Life is a journey. I’d like to think of it not just as a
journey, but a journey which demands us to make a choice at every step that we
take. Or wait, every step we take is a choice. From the time I was born, there
have always been choices to make- choice of clothes to wear, of food to eat, of
schools and colleges to work in, of places to visit. Choices are a plenty- some easy, some
difficult. At times, I am so used to having you around, that I fail to
appreciate what I have.
But dear choice, at times I’m so confused by you and I
wonder why you even exist. You have been so hard at times. Decisions are
difficult to make. How do you think I feel when I have to choose between the
people I love and my dreams? Between what I love to do and what I am supposed
to do? Why do you always have to come with conditions applied? Why are you so
tricky at times that when I feel I’m doing things right I just end up making
the biggest mistake?
“You are free to make whatever choice
you want, but you are not from the consequences of the choice”
How true those words ring! Good or bad, happy or sad I must
accept the consequences of my decisions. I am sure that life would be pretty
boring if you weren’t there. Each day would be the same, nothing different to
do, nothing different to learn. I am glad that I have the opportunity of
choosing what I want to, no matter how difficult the decision is. Aren’t there
many in this world who have are forced into living the type of life they don’t
want to just because of lack of you? A few people because they are scared to
take that first step and some just because they are helpless?
Thank you for being there. It is I who need to take
responsibility of the things that I choose to do, of the decisions I make and
be prepared to face the consequences. And sometimes, no matter how difficult
and confusing you are the outcome of the decisions might bring me more
happiness than I ever know. Isn’t it?
I'm taking up the #AtoZChallenge and my theme is "A letter for a letter". So make sure you read
all the letters from A to Z.
