Monday Thoughts: The Consequences 


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.

  1. Great post, Sylvester! It is not the choices we fear but the possible and (even worse) unknown consequences that come with them. I think the most difficult decisions are those which affect other people’s life and the question “Do I have the right to do it?” blinks heavily in our minds. But yes! As you said, life is a constant change and as long as we don’t intentionally harm others we should follow that inner voice and go for it. The important thing is to always take responsibility for our decisions. Then we still keep the ground beneath our feet when even the earth starts shaking!

    • We have the right to make any decision we want. Some situations call for more sensitivity than others. If we find ourselves in a point in our life that we are not happy or going through the motions because we have become conditioned to them, then it is our decision to make that choice to stay put or change direction. Some people want to remain sticks in the mud because they feel like to have when everyone around doesn’t mind staying in the mud, but if it’s not what you want anymore then leave the mud. Thank you for your comment.

  2. So very true Sylvester, I fully agree 🙂

  3. Wise words! Let’s be in the moment and make choices – including sharing this blog post 😉

  4. Powerful message Syl. Being an impetuous personality I can surely relate to this.

  5. I needed this today. Than you Syl. I came here for a reason I knew it. Amazing these choices and their consequences I wish those we love realized this. I think the hurt that comes from careless choices is most painful but also gives knowledge to the one that was hurt. I can’t say I would do that again risking I think in love we always risk something. This is beautiful Thank you have a wonderful day my friend! 🙂 ~ღ~
