Our decisions

People often complain that something is happening to them or something is not happening at all. The decision we make are shaping our lives. Be proud of your decisions. Take them so you can be proud of them.

Ultimately, we are responsible for the shape our lives assume. It is us that are responsible for bad or good karmic experience in the end. So, start now. Start to take control of your life and decisions you are making!

Holding anything or anyone responsible for your life choices is a sign of a weak mind. Think about it. We say: It's the situation or it's someone's fault, when we do or don't experience something. There is no fault. There are decisions and consequences. If we notice that there is something wrong happening in our lives it is most likely time to change the steps in the dance of life. Repeating the same steps and expecting to land in the different place is a wrong assumption. When you blame life for anything you give up your power. You loose the control over the ship and you crash on the rocks. There are two decisions you can make right now. You can let the ship drift or you can keep it on course.

However, it comes at the price. The price we have to pay for the experience we gain. Making decisions does not come cheap but the better you are at it the cheaper it gets. The only way to get better at something is by practice and that is no different when it comes to making life's choices.

It is all in your hands and now is the time to act.
