Choices - to choose something or someone over another, to make a conscious decision to go for an alternative option when presented with many.
Choices, we make them all the time, some are part of our everyday decisions and they come to us easily without thinking much or losing sleep over them. For example, I look at my son. 23 making a conscious choice everyday to go to the gym come rain or shine. He has been doing it for so long now, he doesn't even think about whether to go or not, he knows he wants to do it, he has chosen to do it and he does it without fail.
There are times when one finds themselves in situations that make them feel as if they've been placed between the devil and the deep blue sea and in as much as none of the situations look appealing to them, they have to make a choice, as difficult as it may be, a choice to dance with the devil or a choice to swim and woe betide that their swimming skills are like mine, which is nil, then they are left with one choice.
Choices hmmm choices, they can be hard to make if one forgets the values one believes in, the values that makes one hold their heads up high even in adversity, the values that remind one that one's integrity is everything and changing one's true self just so one can fit into the crowd or become part of the "in" circle is not worth it.
Choices, we are faced with them daily, we make them daily, conscious ones and unconscious ones, good ones and ever so often bad ones to our own detriment. Remember, nothing is forced upon us, we make our own choices and whatever we continue to chose is what will become the norm.
