Our Lives are Full of Meaningful Moments of Choice
Moments that you get to decide which direction you want your life to move to. You can choose the easy way or a more challenging route. Those times when you can turn towards someone and create a better connection and trust or turn away and stay safe.
You know those times that you’re tempted to text ‘I’m sorry’ because it’s easier instead of calling the person or facing them instead.
A simple moment but a powerful statement of who you want to be.
