There Are Always Options

      20 Comments on There Are Always Options


A few months back I was listening to a podcast when I heard, “there are always options.” I’m not sure what the podcast was about or for, or even which one I was listening to, all I remember are those words.

In fact, as soon as I heard them, I was drawn so strongly to them, I grabbed a sticky note, wrote it down and stuck it to my external monitor; to a place that I would see it every single day, and could glance at it at any moment when I found myself overwhelmed, lost, or just needing a little reminder.

As I have felt so many aspects of my life improving lately, rediscovering my motivation and focus, I saw that sticky note the other day, took it down, and stuck it in my planner because I no longer felt like I needed to see it everyday, but that instead, I needed to share it with those around me; with all of you.

Whatever you are facing in your life; whatever decisions or stress or anxiety; whatever excitement or joy, remember there are always options. Life is always presenting us with multiple roads and paths, and we choose the ones that seem most fitting with where we ultimately want to end up.


I challenge you today to save this image (whether you PIN it to Pinterest, save it to your phone, or make it the new background on your computer) and look at it everyday for a week, month, or maybe longer, and notice how the words start to provide a whole other level of comfort; the anxiety starts to lessen; the stress starts to dissipate; the joy and excitement starts to grow.

It worked for me; it will work for you too.

    This reminds me of what one of my favorite yoga teachers once said “You are never stuck. You can always adjust. In yoga & in life.” I think it so important to realize that there are so many possibilities out there and it is up to us to get out there and find them! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Love the phrase! There are always options is very true. It may be hard to see at first especially if things are not going the right way. This is always great to remember!!!
