Regardless of the circumstances you face, you always have the ability to choose. Right or left, up or down, action or no action.
Each decision we make has a consequence, each road a destination. Choosing the road of least resistance can cause crooked rivers and crooked men.
Investing the time to think through the possible consequences of our choices can make a difference in which choice we make. The choice we make will determine our direction. Our direction will determine where we end up.
