For some of you, that question brings up a feeling of panic:
Wait, am I?
For others, it inspires instant rebellion:
What are you going to do about it if I’m not?
Whoa! Hang on there…
I’m certainly not here to tell you ANY rules, I’m here to help you CLAIM the ones you choose as your own.
Here’s what I mean:
We get so caught up in our day to day life, that I think sometimes we forget that we are adults and that we have choices. Some of our responsibilities can be so heavy that we feel like we have no choice… but we ALWAYS DO.
You could always choose to walk away. You could always choose to say no. You could even choose to give up. You always have the choice.
Sure, every choice has a consequence, and some of them feel dire. But the choices you make today, right now, even those that help you fit in and to follow rules given to you, those also have consequences.
So if you ever feel like grumbling because you are always being told what to do, or feel forced to make certain decisions, remember that you are choosing that path. You are choosing it because the consequences are the easiest to deal with, because you want to have other options in other areas of your life, or because you have let go of your personal power. There are a myriad of reasons why we choose, even subconscious ones, but we are always choosing.
So let’s claim our choices! We choose our circumstances. We choose our steps. We choose our path.
We choose our rules.
Life is for living.
Don’t let rules in your life
take your personal power.
You are an adult.
You make a choice.
