Life is a Choice

It is incredibly empowering to rephrase all of your "have to"s into "choose to"s.


What do we really HAVE to do to make it?  Breath.  Eat.  Sleep.  Stay at a relatively constant temperature. Maintain homeostasis.


Everything else in your life is a reflection of choices that you make. Going to what you choose to think is a crappy job?   Dealing with family drama?  It's all your choice.


I know.  Some things seem so incredibly critical to survival/well-being/sanity/stability that we can't see them as decisions we're making.


But really, truly, in the end -- you are choosing your path, every single day.
