Your life is always about you. Some people have a tendency to think that because they have kids to take care of, or parents to take care of, or spouses to take care of or other folks to take care of, that it is not important to take care of themselves.
Nothing could be further from the truth. There is only one you, you are unique in this entire Universe and the only one who can do the perfect job of taking care of you is you.
This is a job you cannot delegate. Of course, you can go to the dentist and if necessary, to the hospital and they will take care of you. And sometimes, a situation might arise where you really need the help of someone else in a particular situation.
But that does not mean it is possible to give anyone constant control of your life. It just doesn’t work that way.
People have tried on occasion to give away their control of their own thoughts and minds and emotions, and it almost seems to work occasionally, on a temporary basis. Like when you fall in love and you spend hours waiting for that special someone to give you a call or an email.
But on a permanent basis, no one does a better job at taking care of you, than you.
You Have The Power Of The Universe
The power that runs the Universe also courses through your veins, through your heart, through your soul. That power is in every single part of you. And because you have that power in you, given to you by the Universe, it is perfectly alright for you to use it.
Like the way Louise Hay says it, “I am one with the Power of the Universe, and that Power has given me the power to create my own circumstances.”
If that is not a statement of who is in charge of you, I don’t know what is.
So you have this power. Lots of people can accept that. Being in charge of your own destiny, calling your own shots or just taking care of yourself. There are a lot of ways to phrase that idea.
But once you know you have this power, what exactly are you supposed to do with it?
The answer, simply enough, is “whatever you want to do with it”.
And for many people, that is where they stop. They know there is power, they know they have this power and they know they can use it to create what they want – they just don’t know what they do want.
The world is so much easier when you go to the ice cream cone shop and they have chocolate or vanilla. Easy choice.
But if the ice cream people said that they could make any flavor you wanted just for you, lots of people would hesitate. That hesitation sometimes has to do with their view of the Universe as being limited. You hear this kind of thought expressed by that little voice that is talking to you asking what happens if you pick wrong.
In truth, the Universe, is, well, the Universe, and is unlimited in that it includes everything that ever was, is or will be. Given that idea, what do you think the chances are that the Universe includes another choice for you if you don’t like the first one you made?
100 percent, you can have another choice. As a matter of fact, you make choices everyday about things that could really make a difference in your life. What road to take to work. Regular or supersized fries. What clothes to wear that match how you are feeling. And with those choices you can choose as many times as you like.
- Want to go a different way to work in the morning – no problem.
- Want 2 super sized scoops of fries – coming right up.
- Want to wear that neon green shirt with those red pants – go for it.
- And if you don’t like what you picked today, you can certainly pick something different tomorrow.
Are there limits in the physical world, sure there are. The thought that you are going to grow wings as you step out into the air over the Grand Canyon, you know that’s probably not going to work out so well. But that is an extreme circumstance and quite unique.
Most of the opportunities that you have to make your own choices and create your own circumstances are nowhere near that level, so there is no need to treat them that way. No need to be afraid of making choices for things you want instead of against things you don’t want.
And the interesting thing is, the more you create your own circumstance by making your own choices for you, the better you feel about doing it. You are already an expert, but with a little bit of practice, you can feel like an expert. And that is even better.
On occasion, someone will think along the lines of
"If I just go around doing whatever I want what will happen to the world."
Hard to say, probably not much different than what is happening right now. Because the bottom line is, this is how the Universe works already, all day, every day. And you already spend your day making choices for yourself, it would be OK to create your circumstances based on what you want and know that you are doing so.
