Choices in Life

One of my favorite blogs to read is Awareness and Consciousness because of all the wisdom that is shared there....

In a previous post, I talked about how we can either choose to be happy or depressed in life. Kavit Haria, writer for Awareness and Consciousness, also talks about the "choices" in life in relation to the recent release of a death row inmate, Juan Roberto Melendez-Colon:

"The biggest message I was able to take away from his talk is “choices.” Juan put a lot of emphasis on understanding that each and everyone has a choice. He said he made the choice to forgive those who got him in their for nearly 18 years because it was his choice. If he chose to continue being angry, it would only hurt him inside and so his choice was to forgive. He spoke about times on Florida’s death row where he nearly gave up, thought of suicide and just didn’t see the point. But what came to his rescue were letters from his friends and family - especially his “mama” who wrote to believe in himself and in God and that it would be okay. Well, as he has shown, he made the choice to follow his “mama’s” words and so he was freed!"

What choices have you made in your life?
