We all have the ability of choice in our lives, all though it may not always be clear, most of the time we have a choice. Something that I have come to terms with is that I have the choice to make my life a whole lot more fun and enjoyable if I choose to. There are so many things that I want to do but I choose not to because I use common excuses like time, transport, money etc when in many cases there are ways around that. I usually blame my bad mood on the day, but I never really look back and think "Maybe I'm not surrounding myself with the right people" in that aspect, I have a choice. I either carry on surrounding myself with the people who I feel are bringing me down, or I move away from them and try find people who will bring out the best in me. Life is about choice, we can choose our happiness and ultimately we can choose where we go in life. When you believe in yourself and your choices in life, you beam with confidence. I believe that the choices we make shape us and in our youth we have to grasp these opportunities and realize that we have the choice to take them and make the most of them.
I have lately been choosing to do things that I enjoy doing, and to also focus whole heatedly on my school work, because I know that I have a choice to either do well in my schooling or to struggle.
Sometimes we overlook the fact that we actually have so much control over our experiences in life and simply by making a conscious effort to realize that you are in control of your life and have the power of choice can really influence one's happiness.
