The Art of the Game of Life

I am in my mid-life and while I cannot say it's a crisis, it is very different to how I imagined and not where I thought I would be at this point. There is so much learned now from life experience,  that I couldn't have known at younger ages.

Life is a game......we are making it up as we go along and our job is to enjoy it and get the most out of each moment and every move, whether strategic or fun.

We came here to taste, feel, laugh, sing, dance, play and experience.

So many times I have been traveling or just striking up a conversation with someone, and they have wished they could do what I'm doing, or go where I'm going, especially if I had a long plan of travel ahead of me. The truth is...they can. It's all a choice. Everything we do is a choice. The question I ask daily these days is...what choices am I making? 

This question keeps me in the now, the daily life here on earth. Some days it's tough to make a choice and some days I sweep along with other people's choices, but most days I come back to that question. It keeps me accountable. It makes me responsible for my daily life. I am taking full responsibility. 

There are certain places I wish to go and see, certain aspects of life I wish to experience, some tasks I wish to accomplish but overall, I am making decisions and choices all the time. What to wear, what to eat, how to get somewhere, what to communicate and how, and so much more. 

Those I know that are enjoying life, are making great choices and plans for better and better opportunities every day. 

It has been said that: 

Small minds discuss others

Mediocre minds discuss problems

Large minds discuss opportunities.

I know which one I wish to stand in. 

Which one are you standing in?
