Between a rock and a hard place

One’s destiny unfolds according to the choices one makes.

I’ve always believed that no matter how difficult a situation is, we always have a choice. Between doing what is right or what is wrong, saying “Yes” or saying “No”, getting into a fight or walking away from it, being sad or being happy… Take your pick.

Of course, some decisions seem easier said than done. If we’ve been through a thorny and painful experience, what else are we supposed to feel? Or do? It’s but natural that we cry and wallow in our anguish a bit. No one expects us to run around jumping for joy. But then we have an option: let the pain and sadness consume us or take the steps to accept that whatever it was that happened did happen and begin moving on. We must all decide if we are going to live our lives or if our lives going to live us. Take ownership. Make a choice. Stand firm with that choice. Everything else will fall into place.
