Alone with my thoughts
I think of the day
And the choices made
Along the way.

Some I know
Were the right ones to make
While other results
Some time will take.

So many choices
Result in mistake
But I can't let the past
Cause me to hesitate.

I just keep on choosing
As at the moment seems right
While keeping my goals
Plainly in sight.

Success can be measured
By results good and bad
That come from the making
Of choices we had.

Seems like a person goes along making good choices on little things, then some big issue comes up and , "kerpow", face plant time. Maybe that's just how life is.

To me there is no such thing as bad choices, wrong choices Yes.

It's the wrong choices by which we grow, it's the wrong choices by which we learn.

Thank God for wroung choices, if we only made good choices we would miss out on so much life has to offer.

Wrong choices when corrected make us so much better. It's the wrong choices that we overcome that make us a better person.

I thank God for the wrong choices I have made. They are what have made me the person I am today.

I can't imagine going though life only making good choices, how boring.
