What follows is an excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts.
Personal development is an ever-evolving process of making more and better distinctions about who you are and what you want. Life is about choices and those choices accumulate to define the path of your life’s journey. You choose again and again as a normal part of daily life.
You may not realize it, but you can even make choices each day about how you want to feel. Clarity about how you want to feel will assist you tremendously in making satisfying choices with near-perfect consistency on a day-to-day basis.
If you decide to do something, then find yourself there unhappy, it’s good to redirect your thoughts. Find something to appreciate. Maybe the only thing to enjoy about it is that you are doing what you decided to do. You are being true to your word and previous intentions for yourself. That feels good. Focus there while you decide what you want next.
