Choices. Choices. Choices.

Choices.  Choices.  Choices.  What are choices?  Do we even see choices when we really have choices? Are we defined by our choices?  Are we the sum total of our choices?  Do "bad" choices make us a "bad" person?  Do "good" choices make us a "good" person?  How are choices made?  Who or what inside us pushes us to make choices?  How can we grow to make better choices?  The first step might be to come to see (recognize) when we are faced with choices?  Once we see we are faced with choices, what should our next step be?  Can we stop and ask ourselves certain "choices" questions before we make the choice?  What do you think about this?  What have you learned from your experiences about the chain of consequences that flow from choices?  Are all the events that flow from the chain of consequences of  bad choices bad?  Are all the events that flow from a chain of consequences of good choices good?
