Choices

Some choices come to us in a flash and in that same flash we can see which option to choose, the right choice is obvious.  Other choices slide up on us slowly like a shadow moving across the lawn.

Which comes to us first, the opportunity or the choice?  Conventional wisdom holds that things happen and we cope, we deal and we make our choice of what to do – which path to take.  I believe that much of the time it works the other way.  We decide we want a change and then it happens.  Long long before you pick your new house, the colour for the wall or that new pair of shoes…you decided you needed something and whether you knew it or not you thought about what that might be.
