Are you making the right choices knowing that they have a long-lasting impact on your life? Sometimes when we are making choices for today, we don’t necessarily think of the impact they will have on us for the rest of our lives. I learned this lesson the hard way just this week during a visit to the dentist when I realized that my not doing anything when I should have, led to more teeth cavities.
