You Have the Power – Gratitudesday

Today I’m grateful for our ability to change our circumstances if we don’t like the ones we’re in.

We all have free will and the power to make choices for ourselves. Whether you’re dealing with a relationship you no longer wish to be in, or a job that isn’t gratifying, or a place that doesn’t feel like home. We have this miraculous ability to exit that circumstance and find a new and better one.

It sounds much easier than it is, of course. It might be painful. Really painful. You might hurt for a while or even hurt others along the way. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. You might have to work hard. Really hard. And fight tooth and nail for what you know you deserve. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. It might take time. A lot of time. But the time will pass anyway. Might as well use it to your advantage.

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, and I’m guessing you have, because well, life. But just in case, I feel it’s worth saying that life isn’t a cake walk. Sure, we can have our cake and eat it, too, on occasion. But more often than not, we’re getting kicked to the curb before ever even getting our chance at winning the cake.

But just because life can be hard doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do everything in our power to make it truly worth living. And in case you forgot, YOU HAVE THAT POWER. Only you. No one will do it for you.

So, if you’re feeling unsatisfied with the way your life is going, then it’s time to face the obstacles. Conquer them, in fact. And choose to lead the life you deserve. Because you really, truly, do deserve it.
