Every day we make decisions. Decisions about when to get out of bed (how many snoozes the alarm will have), what to wear, what to eat, when to eat. And then there are the mundane decisions that are made for us by others leaving us to decide whether we will abide by those decisions. Sometimes we may feel like we have no choice about something, but there’s always a choice. It’s not necessarily a good choice: either to face the bear with your back to the cliff, or jump off the cliff, but it’s still a choice.
