Identity decisions

“No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently” – Agnes de Mille

Everyday, each and every one of us makes decisions. Some are good, some are bad, but all are decisions that were made. We choose to do good or to do bad. We choose to live for the benefit of others, or to live for the benefit of ourselves. Ultimately, there comes a time of realisation where the possessor of the will decides to exercise his will irrevocably in one direction or another. Perhaps for some weak and ineffectual people, this moment never dawns and they continue to live a life of bland ambiguity, not truly knowing their left hand from their right.

“Could’st thou in vision see

Thyself the man God meant

Thou never more could’st be

The man thou art, content”


I want to live a purpose-filled life.

I want to be a man of God

I want to constantly improve myself

The big decisions in life are not made in the limelight. They aren’t made in the presence of the powerful or the company of the influential. They are made sitting on your bed, looking at your hands and asking yourself the tough questions in life. What will I do? What will I be? What will I believe? What will I leave behind? Who am I?
