Simple choices…

The sun sets on another day…

Snow snow snow! Lots of snow falls all around, and well, there is a sunset up there!

I was thinking today about all the things that shape us into who we are each day. A lot of people look at all the biggest points in their lives and think that those things made them and shaped their being. They may be right. I know that some key pivot points and decisions in my life made huge differences. I also know I was shaped by a multitude of smaller choices, simple choices that made resounding differences.

Simple choices can be something as minor as what to wear to an interview, what to eat, what to drink, how you walk, your morning routine, how you sleep, and so many more. It is those sometimes overlooked choices that sometimes have a profound impact on your life.

A good example, I walked to school when I was in high school. (Until I got my car). It was a long walk. About 2 miles in the morning and 2 miles at night. That walk each day made me feel better and in the process I talked to people along the way. It helped shape me into who I am even though it was a minor decision.

What things have you done in the past that seemed minor at the time but you now realize meant something? What things can you do now that seem small but make a difference? Do you think you make good choices? Why or why not?

It is a fun series of thoughts.

So as the sun sets on another day, sometimes those little things add up, and sometimes you just get lost in them and realize they add up, and can make you a better or worse person. Take the time, enjoy the moments, and in the process make every moment count, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love some more…
