The right path and easy path are usually two different things, and when it’s time to choose, always choose the right path over the easy.
We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.
Beryl, on death: “No, you should never choose death, but it chooses you. Sometimes you know it’s coming, like my mother, and sometimes it takes you by surprise, like my friend Ariel’s uncle who got killed in a hunting accident. Sooner or later, we all get chosen, we all get taken from this world into the next. Whether we end up in Heaven or Hell, and what we do with our lives in the meantime-those are the choices we get to make.
When the universe compels me toward the best path to take, it never leaves me with “maybe,” “should I,” or even “perhaps.” I always know for sure when it’s telling me to proceed – because everything inside me rises up to reverberate “YES!
I believed our touching to be more intense because of it’s very holding back. Belief is always a choice.
You Are the Master of Your Attitude
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control the way you think about all the events. You always have a choice. You can choose to face them with a positive mental attitude.
I am sorry my decisions do not meet with your approval, but nevertheless, they are mine, and the consequences are also mine.
We all have the same 24/7. What we do with our time becomes our priority. Choose what you do with your time and do not lead a life by default
It is so much less exhausting. You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day. You have to keep remembering all the bad things … I would have to make a list, a very, very long list and make sure I hated the people on it the right amount … No … we always have a choice. All of us.” (p. 323)
God will help you make the choices that guide you into His path for each stage and age of your life.
