What Is Life?

The Choice is ours

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 Choices
Walking Thru Life Is As Easy As Walking On Water

Where did we begin?
Where do we think we are going?
Do we want to know and do we even care?

The path that we take
Is it chosen for us?
Or do we somehow get there and not know it.

How do we decide?
Where to go, how to go?

Are some people born knowing?
And are some just searching?

Which one would we rather be?
The all-knowing or the searcher

Life’s a tough game.
We can choose to be a shadow, or be a leader

We can choose to be the driver, or just sit along for the ride

Life is an amazing gift that we all have been given

The choice is OURS….It’s up to US to decide how we choose to live it.
