to be who you know you aren’t. Choose to be the amazing you!


2. Choose gratefulness! A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a few seconds to think about what a blessing it is to simply be alive and healthy. Remember, I love to say "All's well that BEGINS well. Begin your day by choosing gratefulness! I once did a gratitude list and in about an hour I had written down over 100 things I was grateful for!


3. Choose to take action! What you do today matters tomorrow and into your future. Sometimes the happiest and most successful people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination. People who choose to not procrastinate, they’re full of drive, passion, and productivity.  You can be too.  A huge part of success in life is about action, action, action.
