to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not to compete.
I choose self-esteem, not pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice,
not the random opinion of others."
What do you choose?
I found this quote by random, and it really struck a chord.
How often do we choose the lesser path?
How easy is it to give in to the negative, rather than the positive?
I have had issues in my life and looking back, I can see where
the choices I made didn't reflect this list of choices very well.
As I gain years, and hopefully wisdom too, I choose these things
above the alternatives. It is my goal for 2017 to live a better life,
doing more and worrying less what others think.
Now's the time to ponder and evaluate the past 12 months,
and to focus on a new me in the next 12 months!
And oh yes, fall is finally here -- time to break out some sleeves!
