the best we can isn't as difficult as many people make it
sound. After all, we can show the best of ourselves
in almost all of the decisions that we make, in the
choices that we make. And many of our choices have
to do with whether or not we're going to use our God-given
talents to their greatest potential, or if we're going to
allow them to lie latent, unused, untapped.
I'm going to choose or react. I can choose the way I
speak to people, the tone of voice I use, the tasks that
I'll undertake, the amount of time I choose to rest, the
face that I show to the world at any given moment.
Or I can choose simply to react, to allow other people's
words and actions cause me to act in certain ways.
If I choose the latter set of choices, though, I can
guarantee you that the best of me will not be shining
I choose to do the same things I've always done, or do I
choose to spread my wings a bit and take a bit of a risk
in order to explore the extent of my abilities? Do I
choose at each moment to try to show the best side of
myself? Do I choose to make the best choices, or do
I allow just any old choice to become my action?
all can grow towards becoming the best people we can, and
the only way to do so is to pay attention to the choices
we're making--and to the fact that we're making choices at
all. Only then can we truly try to become the best
people we possibly can be.
