CROSSROADS

At some point in your life, you reach a crossroad. A turning point that will dictate how the rest of your life will go. You can stand there for all eternity and weigh all the options but sometimes the only way to find out if you made the right choice is to move forward. The consequence will tell you whether or not you chose the right path. Sometimes, we regret choosing the path we took and find ourselves wondering if it is too late to turn back and go the other way. Sometimes we already know it is too late and so we go forward and learn to live with the choices we made. For some of us, the regret is too big that we end up giving up and deciding that this is it, we can’t go any further.

Unknown to us is that, sometimes the two paths converge at a certain point and it didn’t really matter if you took the one on the right or the one on the left because it all leads to the same destination. The only difference was the scenery.

We learn what we can from the choices we made. We try to pick the best path for us to follow taking into consideration every single shred of information we can and weigh all possible options. Sometimes, we even try to predict the future, though we know how futile that is.

If, by any chance, you are in that crossroad right now, take it easy. If you have already chosen and at some point along the way you realize that the trail you picked is harder that you expected, don’t give up. Hang in there. Just take one step at a time. Things do get better.

Flight Delays and Life Realizations

I am writing this as I sit at the almost crowded airport waiting lounge. I am waiting for a flight that should have flown almost half an hour ago and is not expected to fly until three hours from now. This is supposedly the first day of an epic adventure but its started with an epic fail.

As I sit here and look at the people around me, I can’t help but think how this is so much like life in general. No matter how much you plan and how much you prepare, there will be glitches and bumps along the way. You can sit back and accept it or you can choose to throw a tantrum and scream your heart out.

At least I got this view.

But let’s face it. You can scream all you want but if that plane is not ready to take off, what can you do? Sometimes you just have to accept that some things are really beyond your control. Sometimes you have to accept that some things are not meant to take off yet. It’s just not the right time yet.

That plane will fly when it’s ready. Just sit back and make the best out of it. Or get your money back.
