Thank you Carol. Yes, we have opportunities to make cheiocs every day. Each choice will either move us closer to where we want to be or further away. Sometimes we get caught up in the moment and make the wrong cheiocs. The best thing a person can do is become aware of it as soon as possible, learn from the experience, make adjustments and move on. I see too many people beating themselves up for wrong cheiocs they made. This only keeps them in that negative mindset longer.
