The life we have is the path we choose

I found a couple of old diaries I had kept and realize my stint in the school of gullible idiocy began way back, stemmed mostly from the insecurities of a sheltered childhood.

There's nothing for it but to know and be glad that I grew up.

I am now getting away from the biggest evil of my life and soon that part will be over.

As I go through this stage, I learn that fear is never really gone, it visits now and again when you are most vulnerable. And what makes you vulnerable, one's children.

I am advised that the children are old enough, I should not worry.

So the question I pose, 'what is the choice to make', seems simple
- to be happy or to worry,
- to live in certainty or volatility


but is it?

  1. As I read this two thoughts come to me:

    1) Some things, although they are simple, are not easy. To choose happiness instead of worry is one of those things.

    2) I really do believe that to a great extent, as you state in your post title here, "the life we have is the path we choose". I remind myself of this daily.

  5. Great insight! I think we all are in the same boat, and we, human beings, have to face so many difficulties in our life.

    May your days be filled with joy around every corner.

    Take good care,
