I Love Choosing!
All of my good friends know I LOVE TO ORDER food at a restaurant.
(Big Corona bummer for me, LOL! I’m guessing I’m not alone.)
I love looking at all the awesome pictures and reading the descriptions, and then just telling this genie of a person who comes to my table what I want, and the genie brings it to me!
It’s the absolute BEST! I don’t have to go to the grocery store, or spend time prepping and cooking, it just comes to me and I get to sit and enjoy awesome company and conversation while I wait. It’s pure MAGIC!
I love choosing. Knowing that I get to choose and that I have a choice is the most empowering realization I’ve ever made.
I get to choose what I think and feel. No one else does that for me.
Often when we feel overwhelmed or overburdened, it’s because we aren’t owning our choices.
My husband and I disagree about remodeling our kitchen.
It’s 20+ years old and I’d really like an update. We have the money but my husband really likes that money to be in the bank.
This used to be a big source of contention for us, but not anymore.
I would way rather choose to feel love for my husband, than be angry at him over a dumb kitchen, so I choose to love my kitchen instead.
Rather than getting annoyed when I look at it, I see it as the gift I give, to show my husband that he means more to me than anything else in the world.
I appreciate the running water that comes from our miraculous faucet. I have a range that cooks the yummiest food… and don’t even get me started on my two favorite appliances, my Vitamix and my Microwave!!! THE BEST INVENTIONS EVER!!!
I love my kitchen because of all of the incredible memories we’ve made there with family and friends. I even love the burn mark on the counter top where our son experimented with building homemade fireworks while I wasn’t home. You see, he’s got a place of his own now, and I get to think of him fondly whenever I see it.
It’s all my choice and I choose love.
I don’t have to do the laundry, or cook or clean. I don’t have to get out of bed in the morning or shower or wash the car or go to work.
I’m not saying there aren’t natural consequences if I don’t, but that it truly is a choice.
When I feel like I HAVE to do something, I make myself the victim. But when I choose it, I get to own it. And I get to feel however I want to feel about it.
I WANT my family to eat healthy food so I choose to cook (sometimes ;). I WANT us all to wear clean clothing so I choose to do laundry. I love my work and want to be successful in my job, so I choose to show up every day and give my best.
I WANT to love my life and my family, so I choose it every day.
What do you want to choose today? I hope you pick something that feels super yummy from YOUR menu.
