Choices, choices

“Life is about choices. Some we regret, some we’re proud of. Some will haunt us forever. We are what we chose to be.” ~Graham Brown

Choices have consequences. Every day we make choices that create or reinvent who we are — and those choices impact the people around us.

Even the most personal choices stir a ripple effect. The food we select at the grocery, for instance, is integral to our health and wellbeing — a choice that impacts our family, our loved ones. The friends we choose have a powerful influence on our habits, beliefs, and even our reputation. And every political vote we cast directly affects the lives of others in our community, our country.

Which choices are you proud of, and which ones do you regret? ~CL
