No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.
The day ahead offers us choices of many kinds—some big ones, many that will affect other persons close to us, a few that will have profound effects on our destiny. But no choice, no decision we make, will be wrong. A particular decision may lead us slightly astray. Down a dead-end path perhaps—but we can always turn back and choose again.
We are seldom aware of the gravity of a particular choice at the time of making it. Only hindsight reveals the wisdom of an important choice. Nevertheless, no choice is without importance in the overall picture of our lives. And at the same time, no choice is all-powerful regarding our destiny. We are offered chances again and again for making the right choices, the ones that will most contribute to the bigger plan for our lives.
I need not worry about today’s opportunities for decision making. I will listen to those around me. I will seek guidance in the messages coming to me. I will make the choices I need to, today.
Quoted from the book Each Day a New Beginning.
We are always learning, if we make a decision that brings us more strife it is one we can learn from. Perhaps it will teach us we needed to do or say something in a different way. Perhaps it will teach us to ask a question before making a choice. If we make a decision that turns out smoothly we ask ourselves what did we do right, what can I learn about future decisions from this one?
The key is to be aware of making the choice and aware of the outcome. To THINK to take our own inventory about how that decision was made and where it brought us. Any choice can give us insight. “No choice is without importance ….no choice is all-powerful.”
As I consciously become aware of living my life, making choices, making decisions, and having a relationship with a Power Greater than Myself; As I consciously become aware of my surroundings in gratitude and consciously actively engage in my relationships, life becomes fuller. Listening and seeking guidance is choosing to consciously engage in life. ~Adrienne
