Each day we face choices. When you wake up in the morning, you must choose between returning to the warmth of your blanket and softness of your pillow, or rising to meet the onslaught of the breaking dawn. In my case, it’s the urgent call of nature that helps me to decide.
As we progress through our daily lives, we chose what we want to wear based weather, what’s available, my case- ironed or wrinkled, and for many-what others are wearing. We select the brand of coffee we brew, what we desire for breakfast, and even whether we are going to feed the cat. I could go on and on, but I am quite sure I have made my point.
Having said this, is it not logical that when confronted with fear or pain, depression, or anger, that we consciously chose to allow these things to dominate us? During my tour in the military, I found myself in several situations where I had to choose between facing the reality that I was wounded or that it was just a fantasy. Reality won.
Even today, we have to choose between fact and fiction concerning the prevailing epidemic.
The question here is, how does one make the right decision? Decisions based on previous experiences, coupled with current realities, is an excellent starting point. Add to the equation, a good heaping spoonful of gut instinct, and a massive pinch of common sense. You are good to go.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
