10 Gifts of the Season: Day 5- Choice
Jack Campbel, (Nicholas Cage) waltzes into a board room and dazzles his audience, oblivious to anyone other than himself. He loves his fast car, striking companions and monumental deals. This story reminds me a bit of Scrooge twisted into a modern day reality. Jack journeys into the alternate life had he chosen another path.
In some ways, we are all 'Jack.' We have forks in the road, plot twits, chance meetings, alternate routes, but at the end of the day, we have choices. We have the ability to make these choices in every moment. Choice allows for change. Choice invites growth. Choosing can sometimes scare the britches right off of you, but even not making a choice is truly a choice.
In this season of your life, how can you utilize the gift of choice? Maybe you're tired of the same drive to work everyday? Maybe you miss the little moments in life? Maybe you can't even remember the last time you laughed until your sides hurt? Choice is an ever present companion. Each moment of your life, you have the opportunity to open your eyes in gratitude to this constant friend.

I was reading from a deck of inspiration cards the other day and it said in paraphrase, "Forgive yourself for being human and making mistakes. You did the best you could with the information you had at the time. Forgive others in your life and have the courage to live the life you truly desire.
