Life is a matter of choice. (Our decisions)

Once there were two eggs discussing what they wanted to be when they hatched. The first egg said, " I want to be an oyster when I hatch. An oyster just lay in the water and never has to make any decisions. The currents of the ocean move it about, so it doesn't have to plan. The ocean water passing by brings its food. Whatever the ocean provides is what the oyster receives, no more, no less." The fisrt egg continued, "That's the life for me. It may be limited, but there are no decisions and no responsibilities. There's a source existence controlled only by the ocean. The second egg said, "That's not the life for me. I wish to be an eagle. An eagle is free to go where it wants and to do as it pleases. Of course it is responsible for hunting its own food and making survival decisions, but it is also free to fly as high as the mountains." "The eagle", continued the second egg " is control, instead of being controlled by others. I want no limits placed on me, nor do I want to be a slave of the ocean. Consequently, I am willing to expand the effort required to live the life of an eagle. I will create my own destiny." What role would you like to portray in life? To be an Oyster or be an Eagle? The CHOICE is yours! -law of leverage-
