Why you must Decide and Choose in life


One of the most important lessons in life, in my opinion, is to decide. To make a decision

When you don't make a decision yourself, others make it for you - whether you are aware of it or not.

I haven't always known, it is a conscious choice I have to make. I kinda just thought it was me and 'the way I am' when I decided to leave school at the age of 17 to move to London, for example.

If I'd known it takes practice being enough, authentic, real, honest and so on - I would have started practicing earlier.

But now I know, and so I'll share with you some of the things I decide and choose to do, and be in my life:

Things I decide to say NO to:

people who are not good for me

too many projects


stress and overwhelm

pleasing everybody

watching rubbish on the telly that rots my brain

Some of the things I choose:

to guard my mind from trash and rubbish, it being thoughts, advertisements, telly or gossip

that I matter

to set boundaries for myself so I don't let people hurt my feelings

that I am enough

to do the work

to set time aside for me


to keep learning and  feed my mind

to think for myself

These are some thoughts and ways of being that is important to me

You must choose and decide.

Decide what kind of person you want to be. Where you want to live and how you want to live.

What kind of people/friends you want to be around.

Decide and choose.

Choose to have many careers. Choose not to limit yourself to just one passion. Decide to live in another country. Whatever it is, it's much better that you make the decision and not someone else.

By writing and sharing this post with you I'm choosing to practice my authenticity.

It feels good.
