“One side of a ridge is cold and foggy,

The other side is hot and dry.

Just be choosing where you stand,

You alter your destiny.”

~ Deng Ming-Dao Tao Meditations


We make choices every minute that create the pattern of our lives.

From where we call home, to where we stand on an issue, matters.

Life is a one way journey, and there is no going back.

Let your wisdom guide you forward.

Destiny awaits.

  13. Very true! It is easy to forget that your choices have an impact on your life circumstance, even the very little choices. Sometimes you need to think before you act! I know I need to slow down at times. Thank you for sharing.

  14. I think it takes an effort to choose, rather than simply react to something the way we “always have.” But that effort is more than worth it. Thanks for the reminder.

    • Thank you Ann ❣️ the effort comes from pausing and being true to ourselves. It only feels like an effort because we have lost the ability to do so over many years. Let us all build some muscle in making the right choices for ourselves … and the world 💕

  16. An important reminder of our power to choose. Even standing still is a choice. We cannot escape it, so we’d do well to embrace it.
