This week I bring you only one very special suggestion, one Ted Talk that you probably will never forget.
In a very special way, Caroline Myss explains how we shape our life with our small choices, many times without knowing what we are doing.
She shows that the most important choices are the ones we usually consider as small choices, the ones we often ignore have a huge impact on our health and happiness.
Here are some excerpts that more resonated with me, I highly recommend you listen to the complete Talk if you want to learn much more about… yourself.
The choices that matter
“What we are used to doing is believing that a big choice is an obvious one: buying a house, getting married, getting divorced.
In fact, those are your small choices.
The choices that actually matter when it comes to your health, when it comes to healing, when it comes to positioning yourself, empowering yourself, are the tiny ones.”
“The first choice is the decision to actually live an integrous life.
(…) I’m talking full-scale ‘I’m going to walk the way I talk.’ I’m actually going to do it.
I’m going to live a life of integrity.”
Choose what you will pass on
“You make a decision: I will not pass my suffering on, but my wisdom.
I make the decision not to pass on my suffering, but my wisdom.”
Answers are not in the past
“When it’s time to make a decision about ‘I don’t know what to do next,’ do not go to who you were, what you did, because it will pull you back, perhaps even to places that don’t exist anymore, to images of yourself that are no more.
You are not that person.”
Choose to take risks
“The choice to take risks.
Take risks in your life. Don’t wait for proof, take risks.”
Choose your words
“Choose new words.
(..) And know how powerful every single word is, not only that you say to another person, but that you say to yourself.
What are the words you say to yourself?
Words that you should never utter again to yourself.
Words that you should never, ever use.
Words that you should say, ‘What is that word doing in my head?’ ”
Choose to bless your day
“Choose to get up every day and bless your day.
Choose to get up every single day and bless your day.
And say, I have no idea what’s going to be in my day but it is blessed.
Why? Because I am alive.
And don’t base your gratitude for your life on what you have,
or how you feel, but just because you are.
Just because you are!
Just because you are.”
This day will never come again
“And then hold in your heart this prayer:
This day of my life will never come again.
I will never see the people I am looking at again.
I will never see this sunrise again, and I will never see that sunset.
I will never see the person having breakfast with me again
just this way.
No, nothing in my life like this will ever come again.
That alone, that choice alone, should take out of your heart every bitter taste there is.
That it should shape the life around you with such grace and such beauty, that it would make you only want to see the present with great gratitude and love.”
