We all have many abilities to do so many different things in life, but when it really comes down to it, it’s our choices that make us who we are. J.K. Rowling was right on with this thought.
Just think about it. How many times we have to make a choice throughout each day of our lives. There are the choices of what we think about things. So many times, the thousands and thousands of thoughts that come into our heads that we have to actually choose a response or another thought.
One of the other things that we have to think about and choose something is with our words. In communication with others, we have to quickly think about verbal responses. Those we have to be careful with to make sure they are the right ones, that they are understood and not something that will cause more problems.
Usually our choices of our thoughts and words will lead us to our actions, and that is what we really get judged by more than anything. We may have all the abilities in the world to do great things, but if we don’t indeed DO THEM, it doesn’t matter if we have the ability or not. I think one important item for me is that I’m figuring out the things that I truly want to spend time doing. Now the item for me to do, is to start doing those things. It’s something we all have to figure out. It’s something that is so very important because it’s not just us that are affected. It’s everyone around us. Now obviously those that are closer to us are affected a lot more than the casual acquaintances we come across on some days.
Another thing that popped into my head about this was due to so many recent events around the world. I really think that the world needs everyone to use their abilities along with their choices for making things better. So many examples of bad things, heck, down-right evil things going on around the world and it’s becoming very apparent to me that each and every one of us need to do our best at everything we do along with doing those things in the right way. Thereby, we can be setting examples for others about doing things the right way and having something to combat those bad and evil things going on around us. In everyday situations, our choices and actions do indeed affect others and if we realize this, we can make better choices and do things better knowing that they do affect others.
I want to expand this thought a little bit and I may do just that in the near future. Help me out by leaving some thoughts and ideas of your own. Thanks.
