Each Moment is an Opportunity: What Are You Choosing?
A stranger came into my life. He took his thumb and gently, but firmly, pushed it into my soul. He said many things to me. He said surprising things, some things that I didn't agree with, and things that made me smile. But mostly he said things that made me think, made me question the way I think, and made me more than happy to have his challenge in my life. Recently he said this:
I realize that I have to commit to love again and again, until it is a natural rhythm in my life, like each breath. Each current moment is another chance to commit to love. Each past moment is already gone, and each future moment isn't here yet. So I have to commit to love and healing in every moment of every day.
These beautiful and profound words relate to everything in life.
Each moment we have an opportunity. Each moment we get to choose love.
In this very moment there is nothing but possibility for your life. How often do we engage with the present in this way? It’s always here, right now, yet we often engage with it as if it’s fixed. We put off facing the feelings we've hidden away. We say we'll tend to ourselves later. We let our lives slip right on by.
When you're awake to your agency it's up to you to make the choices. Those choices might not feel easy, and they might not even feel good right now. Healing isn't easy and sometimes choosing love isn't easy, but it's the most important job you have.
Right now, as you read these words, you have the opportunity to make a choice that liberates you from your victimhood, your fear, and your limiting beliefs. Right now you can choose to do something to serve your life.
From there anything can happen.
What do you choose?
