Byers writes that our life's decisions come down to selecting or rejecting the opportunities presented before us. We want to select the friends, jobs, activities, etc. which will benefit us and reject those that will harm us.
It sounds so simple, but is advice I do not follow. It requires me to slow down and examine life AS I live it. Not after I make decisions, before I make them. I need to spend more time analyzing my actions daily. Not weeks, months, or years later.This post was inspired by the book "The Mother Load" by Mary M. Byers.
