Choices:

There are always convincing arguments for more than one choice.
People will always give you differing opinions on which choice you should make.
There are always convincing arguments for more than one choice.
You will never completely know if you made the right choice.
    Someone will always feel you made the wrong choice.

Some people may hate you or attribute bad motives to you
for whatever choice you make.
You will often want to straddle the fence and avoid making a choice,
but that’s usually not possible.

            Not all choices have a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answer.

Choosing enables you to live
the life that you want.
Any choice can be ‘right’ or ‘wrong’
depending how you treat them.

What you choose is not as important
as how you choose
    and w
hat you do with your choice.

    You can live with any choice you make.
You can take responsibility for any choice you make.
Nobody but you can completely know what to choose.

Making a choice is an act of will
that shapes your life to your dimensions.
Everyone inevitably makes ‘wrong’ choices sometimes,
    and that’s okay.

    You
are the choices you make in life.

          
  Your future is not set in stone,
                    it is determined by the choices you make.”

You always do what you want to do.
This is true with every act.

You may say that you had to do something,
or that you were forced to, but actually,
whatever you do, you do by choice.

Only you
have the power to choose for yourself. 4
Destiny is not a matter of chance,
it is a matter of choice;

it is not a thing to be waited for,
it is a thing to be achieved. 5

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the people I cannot change;

The courage to change the one I can;

And the wisdom
To know
That person is me. 6
Many of our choices in life are simply reactions
to what happens to us or around us,
to what others have done,
or what we
think they have done,
or are doing,
without checking.

Your life can become difficult at any time.
Your life can become unhappy at any time.
Your life can become easy at any time.
Your life can become happy at any time.
    It all depends upon you and your decisions:

                            choices;

how you adjust yourself to life.

           Positive thinking
    is simply reacting positively
to a negative situation.

Often choices we make
are based on what we perceive
others want us to do,
and thus not being in control of our own destiny.

Other choices we make
are often based on impulse,
    or fear,
    or hurt,
    or confusion,
    or panic,
    or desperation,
    or anger.
           Most of those result in long-term negative outcomes;
                   “from the frying pan into the fire”.

                    Choices.
            We all make them everyday.
    Some are good, and some are not so good.
You can surrender your destiny to the desires of others,
or you can make your own.

We can make choices that help us to move forward through adversity,
or move beyond or through some of life's issues.

Choices.
   We make hundreds of choices in our lives.

Other people make hundreds of choices.
We might wish and hope that we can change other peoples' choices. . .
whatever they may be,
    (but we can’t)”.

"You're alive.
Do something."

The directive in life,
the moral imperative was so uncomplicated.

It could be expressed in single words,
not complete sentences.

It sounded like this:

"Look.
Listen.
Choose.

Act."  1

Look, Listen, Choose:
The "right" choice, is a tricky concept, because it is basically a judgement word or statement;
there  is what is right for you, and there's what is right for the other person. After all, we are each
unique, and what works for some, doesn't work for all.
    “You have your way.
    I have my way.
            As for the right way,
            the correct way,
            and the only way,
                    it does not exist.” 7
