You get to choose


Brooke – in at least one of the answers where someone was asking if she should do X or Y, you said ‘you get to choose’. That phrase has been rolling around in my mind since reading that. I realized that I don’t think I get to choose how my life goes. That sounds really bad to me, but it does give me a starting point to make some real changes. How’s this model:

C: life the way it is now including relationships, job, location
T: I have a pretty good life (great relationship, good kids, good job, nice house), I should be happy. I don’t need to stand out from the crowd by trying to do anything else.
F: Resigned
A: Keep things as they are
R: Things stay like this

C: life the way it is now including relationships, job, location
T: I get to choose how I want my life to go including where I live, what work I do, how strong and lean my body is, how close I try to be to kids and family
F: Strong, goal-driven
A: Make a list of stuff to do and get to it!
R: Find new work in the location I want to move to, work on friends and family get togethers, take my work outs seriously and enjoy my gains!

Boy , does that feel better!
