If you do something and then blame circumstances, upbringing, genes (!?), or really anything else other than yourself, are you really free? We can't change what happens to us (you seeing a box of cookies in the kitchen), but we can for sure decide what to think and do about it (eat the cookies, or not).
This is why I write these 'daily thoughts' posts.
