The Greatest Gift

Life itself is certainly the greatest gift any of us were given, but after that I would contend that the greatest gift we are given is our right to choose.  Choice is what happens between stimulus and response.  When someone leaves our life, or it rains all day, or we start a new job, it is our decision how to feel and how to react.  So often we choose to let things upset us, or to blame someone else, but the number one key is that we are always at choice, and this is an amazing gift.  Animals don’t have this gift, they are at the mercy of humans who decide if they survive or not and where.  

The greatest gift we are given after life itself is choice.  Don’t discount it, don’t disrespect it, and don’t take it away from others.
