It’s true. You are entirely up to you.

You make your own choices. Your actions are your very own. You choose what you say or what you don’t say. You choose to be a blessing or a curse. You choose to break the law or obey the law. You choose to hurt or heal. It’s all entirely up to you.

You see, we all have the free will to excuse ourselves from that reality by blaming others for our choices, make excuses and mislead others by calling meditated bad decisions a “mistake.” We have the choice to conduct ourselves with or without integrity. In the end, it’s a personal decision. While we have the free will to try our best to excuse ourselves from or manipulate the reality, it doesn’t change the reality. Not one bit.

While you may be able to do anything you wish, doing any and everything isn’t a wise choice. (1 Corinthians 10:23).

What we then have to ask ourselves is, “Is my choice going to negatively effect me, my family or anyone else?” If it will cause a negative effect in the present or future, can you own that decision without pointing the finger or placing the blame on someone or something else? We can’t escape the consequences of life. Sometimes those consequences are immediate and sometimes (usually the hardest) consequences are delayed.

So then knowing that you are entirely up to you, how will you positively change your world?

"You are entirely up to you"

This is a great way to live life and ensure you achieve your goals. this concept is also the underlying concept in Buddhism where you own up to your actions. I do believe that uUnderstanding this allow you to take control of your life. 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I appreciate it. I have a goal to keep this thought in my mind. It will help me take ownership and not feel like I don't have a choice in life situation. We do. We always have a choice.
