The element of choice

I came across this image a few days ago and it got it me thinking about the choices we all make in life and how optimistic I have been about my own choices so far.

So as the wheels turn, I am wondering about the philosophy of mind. I have alright common sense and judgement in practical matters, and so I should, as a hopeful social worker! 

I'm pretty logical with others, offering clear reasoning, but with matters of my own, I have a tendency to be irrational and realistic about what I can achieve. I think we can choose to have those negative thoughts and moods sometimes as that is just the realist in us. 

Over the last few years, everything has been a game of catch up- idealising how I can change things to suit me and imagining perfection... so a bit of daydreamer yes but why not!! We can choose to have dreams, get them and deserve them. We all have them don't we, but perhaps some of us forget them and get bogged down with work or looking after others?

Well, it seems I just can't make up my mind, but I am definitely choosing to listen to my inner voice :) However, I want my little optimist to resurface in full force, glowing with positivity for years to come!
