Kids really don’t know how good they have it.
They have their meals cooked, they have their laundry done and they are provided with a safe, warm place to live.
More importantly, many of their major decisions are made for them.
Our decisions have shaped every aspect of our lives.
Unfortunately, many of them have been made with fleeting emotions.
Food choices are a good example.
I’m upset so I eat this.
I’m happy so I eat that.
By linking our decisions with our emotions we never have any consistency with our experience in the world.
If emotional eating is a problem for you, there is probably already evidence of it in your body.
If emotional loving is a part of your life, there is probably evidence of it in your relationships.
(Contrary to popular belief, love is not an emotion, it is a choice.)
If we should leave emotion out of decision making, what should we use then?
What do you want for your life?
What do you want for your health?
The answers to these questions allow us to make consistent decisions that are in alignment with what we want.
Consistent decisions equal reliable results.
Of course life happens.
Emotional situations come up often.
How do we handle them?
Before they show up, that’s how.
All new habits require practice.
By practicing unemotional decision making BEFORE we end up in an emotional scenario, we build the resolve to do the right thing when it counts.
You are more powerful that you know.
Committed to your brilliance,
