Life seems just a game of choice until you find out it’s no game at all. Everything you do matters. All the choices you made, willingly or not, brought you to this moment in your life. Now, the question is, do you like where you are? And do you like who you are?
We tend to appraise our value by comparing ourselves with someone else. This will never work. Mainly because we are different people who lived different lives. We are the sum of all we have lived and there are no two humans that lived identical lives.
What I found to be a better solution or at least a solution that works in my favor, is to compare the man I am today with the one I was yesterday. If I manage to add a little value to myself each day I can go to sleep at peace with myself. This way of thinking made me the man I am today. I still have a lot to improve, but I am thankful for where I am and who I am.
The choices I made brought love to my life. A gift that keeps on giving. They lead me to extraordinary people that I can now call my friends.
The way I see it, life is the result of all our thoughts and choices. So next time you need to make a choice, be true to yourself. You might thank yourself for that in the future.
