Choice


Have you ever been in this situation? 

You know what you ought to do. You know what your heart tells you to do. You know that it is the right thing to do now. You know that there will be associated risk(s) with any decision/course of action. You know that the risk taken now is well worth it. You know that, if not now, then it is never. You know that there are always bound to be other avenues later, sooner or later, if the decision that you take now does not work out well in the long run. 

And yet, your mind does not heed to it. You don't make that decision. 

You dilli dally. You procrastinate. You look for opinions and advice from others. You get influenced by others. You look for excuses for avoiding the change. You get cold feet thinking about the risk and the change. And then, you still have the audacity to envy others, the case of the grass always being greener on the other side of the fence.

You know that change is the only constant thing in the world!.Yet it is so difficult to adjust to change, let alone welcome it with open arms.

in such stuff i guess its best to just let go and make the decision when only option is left..you can say what r thalai said-i was cornered.i had no choice..free

definitely think over it..lack of thinking is worse than thinking...
take a step back..look at yrself, past and present...become someone other than yrself..and look at yrself and the choice....
sometimes it helps to detatch from the choice to make the right decision...
been there...and done that...doing it...!!
