When did doing the right thing get so difficult?

How is it that doing what is right has become the most paradoxical, hidden, mystical answer to find?


If it’s the right thing shouldn’t it be obvious?Here is what I’ve found.

Yeah, it is obvious.  Thanks for reading.

Haha, it is obvious to the person who is properly able to see. The problem does not lie in the choice between say, working at a factory and working at mill.

The problem, and this has been true for all of time, lies with in me.  I can not differentiate right from wrong because I have no clue who I am.

When there is no sense of identity or knowing the reality of my self then any direction I move in seems like the incorrect one. Or it is Lauren with question of “Did i make the right choice?”

We live in a world full of distractions and things that can confuse us about who we are.

It is not the fault of these things that I am confused, it is my responsibility to keep the proverbial dirt from caking on my shoes to the point I forget that I am wearing shoes.

I must clean up the mess I live in. So that walking the path I am supposed to walk becomes as natural as breathing.

What is the right decision? The right decision is taking full responsibility for my life and all aspects of it.

The right decision is remembering that one failed experiment does not end my research.

The right decision is to love myself enough to not put myself in harm’s way for a moment of satisfaction.

The right decision lies with in each moment, so I better make the decision to be in the moment lest I miss my opportunity to take the right path in front of me.

If you made the right decision to read this post today it means your brain is full of mushy gray stuff.  Congratulations.

Reading is fun its always a good decision, but not always the right one.

Remember it is enough to simply experience what ever choice you have made fully and not hold on to it as the only decision you will ever make.

It is more important that we make a decision to experience life right or wrong and do it to the best of our abilities and see what comes of it.

Always growing, always experiencing something new, I understand that now. And because I do I am no longer trapped by it.

Ok Bye,

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.

  1. Agree, I don’t think one choice should define who or what you are forever, but it will define you in that moment, the lesson therefore is to take responsibility for your choice, learn from it and move forward. Just my thoughts..
