Intentional choices

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Be driven by intentional choices, by what will make a difference in your life, not by momentary whims.

Every day, every hour of your life, is precious. Invest your time accordingly, doing what really matters, and being present for those you love.

There’s plenty of time for you to have an awesome life, whatever your age, whatever your situation. Just a few minutes spent in the service of what you care about is enough to make the day an amazing one.

You can choose today to rise above the petty disputes and meaningless diversions. You can choose to focus on the beauty, the possibilities, and work to create new richness.

Every time you feel joy, sadness, regret, enthusiasm, let the feeling remind you of all that truly matters. And re-dedicate yourself, your time, your energy, your efforts to those things.

This day is filled with choices, and those choices can take you far. The life you wish to live becomes real as you continue to choose it in every moment.
