On Choices

June 14, 2013

Choices are very difficult.

Do I get up at 5.30 am and lose half an hour of precious and needed sleep? Or do I get up at 5.30am and spend half an hour in a relaxing, calming way much needed to function properly through the day?

At lunch, do I eat lunch only? Or do I exercise? Or do I meet up with a friend whom I haven’t seen for a couple of months? Or do I do more work to catch up on my to-do list?

At night, do I rest for a few minutes doing nothing? Or do I do more work to prepare for the next day, to make the next morning easier?

For some, these choices are not so difficult..The problem with choosing arises when all the options are good..and not choosing that option deprives you of something you need..and you must choose. And for me all these choices are equally good.

I want to chalk this up to life after having a baby…but just thinking about it, life has always been this way. It has been this way since the number of activities / things I like to do, need to do surpassed the amount of responsibility – fee time available.

So what is one to do? Most times, I go with the flow…sometimes one choice seems overwhelmingly tempting…one choice seems more sensible. However the danger with this approach i have found, is sometimes the choice I make is the wrong one..and I chose so because of laziness…not because of the choice’s rightness. So i live and learn and hope that next time I can do better.
