Choices Give Strength

Choose a good path on your journey.

Choose a good path on your journey.

There is something about making choices that bring out the sunshine for us people. To be in a situation that is difficult but to have choice in the details can bring about a feeling of well – being.

An example of this would be a person visiting hospital against their wishes. They are given a choice to see the doctor one,  in the morning or two,  in the afternoon. Another example would be they are given the choice to one, attend a medication group or two attend an occupational therapy group. By having some choice they are given the reins a little bit. This allows them to have some control.

Making choices in our daily lives while not in hospital can also lead to a state of satisfaction mind. Deciding to do chores in the morning or afternoon can lead to a feeling of confidence. Although it’s not always great to be controling it is especially satisfying to have a feeling of control in some areas of one’s life.

So if you’re feeling out of control. Take the reins and give yourself some choices. You may feel better off for it and get some things done in the process.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to my Blog! My name is Melanie and my nic-name Snowflake as you may already know. I'm excited to share some of my ideas and writings with you. It's interesting how psychological concepts can make things a little clearer. I have a psychology degree from the University of Waterloo. It is my hope that I can share some knowledge with you. Some of my hobbies include playing piano, guitar, drawing and more recently beading. It also really interesting to recieve comments from the amazing people who read my Blog. I hope if you feel inclined that you will tell me a bit about yourself. I would like to think that some special time spent off the net is also important for you or me. In this time you could sing or dance or just sit with a book. In the mean-time it's nice to have met you because there is some quality time spent on the net. I hope you have had time to look at your favourite song or look up your favourite author. My favorite song is True Colour by Cyndi Lauper and my favourite author is Gretchin Rubin. I feel gratitude that I can write this Blog. I hope you come back and see what new Blog is here over time. In the mean time have a great day and stay you!
