I have been thinking quite a bit lately about choice. Such a huge part of our everyday lives, but something I don’t think people think about often. Looking back at my life, I think about the choices I have made. The good and the bad. What has been intriguing me as of late is the long term effects of our choices and decisions in life. How much would even the littlest decision cause a huge change down the road. Also how the decisions and choices I make can change someone else’s life. I look at myself. So many decisions made by other people… parents, teachers, friends… some big and some little, have all had an outcome to make up the person who I am today. I think of my third grade teacher Mrs. Slack who wanted me to take the behavior disorder test knowing it was the same test to place gifted students. I did well, and that single decision changed my life.
Start thinking about the choices and decisions you are making. You never know what could come of them.
