There are plenty of things in life that we have no control over. For example, the weather, the economy, genetics, and most every other person on the planet, just to name a few. However, there are a number of variables in life that we do have control over.
Of those variables, the lever of control we have is choice. We can choose our responses, our behavior, our outlook, the words we use, the course we chart for our life.
This knowledge should be a constant reminder to us to make wise choices. The choices we make today impacts the quality of our tomorrows.
