Whenever you find yourself faced with an infinite number of choices, give yourself a moment to pause and ponder. Sometimes, it is tricky because one move can either lead you in the right direction or put you under unfavorable circumstances.
Life is not perfect but you can always put your best foot forward.
Choose to see the good even if your world falls apart.
Everyone struggles. Everyone makes mistakes. And everyone fails. And when you are faced with these realities, remember that you are not a prisoner of your flaws and failures. It may be hard to start over, but there is a silver lining in every dire situation. You will get through it.
Choose to see the light even if it flickers in the darkness.
You may be inevitably stuck on the ground because you cannot see where you are headed, but you need to keep going. Fight your inner battles and the uncertainties coming your way with that light inside you. Hold it until it becomes a torch and sheds light to your world.
Choose to love even if you have been broken before.
Your life does not revolve around this person who caused you so much pain and trouble. And if you think you are unloved and unworthy because of this heartbreak, look around you. You have God, your family, and true friends who love and care for you. Give that genuine love to yourself and people who never left you.
Choose to forgive even if you are in a state of distrust.
Shut down the misconceptions about forgiveness, such as self-betrayal and condoning the offender because you need healing. Truthfully, in order to heal, you must learn to forgive. It does not have to happen overnight but you should allow yourself to live peaceably because you deserve it.
Choose to learn even if you feel like giving up.
In every good and bad experience, there will always be lessons to learn. These lessons are your guide in improving yourself and maintaining the right perspective towards sound decision-making, not just for yourself but also for others.
Choose to move forward even if you are devastated.
After crying and having sleepless nights, it is time to leave what is heavy behind and build upon what is left. Be optimistic and embrace a new you, a new day. You have a beautiful story to continue, a story worth living for because better days are coming. Choose what’s meaningful when it comes to letting go and moving on.
Choose to be happy even if it is hard.
Make a conscious effort to let go of the things that repeatedly break you and hinder you from realizing that you are more. You are amazing with your God-given gifts. You are blessed with opportunities meant for you. Regardless of the circumstances, you can always find your way to happiness.
Choose what’s meaningful in life.
Choose to put that smile back on your face even if you have been hurt. Be strong enough to choose the right people. And choose yourself. Because from there, you learn, you heal, and you grow into a better version of you.
