Truth is, it's still hard for me to see peace as a choice sometimes...even now, even after all the "work" I've done on myself. Getting lost in negativity tends to come easier. Somedays, I'd much rather focus on what's wrong, what's next, what if's. When every moment offers you a path to choose, we humans, often choose the dark.
Perhaps it's the soul trying to learn something. Perhaps it's the universe trying to teach.
But what I need to remind myself is that where attention goes, energy flows... and also strengthens. As we habitually allow the darkness to take over...we get more lost in the dark.
For me- after choosing fear, choosing anger, choosing anxiety time and time again- I've finally learned that I could see peace instead of this...and that has made all the difference.
