The spark that ignited my blog: A free will to choose or the power of choice

October 17th, 2009 § 0 comments

Last night I woke up half asleep. In that fuzzy moment a clear thought came to me, “God gave us a free will to choose, you can be happy no matter what“. Half recalled from the Bible and half from a book’s title by Richard Carlson. This new found energy, a freedom of choice in my attitude and feelings, flooded me in the middle of my sleep. The two odd combination reminded me, many years ago, of a similar experienced. During a speech class, in junior college, I heard my favorite quote “Attitude” by Charles Swindoll. It made a 180° shift in my perspective on how I should face life. “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” It hit me deep in the heart. In that moment I really wanted to live with this attitude.

Slowly the want to change faded in and out of my mind. Many years have past and I am still bond by my old ways of thinking and doing things. In fact it’s been over 10 years and I have not progressed. My procrastination paired with my lack of memory held me from learning from my past mistakes. Today, I choose to take action by focusing and recording the positives daily. I aim at transforming one thought at a time. This blog will serve as a personal collection of all positive influences, reminding me, all that’s goods in my life. And, so, I start with this thought from my sleep.
