Small negative choices

Do you really need to make that snide remark? Will it bring any lasting value to anyone’s life?

Do you really need to think that demeaning thought about someone else? Will it solve any problem or lead to any achievement?

Do you really need that empty momentary pleasure? Or are there perhaps more healthy and fulfilling ways to spend your time?

No one makes the big choice to live a life of negativity and despair. Yet everyone makes small choices that can lead in that direction.

Fortunately, those small negative choices are easy to replace with positive choices. The more often that happens, the better life becomes.

In every little choice, be aware of what you are choosing. Your choices add up to the life you live, so make all your choices accordingly.
