Episode 24

Living is about making choices, right? But how do we make those choices, if we do…, and why or why not?

Today’s quote is titled: THE WILL TO CHOOSE

It is not necessarily that there are no choices…, or that we ran out of choices…. Instead…, it may be that we ran out of ideas in the stress of the moment…. On the other hand…, it may simply be that we lose the Will…, the will to choose another course of action…, another way to think…, another way to live…, unquote.

Often enough the shock of the moment…, or the stress of the experience, temporarily paralyzes our minds. It is only after a few moments, or in some cases, much longer…, that we are able to think or reflect on just what happened or is happening.

Sometimes ideas or different courses of actions may be out of reach…, or one not necessarily better than the other, or…, that we simply don’t know.

Still…, a choice remains necessary to be made.  Sometimes all the information we think we need may not readily be available…, and this is often the case. But life must continue, and the sooner we put the experience behind us…, the sooner we will be able to see our way forward…, see another way to live.

So…, yes. What is living?

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for….
