When we are young, choices do not seem momentous. Cocoa Puffs or Cheerios? Certainly there are more serious choices to make and if we are fortunate, trusted mentors help us learn to be more effective choosers and that our choices carry consequences. Yet, typically for children choices do not rule life and instead the daily dance is an active bouncing through experiences of seemingly equal importance. As we age we discover that choices seem to multiply; they gain girth, gravitas and lasting significance. The temptation is strong to focus so completely on our choices that we mistakenly believe that we are only living when we are choosing.
