Choices Make A Difference
The quote, “If everything’s the same, then there aren’t any choices! I want to wake up in the morning and decide things!” is a crucial thought to my life. Differences let you make a choice, and being the same would be plain. We can create a careless or good choice. Our feelings and mind affects our choices at times. There are times we want to have courage, so we take the chance anyways. It turns out to be the wrong choice and we end up facing the consequence. The consequence can be a variety of things. One consequence can have a more immense effect than the other. Choices are crucial. One choice can turn anything around fast.
According to James E. Faust, he says that choices can give us opportunities and if we delay it then the chance may never be there again. The statement is accurate because every second we have a chance to have a different result depending on what we decide. In “The Giver,” Jonas has a successful plan but chooses to take Gabriel with him which makes the situation change. Jonas could have stayed in the community, but he decided to take the chance to leave at night because he was striving to see a world of colors and differences. What I choose to speak, say, or do in my life can affect me and others. Choices can be mistakes or wonderful events, but we still absorb knowledge from them. Choices give us understanding on the situation and which choice is the wisest.. Everything is a choice in our life, and the reason we have choices is because of differences.
