Our Ancestors had very little in the way of choice for each activity that they did through out the day. The one thing that they could choose was how they approached life. The best choice was to be fearless, hopeful, moderate in eating, more quiet than talkative, and very loving.
This sounds like a great mantra for living life every day, even in current times. While many say that we do not have a choice in things, all of the activities above are choices we can make to change our life.
Today, choose one activity and concentrate on achieving it throughout the day.
