Good is momentary.
It’s often a simple decision.
It satisfies an immediate appetite.
Best is long-term.
It’s not always the easiest decision.
It satisfies a deeper hunger.
Some things aren’t necessarily, in and of themselves bad. But they aren’t the best either.
Sometimes we need to let go of what seems good in the moment, to make room for the best.
The best is yet to come.
This collection of thoughts came to mind during the last two weeks of SHINEGirl. In this time I've been teaching classes of high school girls about the power of choice, and the strength to make choices that line-up with what they want in life.
