“Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.” -Unknown
Recently, I began to ask myself a simple question when making a choice, “Does this (action or non-action) help me or hurt me?” I have started using this technique for most choices I make during the day. From things as simple as putting my laundry away now or later to do I want to go to this event, to what do I want to eat or do with my day.
If the answer is “help me,” then I have the green light to move forward freely.
If the answer is “hurt me” sometimes I then choose differently. However, being a bit rebellious person, sometimes I find myself wanting to continue on the path that I have determined will “hurt me.” My next question is then, “is it worth it?”
I am learning to love myself. Someone who loves herself does not do things to hurt herself.
