Choice

Choice is more than picking ‘x’ over ‘y.’ It is a responsibility to separate the meaningful and the uplifting from the trivial and the disheartening. It is the only tool we have that enables us to go from who we are today to who we want to be tomorrow.  -Sheena Iyengar

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about choice; about how it is both a responsibility and an opportunity.  Also about how it follows us from moment to moment.

It is so easy to loose track of a desire to stay present and committed to the types of choices you want to make for yourself in daily life.  It’s easy to tell yourself that certain conditions have minimized or eliminated the choices available to you.

But, if you consider choice to be an expression of your values, and you remind yourself of that every time you can, there is an ever-present option to recalibrate, decide what it is that you want and choose accordingly.
