We make choices on a daily basis. What to wear? What to eat? Should I even get out of bed today? Our waking hours are filled with so many choices, some of which are done so naturally that it doesn’t even register in our minds.
What about the choices we make that affect not only our life, but the lives of those closest to or around us. These type of choices are made for numerous reasons. A new job, a change in location, illness, death, change in relationships, etc. Regardless of what type of choice we make, there will be consequences, good or bad, beneficial and non beneficial.
We cannot steer away from the consequences of our actions, we have to face them eventually. You should not feel guilty about choices that will be beneficial to your life as long as you are not intentionally doing wrong or harming others. Life is constant change. Heck, from the moment we’re born our life is changing. As we come into an awareness about who we are and begin that search for inner peace and joy, we begin to make the choices that will get us to that point.
Is there true overall contentment within? I haven’t the slightest idea, but we can hope, make choices and take actions that will bring a steady presence of contentment as the ever changing life cycle spins.
