Thursday Thought

When Facebook was the "new thing" you use to be able to have a quote or a phase next to your photo. One of my cousins had a quote next to her photo that I think is quite profound and it has stuck with me all this time. It is a quote that I think about often and it has become one of my favorites.

"The choices we make dictate the lives we lead." - William Shakespeare

We make thousands of choices each and every day. Each of those choices we make may seem insignificantly small and meaningless but each each choice will lead us somewhere. The consequences of the choices we make may be good or bad, but we don't get to choose them. We just get to make a choice.

Take a moment and think about your life. Where are you at? Are you where you want to be? Are you happy? Are you the person you want to be? Are you living up to your full potential?

Now, think about the choices you made to get to where you are at this point in life. If you aren't where you want to be, what changes can you make in your life to get you there?
