The Choice

I love this movie/book so much and below is one of my favorite quotes. I think sometimes we forget that we are in charge of our own lives. We are constantly faced with choices & decisions that together shape the future.

I see so many people staying in situations where they are unhappy, but they continually make excuses for why it simply couldn’t be any other way. From unhealthy relationships to stressful employment, they continually allow themselves to lead a life they don’t want and hold themselves back from finding true happiness.

I have been guilty of it myself, which is why I no longer hold much hesitation when it comes to expressing the way I feel, even if it might not be what someone wants to hear. I don’t want to waste their time and I am sure as hell not going to waste any more of my own candy coating or tip toeing around the subject…that’s just silly.

And besides, if life has taught me anything, it is that with the ones you love and those that truly love you in return, that is not something you need to worry about, because you appreciate one another just the way you are.

“Now, pay attention, cause I’m about to tell you the secret to life…

Ready?

The whole damn thing is about decisions.

Little seemingly insignificant decisions that  clear the road for monster truck like altering ones.

You see, every path you take, leads to another choice.

And some choices…can change everything.

Every damn moment of the rest of your life hangs on them.

And boy do I have a choice to make…”
