Redefining Who We Are
We make decisions every day and many things can drive them. They are mainly driven by fear, love, greed, generosity, anger or compassion. But in reality, many times, we question our decisions, which can lead to sleepless nights and indecisive feelings.
Wouldn’t it be great to never look back and feel uncomfortable about all the decisions we have made? How could we do that in a world that is constantly changing, while simultaneously constantly changing ourselves?
Our culture and society provide us with rules, which we choose to adhere to or not. Nonetheless, we create beliefs that then make up our point of view and drive our decisions and actions.
Beyond that, an identical situation can appear “good or bad,” “right or wrong,” depending on which perspective we look at it from. What is the real constant here that we should base our decisions on? Each decision we make has a direct impact on our lives and environment. By looking at our environment and life, we can see where our decisions have taken us and then question, Is this who I want to be? Is this reflecting Who I Am? Is it conflicting with what I show that I am? Thus, every time I make a decision, I should really question: Will this reflect Who I Am?
The beautiful thing about life is that we can create our reality. Yes, we can! And we do that by the thoughts we have and the decisions we make. And when we don’t like our outcome, we can change it again. We are the creators of our own lives. It may be hard to believe but when we realize that we can decide for ourselves what our next move will be, we start to evolve into who we are and who we want to be. And, once we understand that we can create our own environment, we will never again regret the decisions we make; we are now using our decisions to test and act upon the result. We become in control, but not in a passive mode or by playing the victim of our environment. So, let’s be open and act differently or say something different next time this situation occurs, without regretting what we did previously. At the end of the day, we owe it to ourselves for our previous actions that allowed us to see the impact and decide whether or not this aligned with Who We Are.
By continuously adapting our decisions to the outcome we envision, we start to evolve. And if we constantly evolve towards what we want and redefine who we are, then we are on the right track to grow. It may not be a straight line as we would all hope for, but as we go, we will redefine ourselves more. As time goes on, it gets easier and easier. The delta between Who We Are and What We Live is smaller and smaller, aligning with peace and joy.
Again, remember: there is no right or wrong, no good or bad, it’s only experience. So, start redefining Who You Are. Use decisions as your tool and start recreating yourself. YOU ARE IN CHARGE. Yes, you are. One decision at a time!
