At The Crossroads
Updated: Jan 3, 2020
Each moment in time puts you at the crossroads.
Each moment, a definitive moment.
For in each and every moment, in each second, you have a choice.
You can choose left or right
You can choose yes or no
You can choose to go or stay
To respond or ignore
To avoid or confront
And each choice will set you on a course, a course of your own choosing.
No shifting blame
No room to outsource your responsibility and project it onto others.
It's the choices you make (or fail to make) that establishes the course of your life.
Establishes your relationships
How you interact with the world and how the world interacts with you.
Because ultimately, it's the choices you make that are indicative of who you are -
but thankfully not indicative of who you can be.
For all your potential is simply wrapped up in your ability to face up to reality
In your ability to confront your fear with courage,
your doubt with faith,
and weakness with strength.
Removing the chains that enslave you and setting yourself free - breaking out of your comfort zone and trusting in the journey.
For it's in your hesitation that life becomes stale and stagnant, crippling your soul and crushing your spirit.
So today, again, you’re at the cross roads.
Each moment today, again presenting you with an opportunity and each opportunity loaded with its own potential.
You’re literally one decision away from a completely different life, from taking a completely different course.
The question, as it always is - how will you respond?
Think about that for a second.
For it’s only your choices and your actions that will ultimately define you
And define the legacy that you leave behind.
