There’s Always A Choice (Even if you can’t imagine what it could be)…

I’ve come to the conclusion that it isn’t our lives that are “messed up,” but rather the choices we make regarding how we we will conduct our lives.

And this reminds me of a quotation from one of my favorite books, Man’s Search for Meaning, by the late Dr. Viktor Frankl, an Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, and Holocaust survivor:

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.

Dr. Frankl chose to live, in the same Nazi concentration camps that took the lives of his family and friends, and share with others what he’d learned about coping, survival, and the irrepressible, inextinguishable human spirit.

Namaste.
