I have the privilege of observing people make choices each and every day. Whether or not they are going to donate on a particular day. Whether or not they are going to have my cousin, Mic, and I DJ their wedding. Whether or not someone will give a retweet to any of the posts I put together for a client.
The power of choice, I believe, has grown stronger The power of choice has not grown stronger. It has been the same since Adam & Eve chose to eat the apple. What I mean is that with the growth in technology, and the encouragement of children to follow their own individual dreams, more choices are available.
A child in Provo, Utah can hop on the search engine in Instagram and see what is available to a child in Rome, Italy. An individual in Belgium can stroll through a #BelgianIPA hastag and notice someone in Bargersville, Indiana enjoying a cold one (which would be odd to them) at Taxman Brewing Company.
But what I’m getting at is that every individual has the power of choice at their fingertips. We make daily choices – who to follow, what to eat, when to take a break, and more. We make choices off of advice – pick your battles, turn that frown upside down, and YOLO. (It’s okay to use YOLO sparingly… Drake apologized for it.)
My first Feel Good Friday… I wanted to bring this to light. It should make everyone feel good to know that you have a choice.
You can make your life what you want it to be… you have a choice.
You can decide to make someone’s life more positive… you have a choice.
You can connect with others throughout the world or you can foster a relationship with someone nearby… you have a choice.
Choice may be the most powerful tool we have at our disposal.
