What You Allow Will Continue

There are things going on in your life that you do not like.  And, you created them either by ignoring them or tolerating them.

Sometimes it seems like this is a good choice.  A safe choice.  An easier choice.

But, it is usually not the best choice.

You're carrying a few extra pounds.  You put up with a mouthy teenager.  You spend a little more than you should.  You choose an extra hour of sleep over the gym.

It doesn't matter what the dislike is.  You created it.  It was your choice.

What you allow is what will continue.

That is the choice.

It is the choice you make with yourself.  It is what you tolerate from yourself instead of what you would rather do.

It is a choice you make with others.  It is what you tolerate from other people instead how you would rather be treated.

And, it was your choice.  And, it will continue.

As long as you allow it.

You could make a different choice.

You could not allow it.  Not tolerate it.  Not put up with it.

This is a tougher choice.  But, it is usually the right choice.

It is the choice you would look back and say, I am glad I did that.

You can make this choice with yourself.  And, with others.

You could choose the healthy breakfast over the doughnut shop. You could choose to save instead of spend.  You could choose a good book over mindless television.

You could allow yourself to make better choices.  You could allow yourself to feel better.  You could allow yourself to be happy.

What you allow is what will continue.

You could choose to no longer tolerate an ungrateful relative.  You could choose to stand up to the bully.  You could insist that your partner do their fair share.

You could allow people to show you respect.  You could allow others to appreciate you.

What you allow is what will continue.
