I remember being told when I was a kid to 'make good choices'. Of course I had to learn about good choices by making some bad ones - that's part of life and part of growing up. It seems to me that there are a lot of people making really bad choices in our world right now, though. Every day it seems that there is another heartbreak that could have been avoided if someone had made the opposite choice. I believe in the good in people and tell my kids to look for it while still counseling them to be cautious with their safety. I have to focus on the positive for my own sanity but I admit to a desire to yell at some people to 'make goo choices'! Okay, stepping off of my soapbox now.
