Before I talk about choices, I wanted to mention that I know a lot of these “Good Life” posts are fairly common knowledge. Obvious advice to most of you. But when I write, I imagine my 20-year-old self coming across this information . . . all of the advice I’m sharing is “stuff” I wish I had known when I was younger. Ideas or suggestions that would’ve helped me live life in a healthier way. So, if they’re not for you, you can just skip right ahead to the next recipe. If they help, I’m glad. Even if they are just reminders of things you knew but have forgotten, then they’re doing their job. Can’t hurt. Right? Now . . . on to choices:
Realize that while you have freedom to make choices in life, you don’t have the freedom to choose the consequences. You may choose a certain path, but do you know where that path leads? Look down the road a ways before you start down that path. Do you like what you see? Do you like where you are headed? If not, turn around. Choose another path. Make good choices. Think through things beforehand. Ask yourself if you’re ready for the consequences that come with your choices. Because they are a package deal. Consequences come with the choice whether you like it or not.
