You are what you choose.

I’ve been thinking about personal responsibility lately. Soren Kierkegaard said, “We create ourselves by our choices,” a statement that is generally true. Most of my life I’ve had the good fortune to choose between good, better and best. But if we learn one thing from Les Miserable it is, that in desperate times, when choices are few, good people will be pushed by circumstances into choosing between bad and not as bad; they are not choosing between good, better or best. Even then though, what Kierkegaard said is true~ we create ourselves by our choices, even when we choose between bad and not as bad.
