Thought for the Day

Who we become depends on the choices we make.
At particular times in our lives, really significant choices
are made that shape our fate.
When we are in a threshold time,
what we decide to do determines what comes next.

Lovely quote - Threshold times - how exciting it would be if more of us actually realized those moments and stepped boldly rather than finding oneself there and stumbling in for better and sometimes best or worse, and thinking later, how did I get here?
