“Life is made up of choices, yet whether we choose to see them is another thing.” #bgdtcoaching.
One of the best, most important and potentially crucial areas of life in which choices abound, is that of our attitude towards life itself. This might include not only our approach to daily endeavours, but also our behaviour towards other living beings.
I imagine few reading this are indifferent towards environmental wellbeing and universal suffering. These things touch us all and choices made over the course of the years to date have surely shaped our life today. Problems begin when choices create conflict between ‘the common good’ and individual values.
For example, whilst I can acknowledge the supposed economic arguments for fracking, I am unable to understand why alternative energy choices deriving from the wind, the sun and the waves are not developed ahead of this controversial method, reportedly linked to earth tremors.
Choices on a more personal level are, on the other hand, something we all have to take responsibility for. Life is made up of choices, yet whether we choose to see them is another thing.
Choices about how we invest our time, energy and personal resources sit next to choices related to dietary, personal development and other questions forming our existence.
I could go on and on but as you most likely have other options available as to how to use your time I will stop now. However, if you’d like to share your input on the issue of choices, please leave a comment below.
