Every choice I make each day shapes my life experience. Choosing to get out of bed in the morning is a choice. Going to work, what I listen to on the radio, watch on television, taking quality time with loved ones, how much time I spend checking email, surfing the web, talking to a friend, stopping for a beer after work or making plans for the weekend are all choices. I make hundreds of them daily that combined set the course of my existence. Once I accepted the truth that more than any other force I shape my life, fundamental change became possible. Through a thousand little choices made differently over time small changes become substantial differences. I make choices and then the choices make me.
I do not seek perfection.
I simply seek to remember
who and what I am every day.
I seek the people and places and practices
that support the expanding of this awareness
in my day, in my life, in choices.
