The other day I called a friend to encourage him in love and good deeds. I got his voice mail, so I left a message. In the process I articulated something that has been intriguing me ever since.
Who we are is the sum of our choices. This means that simply by making a right choice today, you can be a different person tomorrow then you were yesterday.
The cumulative effect of these choices determines who we are and who we are becoming. The power of this realization is that it rejects the power of the past to dictate who we are and are becoming, and frees up our future to be determined by our actions today.
