Choice is having the opportunity to select or choose an alternative. The interesting point about "choice" is that the action is a conscious decision. And, if you don't take any action, you have chosen. You have simply made the "choice" not to act.
Throughout a lifetime, we make countless choices. Choices can be easy like deciding where to go on vacation next year. Some choices are complex with ramifications that impact the outcome of our life. A marriage, a job change, a move, are all examples of major choices in a life.
