One Of My Favorite Quotes

“The question which once haunted my being has been answered. The future is not fixed, and my choices are my own… and yet, how ironic! For I now find, I have no choice at all!” – Dinobot, “Beast Wars: Transformers”

This quote was one that – obviously – I heard when I was in my 20s. The future is not fixed. My choices are my own. But more and more, I’m finding that I really don’t have a choice in how I act.

When I was younger, I thought I was living freely. I thought I was doing what I wanted, where I wanted, when I wanted.

However, as I grew older and gained some experience, I quickly realized that I even though I thought I was doing what I wanted, I really wasn’t. I was doing whatever it took to “fit in.” Being alone sucked, and I tried to hang out with others whenever I could. My own life was meaningless, and I was doing whatever it took to avoid criticizing myself.

Even though it was from a cartoon, this quote held more and more meaning to me as I gained years.

True, the future is not fixed.

My choices are my own.

What does this quote mean to me now?

However, as time went on, I had no choice but to move out of my hometown of Albuquerque. I would never grow if I never moved.

I had no choice by to leave the retail sector and seek out an employer that paid more. Taking care of myself would be hard enough, much less taking care of a family! Things had to change.

Now, I have no choice but to leave behind the traditions and limiting beliefs that I learned when I was little. I want to do more than focus on myself and my own bills/obligations. The world needs help; things have to change. I want to support those who are around us.

Why am I striving to learn more than I’ve ever learned before? For what reason am I building sites like It’s because – even though my choices are my own – I have no choice.
