Every day we are faced with decisions that affect our lives. We make decisions throughout the entire day that we don’t even notice are significant. For example, we make a decision about what to eat for breakfast. “Should I stop and pick something up on the way to work or should I wake up 30 minutes early to make something healthy to start my day off right?” The decision is yours and yours only. Different choices mean different outcomes. Maybe stopping at Starbucks every morning on the way to work benefits you for the moment and a few hours later, but think about the long run. How much money does that add up to? How much sugar is loaded into one of those? Sure, every once in a while a latte from Starbucks is a nice treat, but don’t make it a routine. Cut out what’s bad for you and what’s costing you so much money and you’ll start to see a change in the future. Will power. It’s all about your will power. Resist now, so you can enjoy later. Maybe saving up the money you could be spending on Starbucks and spend it on a nice vacation in the summer. I don’t know about you, but I prefer the vacation! Beats $5 lattes every morning.
So remember, we all make choices every day. If you choose to be in a great mood and stay positive, you’ll most likely have a good day. But if you decide that today’s not going to be so great, then that’s what you’ll receive. So keep your head up and expect to have a great day every day because life is too short to be negative all the time.
