Every day we make decisions. Some are huge and others are tiny in comparison. Still, others are made without us ever really engaging our brains. We’ve made the same choice so many times we don’t even register it. More likely than not, we do what we do because our mama or daddy did it that way or we saw it done that way or perhaps we learned it along the way. Then one day, an opinion opposes our own and suggests a new alternate path. The suggestion might’ve come from a person or something you’ve heard or read but all of a sudden, you find yourself faced with this eternal question.
