Everything is a Choice

For the most part, I weigh what I choose to weigh. Genes and metabolism can surly influence, but I’ve chosen the body I have. I’ve never accidentally eaten anything. I’ve never woken up to someone shoving oreos down my throat. Everything is choice.

It just comes down to making the right choices, even if it doesn’t feel good at the moment. It’s giving your mind power over your brain.

Blogging is something I’ve gone in and out of. Sort of like a relapsing alcoholic, I’ll get really into it, then a dry spell. I’ve always been interested in blogging, but have never planted my roots firmly anywhere.

Seth Godin unlocked something today with his blog post on Talker’s Block.

Writing is one thing I’d like to really improve this year and the only way to do it is by writing. We don’t wake up in the morning and not talk until we have something profound to say. We talk enough so that we eventually say something profound.

While this blog already has five or so posts so far, consider this a real launch. From today on, my goal is to blog once a day.

Because if you can’t pull away at least one thing you learned each day, what have you really done?

    You make a crucial point, that holding ourselves accountable for everything we choose is a liberating and honest point of view.

    It’s important to note that — for a lot of folks without as much social privilege, resources and access — many people still make choices, but have fewer options to choose from.

    You are aware of your choice; often not aware of why. That’s about it.¬†http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/print/2011/07/the-brain-on-trial/8520/
