I grew up listening to the phrase,
Choice makes confusion.
How true is that..
Everyday we make choices,
lots and lots of it..
Choices does come in all sizes..
From waking up to alarm
Or hit snooze..
Till give in to sleep
Or one more page of reading..
From working for a living
Or towards your destiny..
From opting for a profession
Or for a passion that drives you..
From having a healthy life
Or giving in to peer pressure..
From living for yourself
Or for other’s expectation of your life..
From being lazy and procrastinating
Or completing it right through..
From prioritising your needs
Or giving up to silly wants..
From giving in to temptations
Or standing up to convictions..
From choosing to have a choice
Or choosing to not have any..
From fearing what it might be
Or to facing what it could be..
From pondering on what could have been
Or to steering to what should you be..
Of all the choices
Big and small,
Makes you what you are!
Just so that, tomorrow
Blooms with no regrets
Nor inconvenience to any!
Make others smile
And choose to always
LIVE your life!
For choices are what
Makes you, YOU!
This is in reply to Dr. H Bhatnagar’s two-phrase story challenge!
Challenge? Who has the patience to follow the rules / link backs?
If that’s what you were thinking, you are in the right place. Coz the rules are almost nil!
(Hmm.. Are there any, Dr. HB? Since I don’t follow most rules, I skipped this too.. :P)
But if you are willing to stick to rules, refer here!
Willing to take part in this challenge?
Feel free to reply to the first phrase either in my comment section or the original posts’ comment section.
(See how simple this is!)
Feel free to unleash your creativity with a new second phrase
(or bit more, coz he has a big heart to accommodate more than a second phrase.. 😉 )
There’s little more!
He compiles all the entries and posts!
Trust me, it is awesome to see the multitude of replies for a single phrase.
Check out the last week’s compilation here!
So what’s your reply to “It wasn’t my choice…”
Looking forward for your take on this.. 🙂
And here’s my take!
It wasn’t my choice,
But my destiny
to travel the less trodden path
and pave way for others
to follow and reach new destinations!
If you look back and have nothing to regret, there is something lacking in your life..
Life becomes an Adventure, when you live with your heart and when you have the courage to take chances..
Not all choices lead to the right decisions..
Yet, the regret for not pursuing a choice is always far more depressing than the regret of pursuing and failing in a choice..
Never ever let that spark within you die, for the failure in taking up one chance..
Life keeps growing and the perspective keeps on changing..
What was right, ten years back, might not hold the same value or reasons now..
If you are always bothered about living the life in the right way, for perpetuity, it might not always be possible..
So, the better way to live is to live in the right way, under the given circumstances, on the given day..
As long as your desire doesn’t cause harm to any person / creature / thing never ever fear to pursue that choice..
You might regret the way it ends up..
But for sure, the regret of not trying will kill you alive..
So, go and take chances..
The effort to pursue what you want with your heart is the true fuel of your soul..
