Turning "Battles" into Choices

This is going to be a daily choice, not a daily battle. —LYSA TERKEURST

This certainly rings true for every endeavor in our lives. For me, eating right is a battle. So is exercising. And waking up early to meditate. There are so many temptations to do what’s easier. Doing the right thing seems like a battle if our mindset is not right. When I read this quote by Terkeurst, I had a revelation. It seems less daunting if I turn them into a CHOICE.

  • I choose to exercise.
  • I choose to meditate.
  • I choose to be happy.
  • I choose not to eat junks.
  • I choose to practice yoga.
  • I choose to blog daily.

See? It doesn’t have to be hard. Once I’ve made my choices, I action on them.

  • I exercise.
  • I meditate.
  • I am happy.
  • I eat foods that make me strong and help me build muscles for a toned body.
  • I practice yoga.
  • I just made this post.

I will choose my battles carefully and win this war!
