We have the choice. U’vacharta bachaim – choose life. Every one of us is invested with the power to choose good from bad, right from wrong.
We were given the choice at the start of the path and now we have the choice to turn back and start again.
If we have the choice, then it’s our battle. Along with the choice comes the power.
It’s very hard, sometimes, but we have to internalize that the ability to change is a reality: and this is the moment of truth.
We might slip and stumble, but our job is to engage in battle and try. ~ R’ Elya Brudny
