If you are alive today, if you have a life, you’ve been born on this earth, you are living and breathing right now in this moment, then you also have a choice. You get to make choices every single day. You make little choices every single day. What you’re gonna eat for lunch, how hard you’re gonna try in class, if you’re gonna text that person, what you’re gonna wear, how you’re gonna act towards your friends. You also make bigger choices like what sports you’re gonna play, what college you’re gonna go to, what kind car you’re going to buy, what kind of job you want to get. YOU get to make these choices. Each choice is yours. Each choice you make takes up time in your day. Every single person gets the same about of time in each day they are given. We all have 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. What you get the choice on is HOW you want to spend YOUR time. Time is all the same, 1 hour is the same for everyone. It’s how you want to spend your hour that separates us as people. People spend their time very differently. Some spend their time looking at other people’s lives on instagram. Some people spend their time traveling. Some people spend their time stuck behind a desk working a job they hate. Some people spend their time waiting for something to happen to them. How you spend your time creates who you are. What you do with your time is who you are. It is what you do with your time that creates your fate.
HOW are YOU going to choose to spend YOUR time? Are you going to spend it watching others do things? Are you going to spend it waiting for something to happen to you? Are you going to spend it making excuses? Feeling bad for yourself? Playing the victim because things aren’t going your way? Spend it throwing yourself a pity party? Or are you going to spend your time creating a life you are proud of? Are you going to embrace the time you have on this earth by making the most of your time? Are you going to make a difference? Are you going to make an impact on others? Are you going to make a choice to live the best life you possibly can? Are you going to choose to be happy and make the most out of the cards you’ve been dealt? Are you going to choose to live a life full of purpose, with a purpose? Are YOU going to choose to spend YOUR time doing something that is meaningful because it makes YOU happy? Don’t waste your time and your life just going through the motions. How boring is that? What a waste of life. What a waste of time. What a boring choice that doesn’t make anyone happy, including yourself.
You only get one life, how do you want to live it? How do you want to be remembered? What kind of person do you want to be right now? What kind of person do you want to become? All of these questions have answers. It’s your choice how you want to answer and which answer you want to choose. Life is about making a bunch of choices, minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day. Your life is made up by the choices you make on how you want to spend your time. That’s the best part. Life is what you make it. IT’S YOUR CHOICE. YOU get to decide how you want to live your life. Let me repeat, you GET to decide. Keyword, “GET.” YOU GET TO. You are lucky enough to have this choice. YOU ARE LUCKY TO BE ALIVE, to have a life of choice and life filled with time. You get to fill your time up with things YOU want to do, with people you want to be around. The time is yours, the choice is yours. Choose YOUR time. And choose to be a person who lives a life ON purpose. Be a person who lives a life WITH A purpose.
