We are all facing choices that define us.
No choice, however messy, is without importance in the overall picture of our lives.
We all at our own age have to claim something, even if it’s only our own confusion.
-Sabrina Ward Harrison, submitted by Jennifer H., San Luis Obispo CA
Any change, any loss, does not make us victims.
Others can shake you, disappoint you,
but they can’t prevent you from acting,
from taking the situation you’re presented with and moving on.
No matter where you are in life,
no matter what your situation,
you can always do something.
You always have a choice
and the choice can be power.
-Blaine Lee, submitted by David D., Oklahoma City OK
You might be pondering who to vote for,
whether to make a substantial change at work/school,
or how to deal with a minor or significant challenge in your life.
Every choice you make this week is an opportunity to
explore alternative options,
consider possible downsides, and
remember that each decision you make has the potential to
transform your tomorrow!
