Make The Right Choices

Updated on February 13, 2013

By Making The Wrong Choices

Well the world isn't perfect and neither are we

So when we plan to do the right thing and doing the right thing

End up to be two different things

It is time to evaluate our choices and think again

Looking at our mistakes and all our faults

Seeing the good in the bad

Understanding and new knowledge will come

With this information we can once again decide

To pick a better choice than ones we have made in the past

Some day looking back and laughing at the world we have lived

Now we have to work to make it right

Finding new ways to turn are life around

Seeing our life in a different light

One positive with hope and love

There is no quick fix

No instant solution

No one way to do anything

Just a series of steps that bring us toward our goal or farther away

If we are going in the right direction than we are on the right track

Look at what we have done and continue with the great progress

If we don't feel happy and are not where we want to be

It is time

To admit to ourself

I want better

I deserve better

I will find a way to make my life better

We do not live in a bubble and are separate from the world

Each day we are influenced in some way in one direction or another

It is up to us to see where we are heading and make simple changes along the way

Nobody is a perfect guide

We might have recieved help from our families or friends

They also have their life to lead

Nobody can be in two places at once

Life requires time and energy

It is easy to let the important things in our life fade away

Finding ways to be destracted by t;v. ,movies,and on the computer with video games filled with lots of fantasy

Sooner or later we will have to look

Look closely at the life we have chosen

The endless hours of instant pleasure we spend to hide the problems that arise

It was never about being the best

Life is about living and enjoying what we have not what we can get

Little changes make a big difference

It is easier to take small steps in the right direction than none at all

So if you are like me and have taken a wrong turn or ended up at a dead end

Begin again and this time watch where you are going

See the things in life that make you feel good

Write a few down and keep them in focus

They might change over time and we have to change to

At least we are the ones making the change

We are also the person who is walking through the door

To a better life and we have come so much farther than before

      dwachira When we feel so excited and content that is when we are living the life we want to live.To often we get lost or even side tracked taking us away from our true nature.Material things don't bring us a life filled with happiness.They can clutter our mind with things and give us less time with the people we love and enjoy.A well rounded life is the best for me.Thanx so much for reading.

      DDE To often we don't look at our past decisions and see the errors in our ways.We keep on the same road of distruction or follow the same bad information even though we know better.Time to cut our losses and try something else.Gypsy Rose Lee Our continuing faith in a higher power(Lord) and trust in ourselves to keep doing the right thing despite what others believe or do will keep us on the right track.Thanx so much for all your support and help.

      Voted up and awesome. You're right life leads on an exciting journey and we have to know how to live it right and benefit from it. With faith in ourselves and the Lord we can accomplish quite a lot.

      I like that theme. Life is a journey, and if we reach a dead-end, it's not "game over", it's just time to go back and find your way to where you want to be. Change is in your hand, you just have to make it happen!

      You always seem to express what we all feel at one time or another. Looking back over my life, I can't help but wonder if I made the right choices.

      Great work with a great message to everyone.

      Voted UP.

      "I want better...I deserve better" Now there are powerful, self-affirming words. Well done and great message.
