Decisions decisions

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters to what lies within us.*
Henry Stanley Haskins

By heart I mean the place where emotions meet reason, mobilise the will, and shape identity.**
Alex McManus

There are tens of thousands of decisions to be made every day. Some are very small, whilst others have a size about them that will take us towards or away from the person we ca be and the things we are capable of doing.

Perhaps the most critical are those we make at the very beginning of a day, the ones we have wrapped in habits that align us to our most important hopes and dreams.

These also form a space in which we are able to find recovery from our bad decisions.
