Life is about experiences and choices.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Life is about experiences and choices. Own the choices you make. You can choose to work hard in school. You can choose to have a positive outlook on life. You can choose to drive drunk and kill someone’s loved ones in a car accident. These are choices we can make, or not make.

Think about the choices you have made in your life. Are you proud of all of them? Have you made the best choices for you, your family or others? Be responsible for your choices in life and the results of these choices, good or bad.

Remember, it’s never too late to choose to do the right thing. It may not generate the outcome you want, but as long as you are breathing you can make choices you believe to be the right ones for you and have a fresh start. Every day is a new day.

Everyday choices determine who you are and who you will ultimately become. Don’t underestimate the importance of the little things you do everyday. Focus on these things and make them meaningful for you and others.

For example:

Choose to be happy today.

Choose to send a thank-you note to someone today.

Choose to do what you think the right things are for you and your family everyday.

UR the person you choose to be!
