If most things could be boiled down to their simplest forms, they would all be reduced to choices. As every second passes, you are being asked and constantly beckoned to choose. Even on days when it feels like you have no choice to make, you can still choose your perspective.
You could witness time withering away or you could choose to harness it. You may not be able to determine the consequences, but the choice will always be yours to make.
Every moment comes with a choice.
