one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

in the pursuit of a life dream.

the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
