The Choice

"The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live"

How was your day???

You get to choose how you start your day despite the circumstances.

You get to choose to enjoy waking up with a smile despite the heat and noise or choose to be annoyed with how your day started.

You ride a jeepney and chanced upon a passenger who is annoying you to bits you can either choose to divert your attention to something other than the passenger or stay annoyed deep inside.

You get to college and knew about the change in the schedule, you can choose to complain or you can choose to accept it.

or if you are working your boss suddenly announces you to be transferred, you can choose to be excited with the change or fear what happens.

A colleague gets into your nerves, you can choose to react or choose to just smile and understand the person.

A friend asks you to go to lunch to meet his/her friends, you can choose to decline or choose to meet new friends.

When you ride a taxi and happened to chance upon an "angry driver", you can choose to ignore it or choose to react once again.

or if you are driving and another car cuts you off, you can chase that car and throw dagger-like looks at the driver when you catch up or just remain calm and understand.

You can always choose what type of day it is today. Is it a good one or a bad one? When you decide to choose how to feel and respond in every given situation, it may seem insignificant but when you look at the big picture it sums your day. In these cases, we know there are no right or wrongs just "simple choices".

The
hidden secret of life is that we are a PRODUCT of the simple decisions we make each time.

Do you ever wonder that if we turned right instead of left we could have been a different person? We could have been happier , despite of everything that goes along our way.

Each day we make choices, consciously or unconsciously. We can either choose to be happy, respond, accept, change, improve, offer a smile, say hello, be generous and be every bit of a kind person deep within or we can choose to be sad, react, resist changes, ignore happiness, be grumpy and angry.


So, what type of day is it today?

The choice is up to you!

Edward said...

hello,
Thank you for visiting my blog. It is an honor. I like this entry and happy to read your it. You are right about choices in life. It reminds me of some people in my home town in Cagayan de Oro that no matter how they tried, they could not get it. Let may say, maybe but if you did really tried you might hit the moon instead of your ceiling if you aim for the star right?

Edward said...

len said...

Quincy John said...

two thumbs up for the post tina!
very very good.
post more something like that.
it should remind many people, it should be spread, it should be pondered over.

do you remember what silver surfer said? "We always have a choice!" with a deep, macho voice.

Peter Parker supported it by saying, "and we can always choose what is RIGHT!"

Be proactive! :)

very nice post, i enjoyed!

nona said...

Mari said...

You are so right. It's all our choice to look the other way instead of seeth with annoyance.

CM said...

I wake up in the morning thinking how to start my day. I made it as a hobby, that's why I'm always cheerful in spite of the ngaragness in school. Hehehe. :)

So my choice is to smile and be happy. :)

Dominique said...

Psst...you're invited

chase said...

Well I always make sure to live my life to the fullest each day. Even laden with problems it doesnt hinder my ability to be cheerful and smile all the time

Ferdz said...

So true. It's our reactions to situations that defines our day. Naku ang sarap ng kain ah!

i always believe, each one makes his/her day. and it depends on how she/he starts it the way he/she preferable. but sometimes we go by the day without any choice but to let it flow on its own. this post is full of brights thoughts. good day!

Angelo said...

That's a very cool attitude Tina! I guess that's where the saying "cooler heads prevail" comes from...wait is that a saying or am I making it up? Oh well, looks like you're busy in the real world too Tina! Stay cool and stay positive.

I like this post! Most of the events happening in our lives are basically because of our choices... However, there are cases where we have no power or no choice to prevent something from happening. =)

Jake The Miserable said...

Mismo. Choices, big and small, is what makes us.

We are the driver of our lives. Ako, okay sa'kin ang student fare.

Kidding aside, sometimes I still feel like I never had a choice on some certain situations. I was left with my matter of survival, if not having a choice.

Czian said...

I can relate! One choice can affect many things. Mahirap talaga pag nagkamali. Kaya dapat... think.

PogiChinoy said...

The beauty of life is that we have choices, sometimes we can control how we receive these choices, sometimes we can't.

Just gotta remember most of us are luckier than others in this beautiful world.
