Do you always have a choice?

Sometimes, I believe the hype that we always have a choice.  Whether it's with being happy, being thankful, giving yourself through sex, what foods you put in your body.  But is that always the case?  Do we always have a choice?  It seems that we need to look at the larger picture in these cases.  Maybe it's because we are sometimes only looking at individual choices rather than many choices that may lead up to that one that makes a big difference.  Could that be where we are missing it?  Is the secret to being happy really just about making a single choice to be happy every day?  Maybe that is in the case in some situations. But maybe it has to do with more situations that have to do with that.  I should make the choice to eat well, sleep enough, read regularly, stay connected with my God, and ALSO make the choice to be happy.  Maybe this is how we should always look at these choices.  There are also other situations where we could make several choices that lead us into another situation where we find it hard to make one choice over another, which would make it very difficult to really have a specific choice.  Is always something to consider.
