Heather Gemmen -- Day Seven of Seven

"The choices we make change the story of our life." Reminds me of Freaky Friday when Jamie Lee Curtis calls out to Lindsey Lohan the very wise advice: "Make good choices!"

Embarassing for a high school student to have shouted out at her maybe, but still true! Isn't it strange how the simplest ideas are usually the most profound?


Love your neighbor as yourself.
If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
Laughter is good medicine.
No pain, no gain.
Home is where the heart is.

Maybe the reason we tend to use cliches is because they're true. (Don't tell any of my writing students I said that!) Repeating something often is a sign of its value. And making good choices is something worth reminding ourselves to do.

PS Even a child is known by his actions; get your kids started on making good choices right now. See these choose your own adventure books by Allison and Heather
