A fork in the road

Everyday brings a series of choices.  You can choose to stay in bed.  You can choose to try somethingA fork in the road new.  You can choose to do the same thing you always do.  You can choose to learn something.  You can choose to ignore something.  You can choose to be engaged.  You can choose to disengage.  You can choose to close your eyes.  You can choose to see.

No matter what you choose each day, it's your choice.  You can choose to be a victim, or you can choose to be a victor.  You can choose to conqueror, or you can choose to be conquered.  You can choose to be a success, or you can choose to be a failure.  You can choose to be in charge, or you can choose to be controlled.  

Everyday is a day of opportunity.  You will always choose which one you will take.  You might choose by default, or a perceived default, or you might choose by vision and desire.  The world is open before you.  Choose wisely, and inspire the portion of the world you've been fortunate to grace.

Mike, It's that failure of people to realize they have choices and then not take accountability to take personal responsibility for them is one of my pet peeves.  Today I did choose to stay in bed later than normal.  First showing is at 2 p.m. :)

Mike - all true and very eloquently put while to the point. For the most part life is how you perceive it and that's a choice. When something's not working, it's up to us to change it, not complain year after year as many people do. I apply this to my fears and try to always face them rather then avoid them and miss out on life its amazing opportunities! Love your blogs - always inspirational!

Mike - that is soooo true.  Everything is a choice, even when it doesn't feel like one, or even when all the choices are crappy, they're still choices.  I choose to live my life by recognizing my choices and proactively making them.  And now I choose to stop commenting.

Great and well-written post that everyone should read!  It often surprises me when people get stuck and think their life is this way or that way ... when actually they have the power to change it, all by themselves :-)

Hi Mike,  Sometimes the best advice comes in the simplest wrapper.  This looks like one of those times !

I love the idea that we are the master of our own lives. While things are thrown at us every day taht we have no control over, what we do have control of is what we do with that.

Donna, I'm not sure.  Last week was pretty crazy busy, so it could have been a number of things.

Hi Mike - Very true.  And what some people don't realize is that doing nothing is also a choice.
