"While we are free to choose, once we have made those choices, we are tied to the consequences of those choices."
-Russell Nelson

Each of us has two distinct choices to make about what we will do with our lives. The first choice we can make is to be less than we have the capacity to be. To earn less. To have less. To read less and think less. To try less and discipline ourselves less. These are the choices that lead to an empty life. These are the choices that, once made, lead to a life of constant apprehension instead of a life of wondrous anticipation.

And the second choice? To do it all! To become all that we can possibly be. To read every book that we possibly can. To earn as much as we possibly can. To give and share as much as we possibly can. To strive and produce and accomplish as much as we possibly can. All of us have the choice.

To do or not to do. To be or not to be. To be all or to be less or to be nothing at all. A simple idea, yet so often elusive and hard to see... which path is the one?

Life tends to be confusing most of the time but isn't there a somewhere in the middle choice? isn't that what middle class is when it comes to earning, my kind of people that read a maximum of 5 books a year?
I chose to want to be all but most likely will be most. I don't know if this makes any sense haha.
