The importance of a decision

They help me to guide my life, leave and take, build or destroy, spread affection or provoke resentment.
I take a pebble with my hand, and then I put out in front of an intense stream. I wonder if I should throw or keep it. Because If I throw it, it will be very difficult to get it back, but if I keep it, I will wonder what I would do with it in the future.
Life is much more important than one simple pebble. You can throw it into a stream full of vices and selfishness or you can save it and keep it for using it later.
Every option I make throws a few of me to the story. I can’t change the past, and what I have decided is my present and my future, also what I am and have.
The pebble is still in my hand. I continue and then I see a necessity, so I can leave it wherever to be available and help. Later, I will take it and continue; what I do right now or not it’s important.
In the path of the human life, I have to realize about the importance of every decision. If I my decision comes from the selfishness, greed and pleasure disorder, it will harm you terribly. However, what it’s chosen from the love embellishes the entire world and our own soul.
Time continues, and I can’t postpone my decisions. They help me to guide my life, leave and take, build or destroy, spread affection or provoke resentment.
Then, I see again the pebble in my hand, it’s completely available, what should I do? The stream moves fast, relentless, like the life. So, I have to make a decision.
Finally, after my gesture, something new will begin in the world. I ask God to enlighten me in order to decide carefully, guided by the most beautiful feeling humans have: loving and receiving love from others…
