The Forgotten Trail
Choices pen our own life. What stories would you want to include?
It's either you make your own choice or listen to other people's voice.
Sometimes in our life, we come to a crossroad where we have to choose one path versus the other. And most of the time, we leap into quick decisions and later regret it. How do we know which road will lead into a successful journey? How do we know what is the right path for us?
Making decisions involve a thorough analysis, especially when this decision can affect not only our lives but as well as the lives of people we love. We have to carefully choose what we think and feel right. Mind and heart will go hand in hand in order for us to take the path we want.
But sometimes along the way, we regret the decisions we made and then we look to the past and think what will happen if we chose the other way around?
I made many mistakes in the past. Then I come to the point where I was trapped in a maze I made myself. I would sit and reminisce of the “what if’s” on my life. What if I’ve taken that other road? Where will it lead me? Will my life be not miserable like this?
Nobody knows the future, but you know what kind of future you want to build for yourself. And for that, making right decisions matter. Weighing the pros and cons will help you a lot to determine which way to go and which road to travel. We may encounter a lot of hindrances along the way but as long as you believe in yourself, as long as you trust your decisions in life, it can lead to a successful trail.
When we find ourselves whining for the “what if’s” and yearning for the road not taken, always remember that at one time in your life, that choice is all you ever wanted for yourself. So never regret all the choices you have made, may it be good or bad, can make you smile or sad, this is not yet your final destination.
So we don’t have to stop or look back or try to find that road again. Because once you’ve chosen one road, the other road closes... forever.
But we still have the chance to find that crossroad again in the next chapter of our life. Mistakes are made, and yes, nobody is perfect. And that mistake will mold our lives and shape the future we decide for ourselves. One bad choice is not the end of the world. Maybe, it’s the way to your own path of happiness. We will never know if we will stop and keep looking for that closed road which you have not taken at the first place.
So be happy whatever choice you will make and never regret it. Choose wisely, live happily and embrace the future with a strong heart. Go ahead and sail the seas, spread your wings and believe in yourself. Go out, make your choice and make your dreams come true!
And most of all, always believe that God is always there to guide you whichever way you will choose.
