Hard choices, easy life. Easy choices, hard life. – Jerzy Gregorek

The easy choices are all around us.

Order food, don’t make it. 

Settle with the wrong partner because it’s easier than having the hard conversations.

Stay at your job that is unfulfilling and brutish. 

Deciding not to exercise because you’re too tired. (as a habit)

Many of us have made easy choices in the past that have led to quite miserable situations. 

I’m not against ordering food, but, if that’s all you do, and it’s not specifically healthful food for you, it’s likely not the best choice. 

Each of these choices above, are choices. Some are in fact very difficult choices, some are influenced by our own environment and life experiences, some don’t feel or resemble much of a choice at all. 

And many will never come to realize that these are choices as they have been shackled to their environment for too long. 

Once we realize that they are choices, we have the power to choose a different path.
