Decide what life you live

There are times when things get on top of you. When you are bored, tired, disappointed or “fed-up” as any 3 year-old might tell you. In short, you are desperate to make a change to your life. Any change.

Start today. Make a decision that you wouldn’t normally make. It can be as simple as trying something different to cook for dinner. Choose a different route home from work. Make the decision to walk outside your front door, no matter how hard. Call that relative you haven’t spoken to in years. Buy that book on an obscure subject. Watch a documentary if you would normally choose soap operas.

There is no guarantee that you will like it. Life holds no guarantees. But you will have set off on a new path. You will have succeeded in changing the way you live, no matter how small.

“The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.” ~Flora Whittemore

Open a new door today.

    Great advice for someone who lives by rote. As for me, I totally love the life I have chosen. As a writer most of my time is spent at the computer writing … my passion.

    I like those thoughts, Lou. Time to get out of the rut of same-old, same-old.
