Not even seemingly bad decisions can take us away from who we are.
You may have had this feeling at one time or another in your life that a decision you made was a mistake and that you somehow fell off track with yourself but one is never bound by past actions or choices. Consequences are born of previous thoughts or feelings and actions taken but how we approach those consequences in the moment allows us to continue in the same way or alter and move in a new direction.
When disappointed by what you experience, you are presented with a moment of conflict which highlights a deep knowing inside yourself that you want change. Your actions to bring about change necessitates inner action first, to acknowledge how you want to be and make a commitment to being that. Once aligned with your goals you can transform your external circumstances in the way that you want.
