It is important to know that in every step you take, every decision you make, everything you do, you are either made or marred!
Our existence comprises of choices that we make. From taking a walk in the morning to attending your least favourite lecture, from deciding whether to take on that job to deciding when to quit, from showing up at that event to typing that application letter — you take a plethora of decisions, make choices, and bear the consequences.
Choices are everywhere. Despite factors around us affecting most of our decisions for the best or for the worst, we start learning how to choose between the options placed strategically in front of us and make decisions; sometimes not determining whether wrong or right.
The choices you make and the decisions you take have a long-lasting impact on your life. They make us special and put a bar of distinction between us and everyone else. Our lives are a series of choices we’ve made so far.
We live with those choices for the rest of our lives — and believe me when I say this, the rest of your life is a pretty long period. Whether you feel it immediately or not, your life is being shaped by the choices you are making in the present.
Whether you decide to go to college or take that course you’ve always wanted to or travel to foreign lands for a long term vacation — it’s your choice. It is all your choice! It has always been your choice!!
Pay Attention to this❗
I am writing this because I wanted to tell you that:
✅ The past is unalterable yet offers you an insight into the mistakes you made
✅ The present is a gift you need to make the best of, and the core of your future comprises each and every decision you have ever taken.
Sometimes, we make bad choices and often brim with misery and regret when we realize our mistakes. But you know… that’s part of being human.
I want you to do this👇🏼
When I flip through my diary and go over the deeds my past self had once engaged in, instead of being ashamed of who I was or what I’ve done, I want to be proud of myself and my choices. I want to be happy with what I wore, what I said, what I read, what I ate, what I listened to, and what I did.
YES! I want to be able to carry it with my ‘FULL CHEST’ like my friends would jokingly say
And this is only possible if I think before I make choices in the present.
We can’t undo the past, but we can always learn from it. Choices are the building blocks of our lives and despite all the mistakes one makes, a new day brings with itself new opportunities and a whole new world of choices.– Gift Vincent
These choices… I want you to LIVE knowing that they’ll yield and produce results soon and these results will determine whether you are Made or Marred – You Choose!
I hope this inspires you #Cheers.
