You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices. ~ Deepak Chopra
The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the buts you use today. ~ Les Brown
A thought, even a possibility, can shatter and transform us. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility. ~ Victoria Moran
Today my girls and I went on an outing downtown. They had not ridden on our local train in a really long time and there is a stop by our home, so it is very convenient to hop on and head into town. There is one store I love to visit that is full of yarn and other craft items. As someone who loves to knit, I walk in and drool. Today, as I stood in that store, I saw infinite possibilities. There were so many possibilities, it was overwhelming…. simultaneously overwhelming and exhilarating! I walked around the shop with my girls and we spoke of many things that could be created with the materials in the shop. This was NOT a shop of completed projects, the entire shop was devoted solely to POSSIBILITIES.
I realized that this shop is such a wonderful parallel for my life right now. I am looking for new challenges and learning opportunities, exploring ways to further my education and enhance my abilities as a professional. There are many roads to choose from – many wonderful roads. As I conduct my research I find more and more possibilities, seemingly endless options to enhance my professional abilities and repertoire. As I understand the extent of the options available, I must pause and express gratitude. How fortunate I am to have many options!
Once I had a friend in a similar position – she was constantly complaining – she hated having too many choices. She said to me, “I wish I was only good at one thing, like being a gifted musician or singer or mathematician. I do many things well, but do not excel in one area. If I excelled in one area only, my life path would be mapped out and I would not be stuck with all of these choices.” She struggled with decision-making and with fear that she may make the wrong choice and live for years with regret.
Today, 48 days ’til 40, I am thrilled with the amount of choices I have in my life. I will have many paths I can choose to walk down in the future. I hope and pray that I am able to make solid, healthy choices and plans that will challenge me to learn and grow and will, ultimately, benefit the populations I am serving.
