The ability to make choices is like muscles – the less we exercise, the more we lose them.
A day doesn’t have to go badly just because something goes wrong, one choice is to turn it around. Walking away from negative people is a choice whether for the moment or permanently. Boredom can be avoided – the choice is ours to shake things up. And the thing is, it’s also fun to give away your ability to freely choose from time to time. A friend I dined with used to look at the menu and ask the server what would you eat – you know this menu. Then he would say, I’ll have that. Choice not chance. Active choice keeps us from becoming victims of circumstances.
