Every day, we get to choose whether we are going to live better or die faster.
While we cannot control all of the external variables of our lives, we can control how we respond to and interact with them.
We get to choose how we behave.
We do not get to choose the entirety of the situation within which we find ourselves, but we do get to decide how we are going to live based on that situation.
We get to choose whether we are going to use our current situation to make our lives better or worse.
And, we get to choose whether we are going to use our lives to make other people’s lives better or worse.
These are not decisions we make only once.
If we choose poorly today, we can always change our minds and our course tomorrow.
But, we must keep in mind that these day-to-day decisions add up.
The choices we make from day-to-day compile on top of one another.
This happens for better or for worse.
We must decide, therefore, what kind of investment we are trying to make from day-to-day in ourselves, our lives, and the world around us.
