Making decisions has never been something I enjoy and I am starting to feel like the outcome of one’s life is all about making the right choices. How do you know what is right and wrong? I seriously don’t have any idea about how to answer that question but what I do know is that life can’t be planned.
Every time I have felt the urge to make a decision something else has come in my way and I have felt it would be better to take the other road than the one I had decided to take. I don’t know if that is a way to make a decision or going with the flow of life. I have let life be decided for me and sometimes I find myself not happy with where I am but I feel a calm voice telling me that maybe this way was better.
I still don’t know if I am on the right track, sometimes I see signs telling me to keep going and sometimes there are only red lights and stop signs saying I need to wait. So I wait. It is not always fun.
I have taken detours and it took me longer to get through certain experiences than others. Eventually, I would move on, going slowly and uncertain but nevertheless moving forward. It is good to take a little break every now and then but if you keep on hitting the breaks every two seconds you won’t make it as far you want to go in the time you wish.
Aging is a humbling experience and it has been a journey to get to where I am today. I didn’t have a clear image of where I would be by now. But sometimes, I can’t help but wonder where I would have been if I had chosen another road through life. And then, I remember that had I not stopped along the way I wouldn’t have gained all the knowledge and insight about myself. I am still learning but what I wish I could have told my younger self is;
The road through life is only an experience, nothing is permanent so be kinder to yourself and enjoy the little moments of love.
What do you wish you could have told your younger self? I would love to hear what your story is and how you navigate through life. Please leave a comment below and let me know how you make decisions in life.
