Be Mindful

Our experiences of today are the result of the choices we made yesterday, and the choices we make today will shape our tomorrow. Each of us are the masters of our own destiny, and our choices determine how we get there. Consequently, our choices must be made with a great deal of discernment.

Discernment is the ability to take our knowledge and the understanding of our past experiences and apply that insight to our current situation, thus ensuring the best decision possible. The key to making wise and mindful decisions is discernment of choice. Wisdom is the outcome of applying that discernment of choice in a pure and positive thought.

Wisdom provides us with sight, clarity of purpose and the ability to see our recourse more clearly. However this clarity can only be maintained when our emotions are controlled.

Making decisions while in an emotional state is like driving in a thick fog…it’s difficult to see where you’re going, so you need to slow down, pull over and wait for the fog to clear. If you feel your emotions are getting the best of you, don’t make any important decisions. Be still. Wait for the fog to lift and to regain the clarity so you can see the road ahead.

Choose with foresight, and with a positive purpose. Be mindful, be deliberate, and choose wisely. As you start shaping your future, you will also start changing your past, for today is the yesterday of our tomorrow.

Go in light and grow in peace.
