The Yes or No and Black or White

The Yes or NO

In one of my “me times,” a time wherein I get to just ponder on different things and think of  the life that was and what is my present, it just crossed my mind that it is so fun to be a child.  No worries, free from any concerns. You have your parents beside you forming and guiding you in practically everything.  From the shoes and clothes you wear, to what they think is the best school for you. They have the last say.

But growing up, things changed.  As we grew older, our preferences  changed, and we are now responsible in the choices we make.  Our parents who were once making the decisions for us, are now simply part of our support system.  It is now us to give the last say. We are now the architects and engineers of our lives. We are now responsible for the choices we make, now that we are adults.

In life, we are given an infinite amount of opportunities to make decisions.  Some are simple and some are quite complex. But what is the essence of the word “decision?”

In our daily lives, we likely take decisions for granted.  We may not be aware of it, but the decisions we make become part of our life story.  The decisions of our past influence our present and the decisions we make in the present echo into our future.

For every decision we make, we usher in, a very important change to the world.  We are inherently, saying yes to one thing and saying no to something else.

Some people use their minds in making a decision, while others give more weight in what the heart say. Whatever it is, bottom line is, we are responsible for all the decisions we make. It may be right, it may be wrong. That is part of the process we call, learning.”
