Conscious Cat Sunday: making decisions

Contrary to the picture above, there really are no wrong decisions (although the kitten in the photo might disagree), there are only different choices.  Additionally, very few decisions are irreversible. We always have the power to make a different choice.

Brighten your life or someone else’s with some flowers today!
