“All get what they want; they do not always like it.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia
You have voted for the life you have, with all of the small decisions you have made over your lifetime.
If you have chosen to sit on the couch playing video games eating Doritos and drinking Mountain Dew, the extra weight you carry is the result of every time you choose a gaming session over a workout.
Every time you decided to do the minimal at work was a vote against you for getting the promotion.
Every time you neglected telling your significant other they looked good, or helping them with a task, or allocated time to playing on your phone instead of communicating with them, you cast your ballot for weakening ties instead of strengthening them.
What do your actions show about your desires? Who are you electing to live your future life?
