The beauty in you (a poem)


Choices, choices, choices

I’m a big fan of choice. I believe that, in life, the role of choosing can make a difference. Choice is one of the most important things in life.

Let’s make clear that I’m a recovering control freak. But, I now believe that you can control only a few things in life after all. Life happens, each person’s world meets with someone else’s, relationships are created, as well as social groups. You don’t have control over life usually, but you do have control over the way you react to life and and the choices you make.

Each moment, you decide on doing a thing and not an other. And each single choice you make, no matter how small or big it is, has an impact in your life.

Choice is responsibility. You take a big part of the responsibility of the way things turn out. The outcome of a situation may not be in your hand 100%, but the choice you make can turn things towards a certain way.

And that’s the thing that disappoints me sometimes, looking around, all the people who make the choice that won’t be the best for them, that may be self destructive.

Makes me want to say (or scream out loud, it depends): make the good choice! Make the choice that will bring you happiness and peace. Make the choice that will be good for you and that will make you a better person, that will add to you and not take from you. Make the choice that will make the show/life go on!

P.S. And for those who make the good choices for themselves: I’m so happy for you, you can feel the warmth of loving yourself, your skin, and your mind, right?!
