What would you do IF given a second chance?
Phew, LIFE !
Life is such a roller coaster ride that once the ride is over; we tend to analyze what went wrong or what could we have done in that situation so, that the result would be different.
This is an exciting phase of life that we ALL are living where opportunities seldom knock on our door TWICE. But, what IF we would get to live that situation again in this lifetime? What IF we get a second chance to do something different than what we did last time? Would we grasp it?
Sure, we all would love to grasp it and ride it once more with a different perception so that the output would be so much as to; what WE want or what we DESIRE.
But, the BIGGEST problem in our lives is the AWARENESS.
We are so busy in our routine and so engulfed in our past and our future that we do not realize when the opportunity knocks on our door. We have to be aware and conscious and be in the present moment when the opportunity comes so that we grab it and can make a difference in our lives.
A classic example that I have been experiencing in my daily life is the words I speak to the people around me. The style of my speech can sometimes hurt people. I am aware of its consequences and many a times I have assessed myself after seeing the reaction on my friend's faces. Then I realize the impact of my words spoken and feel bad.
Just as spilled milk can only be wiped but not collected back into the glass the same way, words spoken cannot be put back in one's mouth.
What has been uttered...is uttered and there is no going back. Alas!
So, when given a second chance to interact with that person...should I be aware of what I did earlier or should I react immediately? Should I act with my Gut Feeling or should I think twice of the consequences I had faced earlier which made me think twice of my actions and made me feel that what IF I had acted in a different situation.
Attached below is my hub on Gut Feeling...what is Gut feeling and why does man tend to react more with their Guts rather than their brains.
- Gut Feeling
Ever wonder how many times we have acted from our Gut rather than responded back with our brains? Ponder over it and read this hub getting into the details of it and seeing it's effect.
Conclusion & Ponder upon...
Ideally, Life would not be FUN if, we keep getting second chances in life.
But, there are some moments in life, which I feel come not only twice but thrice.
However, the key words to making them last longer and with sweet memories is to be in the moment and react from the mind rather than react suddenly and then thinking of it's consequences.
