It’s really easy to get caught up in the drama of our lives, but we have a choice. At one point or another, we all face adversity. We all face those times of trial and tragedy. Yet how do we get to the other side? How do we bounce back from the adversity that we face? Do we systematically figure out the logical way around the situation? Do we ask other people to solve our problems for us? Or, do we wait it out and hope for the best?

Some would say that Mercury retrograde has affected my life of late, and while I don’t know enough about astrology to make any informed statements or judgments, I do know that in all things around me, good or bad, I have a choice. I have a choice to listen to the universal cues and interpret them to the best of my ability. I have the choice to deem something positive or negative. I have the choice to be proactive or idle. And I have the choice to play the victim, martyr or heroine in my story.

You see, in the last three weeks I’ve fractured my tailbone, sat in the airport for 48 hours waiting for the weather to clear thus missing an important workshop, and suffered major plumbing problems in my home that are presently still under construction. In all this, I realize that my actions and reactions are up to me and my personal choice. I have the choice to freak out, sob, or in other words, have a complete meltdown. Contrarily, I also have the option to be pro-active, comforted in the knowledge that the Great Creator has all things in order, and I have the opportunity to envision my life altered for the better. I may not be able to see what’s taking shape or where the ultimate goal is, but I am free to choose. I choose to remain positive!
