AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves

Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.

IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.

and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.

and all the trouble started -
expectation, disappointment, resentment, anger -
a whole cycle of suffering that began
with the belief that life is "supposed" to be "fair."
