You choose

There are endless opportunities for joy in this moment, and there are endless opportunities for misery. Which will you choose?

There are plenty of great reasons to move forward with life, and just as many excuses for doing nothing. Which will you choose?

There are all sorts of challenges that will help you grow stronger, and numerous ways to avoid them. Which will you choose?

There are things you can do that will create much value, and other things that will merely pass the time. Which will you choose?

There are ways you can follow the best of your dreams, and ways to avoid any effort at all. Which will you choose?

The life you live is made up of your choices, in this and every moment. You have the choice now, so which life will you choose?

— Ralph Marston
