Life is about making choices, we all make them everyday, from what we eat to how we react to others. Some choices are easy, some challenging and some that are heartbreaking and haunt us.
Write about the most challenging choice you have ever had to make. Was it the right choice or the easy one? How has this choice shaped, defined or changed your life, if at all? If you could go back and chose another option,would you?
Reflect and write…:)
