I believe what really defines us all is what we believe in.
Our beliefs are what gives way to what we do and what makes us what and who we really are.
Not only are we the product of our own experiences, but also the consequences of our choices along the way.

Even doing “nothing” is a choice.

I have often wondered if an act of kindness makes up for past wrongs, or could one blemish of cruelty make us appear evil.

Our actions as well as our reactions define us. Our conscience is there to discern what to do, how to think, and how to act.

Our religion, or absence of religion defines us; as does our ignorance, stupidity and prejudice.

What we do will add into making us who we are. What we don’t do, as well.

Our morality, or lack of, is a product of who we are.

There is much more, but our result as to who we may be, is dependent on all of the above.

So define yourself as you see fit.

Moments of truth are inevitable. With any given situation, you always have a choice as to how to act.

And, in many moments of truth, it is our actions that define us.

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I…….I took the one less traveled by;
And that has made all the difference.”
