My Choice

Yesterday’s post was pretty negative and I’m sorry about that.  All is well my peeps, no worries.

Sometimes, the realization that WE choose our own destiny is a bit much to take.  Everything in our life, we are responsible for and have either created it or allowed it to happen.  

The day that I realized THAT, was quite profound for me.  You have to remember that I didn’t have a brain cell in my head until I was in my 30’s.  (none worth mentioning anyway) And the realization that I had the power to CHOOSE how I lived my life was like a slap in the face.

Crap!  You mean I have to be an adult and accept responsibility for my own life?  Well, shit!

Me!  My choice!  Not fate.  Not some Divine Force, was pushing me along life’s path to a specific conclusion.  I choose if I take the left fork or the right one.

I do believe in a Higher Power.  But I believe that WE have the choice in this life to decide our path.  Hopefully, whatever Higher Power there may be is there to guide us and give us strength.  Our future is not preordained.  At least I don’t believe it is.

My life is a good one.   I have an abundance of Blessings that I give thanks for.  My self-chosen path has brought me to this point in my life.  What to do with tomorrow?   We will see, my pretties.  We will see.  🙂

The Daffy Duck cartoon?  I just happen to have a soft spot for the hot head (I can relate) and wanted a reason to use this particular cartoon.

    So then tell me Penny, did fate or your own choice compel or allow you to use the Daffy Suck cartoon?

    Guess I am playing the devil’s advocate and saying that perhaps it’s a mixture of Divine inspiration, personal choice and a bit of input from an uncaring reality that drives all our lives. Damn.

    That sounds a bit heavy to lay on your shoulders but truth be told reality does suck at times and human beings are always looking for scapegoats to ease the burdens for the consequences of the choices we all make…sometimes good…sometimes bad..sometimes shitty!

    If life can be compared to a chess board try to ensure that you are a queen with freedom of movement,intent and empowerment. The other pieces are there but only as reality markers.

    Shit happens. Make sure you don’t get flushed down the toilet bowl of life without giving yourself a fighting chance. Glub. Glub.

    Does any of this make sense to you? 🙂

    • Thank you , as always for your input Gerry. You laid some heavy stuff on me, my friend. Why the Daffy Duck cartoon? Because I’ve been looking for a reason to use it. And yes, I’m sure the direction my life has taken is a mixture of the Divine, personal choice and dumb luck. Thank you again Gerry. Take care.
