“Choice follows awareness. The more aware we are, the more choice we have.” -Richard Strozzi-Heckler from his newest book, The Art of Somatic Coaching: Embodying Skillful Action, Wisdom, and Compassion
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” -Viktor Frankl from Man’s Search for Meaning
Even when I think there’s no choice to a situation, I hope to –more often than not– have the presence of mind to be aware and awake, and to remember that I DO have a choice: I can always choose how I think about it, I can always chose my attitude.
“YAHOO – it’s an acronym: You Always Have Other Options.” -Deb Denis
