I got a note this morning from someone which said, "give thanks for who you are and who you are becoming." I liked it because it reveals some sense of the mystery of freedom, habit, virtue, and vice.

Every choice we make is a choice not only to do something, but to become somebody. Acting gently and peacefully makes us more peaceful and gentle. Deciding to be angry or greedy makes us a more angry and greedy person when we come to the next choice.

JP2 in his book 'the acting person' talked about this. who you are is always changing by every choice you make.
