Decision is a risk rooted in the courage of being free.
-- Paul Tillich


Tuesday, October 20, 1998


There is nothing you must do. Everything you do is, directly or indirectly, what you choose to do. The people, things and situations which make up your life are the result of your own choices. Is there any point in feeling resentment toward them, or in blaming them when life does not meet your expectations?

The choices you have already made brought you to where you are right now. The choices you make now, can take you wherever you want to go. Though you may feel trapped and powerless, that is not the case at all. You can choose to overcome your obstacles. You can choose to follow your dream.

There is no escaping the fact that today you will make choices. Those choices will determine the course of your life. Everything you do, everything you have, everything you become is ultimately the result of the choices you have made. You have the power to direct your life. How will you use it right now? What’s your choice?

— Ralph Marston
