Test Drive #2: Choice




Will this one be for me?

In December I test drove 3 words before choosing My One Word for 2012....This is my second test drive.

I might be the type who, at times, can make a mountain out of a molehill; make a problem bigger (or more important) than it really has to be. Not because I want to, but because I tend to perceive something to matter when it really shouldn't.

In tough situations, we sometimes just have to make a choice to let things go, be happy or sad, irritated or not... and maybe just move on....

With that being said, I wanted to work on encouraging myself to see I had those OPTIONS, and could, if I wanted to, just 'Let it Go'.


That sounded good to me...
NO-
that sounded GREAT!!!

This would be a PERFECT Word for 2012!

CHOICE!
This would help me decipher the trivial from the not so trivial,
and move on to a happier more relaxed life.

Choice worked. 'Letting go' was a great thought!
And while it works, I found myself letting go too much!
At times, not worrying or making a stand for enough of the things which were important to me...

I soon realized that much like the Hummer pictured above...'Let it Go' (or Choice) was definitely not for me.

This is what I already knew:

  • I have choices and several of them I've made are because of things that were important to me.


  • I was already capable of letting things go because often I refrained from getting upset over insignificant things


  • I make a habit of choosing my battles wisely and actually tend to be passive enough already



On to Test Drive #3...
