Always choosing

You’re always choosing.

You’re choosing how to live, what to care about, who to speak to, how to speak, what to listen to, what to dedicate yourself to, what to notice, what to ignore.

Even your choice not to choose is a choice. As is your choice to carry that which has been given to you by others – your culture, your organisation, your family, your history, your friends.

When you see this, maybe you’ll rediscover your responsibility to choose wisely, with care. And, even if you continue choosing everything in exactly the same way as you are already, you’ll at last start becoming the author of a life you can call your own.
