There is a reason they say choice is easy.
Choosing is easy, almost subconscious. Often we find we’ve already made the choice. We spend the rest of our time trying to legitimize our bias, or to rationalize our choice. But the choice is easy.
The challenge is when it comes to actually ‘doing’ the thing we’ve chosen.
The work is hard.
It is useful to understand why we made the choice. This can help with motivation. It can be very useful to remind yourself that your life is complicated and messy by choice. You are not a victim. You have chosen the path you are on today. Why are you here?
The choice was easy. The path is hard.
You are doing the difficult work of living.
