Today I would like to talk about choices. As everything we are doing is a result of decission we have made at some point, being able to make a good choice is a very important skill. Things we are doing at the moment might have huge impact on our future life, either positive or negative. However, it is very often difficult to detrmine which of the possible options is the best and whether it is going to bring anything good into our lives.
There are also things, we just can’t predict. I’ve heard very often, when after some let’s say car accident where someone died, person who survived is blaming him or herself for this death. Even if this was something, what wasn’t anyone’s fault. But they have these thoughts in their heads like: “If only I have choosen the other way” or “If only I would agreed to change place with her” and so on.
There is always this if. But as in case of accidents we was not able to prevent it (of course if we weren’t this drunk driver speeding 150 miles per hour), certain actions will most likely bring some kind of results, which at the time of making decissions, we might not be aware of.
The good example are people who decide to start their business and spend all their free time working on it. They resign from contact with their family and friends, just to achieve this one goal. However, when their business turn out to be a great success (or failure), they is no one around them to share the joy or there is no one to give them a shoulder to cry on. Everything started, when they decided that working is the most important thing which they want to spend their time on, while they weren’t able to predict that they will be left alone with whatever outcome they will get.
I would like to share with you some tips on making good decissions in life, but I don’t know any of them. The only thing I can think of is to do research and analyse, but again, everyone’s life is different. You have to take the risk (as long as it will be wise risk) and go for your goals. However, it is also important to be ready to pay for consequences of your choices. I think, this is what makes you an adult. Being able to say: “Hey, sorry it was my mistake, what can I do to fix it?”. This make you a responsible person, even if your soul seems to stop at the age of three 😉
I will leave you with this thought today. I wish you a very productive day with only good choices and I’ll see you in my next post.
