    Our Choices

    We all have choices in everything we do. We all have to decide on how we will choose, what we will choose and what is for the best. Our choices are like our footprints, marking where we have been or come from and where we will go.When we make a choice it says who we are to some...

    Life gives you opportunities.

    It is your choice what you do with them. I don't like to say "I told you so", but the truth is: I told you so. I don't understand when someone can clearly see the difference between two choices, the good one and the bad one, and still knowing that, they go for the bad one. When...

    Do We Ever....

    Take a trip down the choice highway and you will be lost for days... For instance: You are here on earth at this very time, because of the choices made by a man and a woman (your parents), both of whom had to make the exact choices throughout their life (prior to your birth), in...

    Choices Made

    Had a drink up with an old friend, we enjoyed ourselves, and our talk about memory lane. Both of us 21 years of age, but it seemed we aged beyond our years. We shared our laughs and thoughts on our actions in the past. The misunderstood children we once were. Who thought that the...

    Life; The Gateway Drug

    It is easy to get so caught up in the activity of this earthly experience that we forget where the real power lies. We can become enamored by the people around us, the exciting events and the enticing opportunities. We may also seek to overcome the obstacles by placing primary...

    Freedom Of Choice

    Yes, we all have choices - we can choose to accept or decline, we choose to say yes or no, we choose how to react or respond to given situations and we make our choices based on what we perceive to deliver the most favourable outcome. My mother once told me that when she and my...

    Every path you choose to take has consequences.

    Some are bearable, some are not. I had to make a choice between a life that has opportunities for me to grow and prosper, and a life that is merely controlled by someone's thoughts and beliefs, which I respect. I love that person and she's very dear to my heart. She's older...

    Most of the time we know exactly what the choice should be, but we choose wrong. We always select the most convenient and ready choice. Anything else but an easy choice would mean we actually had respect for ourself and others. When we always make the wrong choice, we cheat...

    I never thought that i would be trapped with

    two people. I never thought of being squished cos of the fact that I gotta choose which one. I did not want to hurt any one, but it's part of it. I hope I would not regret the choice I made.
