Sometimes we pray for something we’re sure will change our lives for the better,
but when we get it, we realize we were mistaken. Other times we work hard to
eliminate something from our lives, only to find out later how important it was to our well-being.     

Write a short memoir that depicts how your life changed, for the good or the bad,
because of a decision you made.
