Motivational Monday...Good Choices

 

To this day, our family always tells everyone to be safe when someone is leaving. It is something that we especially emphasize with our family members who are law enforcement members.  Heck, I’ve even said Be safe in choose wiselythe comment section here or in texts to people I know.

 

However lately, a Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Commercial caught my eye. It shows a father reminding his daughter who is about to go off on her bicycle to make good choices. 

 

Making good choices is something that would be good to teach our children as well as remember ourselves. 

 

For example, the first good choice the young girl made in the commercial was to wear her helmet. On her route, she will face many choices that will lead to keeping her safe...stopping at crosswalks, looking both ways, avoiding short cuts that take her in questionable areas. 



We are all given choices in life...granted some may not be the ones we would like, but they are still choices. To say I didn’t have a choice isn’t really true. It may mean that the choices presented to you were not ones you would have preferred...or the choice you made was not a good one. 

 

In some cases, the choices that we are left with are a result of previous choices that we’ve made. 

 

As you begin the week, look at all of the choices that you’ll need to make in the next 24 hours. Choices that deal with your work, your family, your health...all have consequences down the road. 

 

Make good choices!!!



Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.

Kathy,

Great post, and I have no seen the commercial.  We must be hanging out on the same wave length, as I quoted Roy T. Bennet from the same book in my post today...Happy Monday.  A

Hi Kathy - making good choices is a great reminder. It really does boil down to it, doesn't it? There are times when I have wanted to check my phone while I'm driving - and I'll think, nope, don't do it. It can wait.

Hi Kathy... what else is there to add to this? Nothing!

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.

 life . . . a nightmare come true

or a playground if we choose

AND I CHOOSE 

Very few things offer us 'no choice' and even then we can choose how to respond.

Barbara Todaro I'd bet all parents do!!!

Lise Howe people do have choices but forget that they do. 

Wayne Martin exactly. I hear people say all of the time that they didn't have a choice...but they do.

Hi Sham Reddy CRS and thank you. Have a wonderful week. 

Donald Urschalitz this is so true. It's those rushed choices that sometimes will get us in trouble. 

Sharon Lee we are making choices almost every minute of the day.

Sheila Anderson so many times we look back and regret a choice that we made. Hopefully not too often. 

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS I think it's one of the best lessons we can teach our children...make good choices.

Michael Jacobs so many off-the-cuff words we say to others and yet they have a lot of meaning. 

You bet Kat Palmiotti I hate it when that happens. 

Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE you're right. It's a simple prase packed with meaning.

I agree Roy Kelley and hello to Chef Dolors. 

Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® thank you so much!!!! Hope today is a better one for you. 

George Souto everything we do sets us up for the choice we face.

Sharon Tara I love that commercial. Did you know I saw some kind of chat room where they thought that the little girl was talking back to her father!  I don't know where that person's mindset was but it was clearly in a negative frame of mind.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP That is so true. It's a bit of a blessing, isn't it!

Nina Hollander I love that quote and yes it says everything. 

Candice A. Donofrio you're right. There are very few times when we have no choice but how we react is a choice.

Kathy,

We love when that happens!  We see it as a form of synchronicity that is happening, and alignment!  A

At the beginning of this year, I made a little assessment of things, and wrote my list of things that would include better choices than I made last year.  Thus far, I'm making good progress in accomplishing them.

Hi Kathy Streib - that is important advice to children and young adults.  And some choices you are forced to make are surely the result of unfortunate choices you made in the past.  We hope they listen from the beginning.

Hi Kathy,  Thanks for this great Motivational Monday post.  I remember teaching the "good choices" to our children when they were growing up.  Much easier to say then do to - especially for children.

Morning Kathy.

I wonder how many choices I'll be faced with today.  I'm sure I'll take them one at a time, deciding which way to go

Oh, I'm in total agreement, Kathy! One thing you said that I think teens AND business owners forget - we are oftentimes making choices from previous choices we've made...

So, choose wisely!
