I was talking to a friend today about this very subject. We all make choices every day that truly make up our life and our consequences ( which are a direct result of our choices ). And the answer seems so easy to just say ...".make better choices"...but saying and doing are certainly different things, and one is much harder than the other. There are cycles that we get in, thought patterns and some of those aren't easy to change and probably could be made easier if we sought professional help.
Someone once said to me that they couldn't see a counselor because they thought that would be labeling their self weak. I on the other hand feel just the opposite. I think people who are trying to get their life, their head, their thoughts and their actions in balance, and go get counseling...are very strong people. I think anyone who is actively striving to get more peace, wisdom and balance in their lives...are those who are on the right track. Shouldn't we all be actively working toward a better life, a more secure and grounded life? Couldn't we all use a bit more PEACE in our lives? Yes, I really do believe...it is all about our choices.
Now I am going to make a good choice right now and go to bed early!
Good night dear friends!

Four decide to jump off. How many are left?
Answer: five. Why? Because there's a difference between deciding and doing."

"Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your spirit. That is the real meaning of peace."
