tumblr_nbpm94Vr4S1r5gmiko1_500Welcome to Tuesday at Ten! The Tuesday blog Link up where you have 1 full week to use the prompt word to your liking!

Whether it be just writing a story behind the prompt word, or being as creative as you wish using photos, poems, art, or graphics – whichever creative way you choose.

You have 1 week to write and link up your blog at the bottom of the page so that others can link up with you. Be sure to visit your “link up” neighbor and spread the joy of connection!

I will choose writers and their writings to be posted on the blog and the Tuesday at Ten Facebook page each week,

Remember  – it’s not about being perfect, it’s about being YOU. Have FUN!

Today’s Prompt word is {CHOICE}  – link up below under my writing ….


This week for me is all about choices and making choices! I can go one way, or I can go another, I am bound by nothing an that is something I realized this past weekend.

I made a decision and choice this week to do something that will help me move a little more out of this isolation place I have been in this whole. It’s a choice and a choice that comes with a blessing and a curse.

This week I am making a step out of the prison cell I feel I have been in emotionally and I am taking risks and chances!

I told my therapist yesterday what my plan is and the very first words that came out of him was “and you have my full support through this, I am on your side and we will work hard to see this risk through”.

I am going to change the way I go about a few things and I am hoping that these new choices will really help me to move through this hardness of a year I have had in a whole new way.

I am not ready to write about what this change is or what choices I made, but what I can say is, I am working my way to change something physically so that emotionally I can start feeling more grounded.

The blessing is, I know I can do this! The blessing is I have a lot of support! The blessing is I have God by my side. The blessing is, I will feel more grounded … the curse is, it’s going to be hard to make this change physically, but I am ready!

Something needs to change! This has been a long hard year and something needs to change! I am tired of being in the repetitive motion of trying to open the same door that remains locked! It’s time to try a new door and open the possibilities of change and new choices.

I am both excited and scared! I know I have an amazing support system who will stand by me while I work hard through this. I have an amazing husband… awesome boys who fill my day with joy… I have GOD who constantly watches over me… I have an amazing therapist who i have been working with now for 7 1/2 years who I know will walk with me every step in this change and choice …. both scared and excitement I will have those emotions met along side of me.

So …. what choice do you have to make something change in your life? Everyone has a choice… like this quote

“At any moment you have a choice that either leads you closer to your spirit, or further away from it” – Thich nhat hanh

We are given a life with choices and when we are stuck we have a choice to make a step out of the hardness and brokenness that life puts us through sometimes and that is exactly what I have decided to do.

Sometimes We may feel like we are locked in a prison, but the thing is, the door is always unlocked, we just have to trust we an walk out and make that choice at any time.

    I woke up thinking about what God has chosen me for and when I checked Facebook, I saw the word CHOICE. God is hilarious, and has impeccable timing.

    Thank you for creating a place to link up!

    We are constantly making choices in our daily lives, and I think this is a great topic.

    This prompt couldn’t have come at a better time, as recently I have been faced with one of the hardest choices I’ve made in my life. I know I made the right one, but that doesn’t make it easy & doesn’t take away the temporary pain. Thank you for this prompt and this new link-up opportunity.
