February 8: So many choices… be careful what you choose

Budapest, compared to Ukraine, is the land of choices when it comes to restaurants.  In Donetsk, where I live, there is one decent choice for fast food: McDonalds.  Budapest has several US chains as well as some good local restaurants.

Today, in a moment of weakness, I decided to go to Subway.  I don’t do Subway as I feel that I can do a pretty good sandwich at home, minus the good bread at Subway.  I had a roasted Chicken sandwich that was ok, but not great.  This is exactly why I don’t do Subway.

One side “benefit” is to hear lots of folks speaking English.  There were 3 girls from Britain talking and laughing.  Then a boy and girl from the US came in and had a sandwich and left quickly.  They didn’t talk much to each other.

What I “learned” from this experience is that I should listen to myself.  I really didn’t want to go there, but decided to do so out of convenience.

Life is full of choices.  This choice wasn’t a life or death situation.  Yet, many of our choices impact our lives to varying degrees. The most important choice I ever made was in 1974 to follow Jesus.  That is one decision I have never regretted.
