“We understand that you have different areas of your life and that you may perceive that some areas are going better than others. We want to play a game here, as you’re doing this exercise. We want you to say, “I have chosen, I am choosing, I choose,” I have been choosing to…” – whichever feels the most resonant for how you going to finish that sentence. Then look at an area of your life. “I have been choosing to be exhausted. I have been choosing to be too busy. I have been choosing to be the victim. I have been choosing to be in this loving relationship. I have been choosing to have a career that I love.”
There will be aspects that you will feel you’ve been choosing correctly, because you like those areas that are going well in your life. There will also be some that you will write about from the place of negativity or consider to not be going well in your life. Continue this exercise: “I have chosen, I am choosing, I choose,” “I have been choosing to…” Go through the various areas of your life: your health, your emotions, your thoughts, your ways of being, your family, your home, your career, your hobbies – whatever they are. Spend ten to fifteen minutes on this exercise.
Ready to know the punch line before the joke? It’s that the purpose of this exercise is to indicate to you that what’s been going on in your life is a reflection of your capacity to choose. When you tie together what’s going on in your life with your capacity to choose, you’re able to realize that you have a choice. You are able to access your capacity to choose in a way that allows you to choose something new.”
