Wise Words On Wednesday: Important Choices
You were made to choose how you live your life, not to let life simply happen to you. If life is just happening to you, then you’re caught up in the mire and mediocrity of accidental living. An accidental life will never be fulfilling to a creature that was made to choose.
We are here to make important choices. The problem is that we’re so busy that we perpetually put off such choices for just one more day…and life quickly passes us by.
It’s all too easy to mindlessly fill our lives with noisy distractions and busy ourselves with endless activities. We find ourselves simply reacting to a never-ending stream of stimulations, constantly tied up with the urgent and never quite getting to the important. Rather than seizing the day, the day seems to be seizing us! We often feel overwhelmed and helpless, hopelessly held captive by the circumstances of our lives
