Choose to do the right thing, the tough thing -- not the familiar easy thing. Choose the way of the warrior or the way of the coward. Make your choice out of love instead of fear. Choose from the heart. Choose to live fully, not to sleepwalk through your life. Choose to respond with the way you really feel, not the way you're supposed to feel. Choose the mineral water over the soda; choose the lemon juice and olive oil over the blue cheese; choose the walk in the park over the ride to the mall. Choose simplicity over extravagance. Choose conversation over the television. Choose to talk things out rather than stew in your anger overnight. Choose compassion and generosity. Choose to smile instead of frown. Make your own choices in your own time and choose to stick with them.

I ran across this wonderful reminder this morning that was printed in one of Stephen R. Covey's "portable" books entitled "Choice: Choosing the Proactive Life You Want to Live" and thought it was well worth sharing. A reminder that our lives are a series of choices we make every day in each moment. What are you choosing, right now?Every moment of every day, choose.
