The Choices of Today

People tend to forget that the choices we make today pave the path for our tomorrow. Peer pressure is all around us, we live in a world of peer pressure. The world tells us we have to be a certain way, our parents and teachers tell us, even our friends tell us. So we always have to choose wisely because our choices today will affect us tomorrow. Sometimes the right choice isn’t always popular, and it isn’t always easy. We have to stick to our gut, listen to our mind and follow our heart. We are all perfect the way we are, we do not need any drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or sex to make us “better” or “cool.”
