Chapter 5, Page 26, Book 21

You make a new life by making new choices.

Sean Stephenson

May 26th - Life is full of choices

You have the freedom to choose, but you
you're not free ;from the consequences of these choices.

Frank Sonnenberg

I believe our lives are sum of all our choices so it’s important to choose wisely.  Sometimes it’s hard to know just what the right choice is, but I’ve learned to pray about it and if it is the right choice an answer will come that makes it obvious. If nothing happens, then it’s not the right choice.  It’s as easy as saying a prayer.

What ever we choose,  it’s going to effect our life and the life of others.  It’s a ripple effect that never stops. So we have to make decisions with regard to those in our lives too.  

Our choices can make our lives better and also the life of those around us too.  Our choices show who we truly are.   We are the only ones that know what it takes to makes us happy, so we need to choose what’s good for ourselves and not let others do it for us.

Our values and our beliefs determine a lot of the decisions we make and I think I have the best guide book.  It’s called the Bible.  God’s word written for you and me.  It shows me the way to live a good life and more thank anything it’s shown me we should do everything with love.  When do things with love for one another, we can’t go wrong.  

Attitude is a choice.  Happiness is a choice.  Optimism is a choice.  Kindness is a choice.  Giving is a choice.  Respect is a choice.  What ever choice you make makes you.  Choose wisely.

Life is the sum of all our choices.

Even when we've made poor decisions, I love that we still have the choice to turn around and make new ones. It's never too late to create a happy ending!

An amen to Myra. I am glad that life allows our decisions to average out, because our lives ARE the SUM of all our decisions. Thank God we are allowed to learn.
Good stuff.
