Wellbeing Chooses Itself
Whether you are choosing the lesser of the two evils or the greater of the two goods, whether you are choosing to reduce pain or choosing to amplify pleasure, or just choosing not to choose in order to maintain the comfort of the status quo, a choice is always made in the direction of one’s wellbeing.
Indeed, a choice is an act of selection between two or more options. But what guides this selection? What informs any given preference? Wellbeing, of course. So, congratulations to you on any conscious choice you make since any conscious choice is an affirmation of wellbeing!
Life is in the business of wellbeing. Celebrate life with conscious choice!
