series of choices

I once heard someone say that our lives are made up of a series of choices.

When I was 5, I chose pixi sticks over broccoli, warheads over snickers. and candy canes over candy corns. 
When I was 12, I chose doritos over lays, boys over lunch, and yahoos over soda.
When I was 19, I chose vodka over rum, rap over pop, and cup noodles over… nothing at all.
When I was 25, I chose coke over pepsi, dreams over sell outs, and netflix over GNO.

I don't know what all of this says about me. But writing it down, crafting these thoughts into words, then sentences, and now coherent links of lines, well, it gets me thinking. When exactly did I begin to change? Would I have define myself on my own or do I define myself only through categorical opportunities (the opportunity being when these decisions arise)? I love my 25-year-old self. I love myself harder every single year. And every single year, I know more and more of what I like and what I don't like. I ACTUALLY know what I where I want to eat (most meals) and what I want to to wear (most mornings). There's also a saying that goes something along the lines of "You can't expect change by doing the same thing over and over again." I mean, it all makes sense, right? Lets say you hate who you are today, right now. Or the situation you're in. What if, what if you can change it by just making different decisions. If we are our decisions, than can it be just as easy as that? Tomorrow can be so different.
