Life and Decisions

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Life's challenges

  • Why should you sit, and wait for something good to happen?

  • Often you wait for some good news to come along does that actually make you feel good?

  • Why wait can you not go without what will or what if or when will you get that message?

The decisions made can affect you and others.

Life is such that not much can be announced unless you wait for whatever you need.

  • Are you still waiting for that once in a lifetime opportunity?

If you wait for the moment to come to you that won't be.

Taking risks does account for the courageous individuals.

When you are not courageous you decide to wait and hope for what won't be.

To accomplish anything in life you got to take a chance to see where it takes you.

Be a spirited being and be that go-getter.

  • Do good things come to those who wait?

I tried not to wait but have to go right back to the same procedure of wait. Documents and documents are a waiting procedure, and that could take a while more of waiting game.

It may never come my way, or it may come my way when I least expect it too. If I had to wait on something to uplift my spirits, it certainly won't bring me true happiness.

My decision is to continue enjoying each day and see what happens as I pass my days.

I am positive and have hope for my new life in Croatia.

Everybody wants a new and different life, but you don't realize the consequences you have to face up to before getting what you really want from that life.

  • Nothing in life comes easy.

You got to get up and grab what you want from life. In my case, I have tried to push my needs further and still have to wait on one lead to another.

  • Do you often ask yourself when are good things going to come your way?

I have progressed in my way and have chosen to pursue my goals.

I am not able to get what I have been waiting for a long time.

I haven't failed just tired of waiting.

  • When, when and when will it be?

Waiting causes frustration and many disadvantages.

Most individuals expect bad to come out of good situations, or the other way around. When you expect good then good will come to you.

You will get something good if you are patient. Sometimes, I feel I have been very patient and have yet not received my fair share of landings.

  • Plan in advance to accomplish your goals.

If only I had known that before I came to live in Croatia. At that time everything seemed too perfect to be touched or played with.

I always knew to plan in advance but did not know where my move will take me to.

  • Are you still waiting for the impossible to happen?

I have worked my hardest to achieve my goals and will work even harder to cut down on that long wait.

My point of life right now is turning and my past few years have been a battle that had brought me to another stage.

  • Am I wrong or right about life's decisions?

I believed that in the last few years and still do in myself.

No one can change me and most of all I am happy with myself.

I am courageous but the waiting game goes on.

I am not negative just so frustrated with what got me in the first place to wait.

My strengths kept me alive with hope and many decisions.

A new language taught me to communicate well and to be with a different social group.

I often used to look back on previous conversations of where did I go wrong that now does not mean much to me.

Whatever happened in my past I can't go back and change.

What I have created I have to go along within my own way.

I know what led me here and can’t go back the thought of turning back that clock is not possible.

It has been painful but that has passed in time it showed me my decisions made were not with regret.

Under the circumstances I did right to get away and live another life with my family.

Love brought me far and wide.

I knew then as I do know now that I have the power to change my life and have done so in a spec ail way.

  • Change is inevitable!

My steps have showed me far too much than I had expected, or dreamed of in this life.

I did not know and now have learned about a life I did not experience, nor have I lived in my past.

A challenge which brought me to another level of life.

Life is meant to be enjoyable, sorrowful, happy and complicated.

If you don't have a combination of experiences in life for you it can be boring unless you choose to live that way.

I learned to listen to my heart and did it.

I sometimes feel like nothing would happen.

Now I know none of my steps taken have to be perfect.

  • Do you seek permission from others?

I don't seek permission from others to know if I am on the right path. It is up to me decide where my thoughts are going to lead me.

If I depended on the opinions of others even tried to seek the opinions of others, I would have not come this far with my great challenges.

I would instead feel empty and helpless.

I did not want to give my strengths to others relying on someone else is not my way. I prefer to rely on my thoughts.

I believe in standing on my own two feet no matter where I am and in any situation that made me brave and more courageous.

I don't want my life to be confusing and dis-empowering.

I don't worry much I try to stay free of a stressful life.

  • Believe me my way works best for me.

I have no time to sweat the small stuff.

I trust me to live an enjoyable life.

I don't like my thoughts to be clouded by another person's thoughts.

I did what I felt was right for me in the past and will continue to this way.

I don't see my life in any other way but to fulfill my days with great happy moments.

When I had I took it all for granted now my new find has taught me to be with caution and to appreciate what I have in my life.

I avoid living my life in the future I don't know so it won't be until I reach there and when I don't know I prefer not to make that part of my life.

I just like to be in the moment the special times that I have for today.

I am doing my best with what is right in front of me.

Everything in life is not a joke also everything in life should not be taken seriously.

Observe and take in.

I don't always try to make perfection I let it be.

Don't over think do what you think is right.

You don't need to have perfection to be happy with careful practice happiness comes from within.

I learned of true happiness from my childhood.

Life is what you Make of it.

      Devika, I like your questions. Do good things come to those who wait? Perhaps they do, but we don't recognize the good. You raise issues that we have to think about.

      Apart from the fact you are a good photographer, I think you will make a good teacher. Your insight on life is stunningly beautiful. One must not wait for God to throw down manna from heaven to survive these days. Make a way for yourself is the new order now and those who know that need are making progress today.

      Since change is inevitable, planning is the only option for success.

      Another revealing hub, DDE.

      This is a true reflection of the observer. It's been my experiences that whatever choices I made or which direction I took over the years, it made me what I am today and for that I'm grateful. Great post. Voted up!

      Life is such a funny thing, we wait for so many nice things to happen but we forget we have to make them happen, great hub!

      Thanks for sharing another insightful hub about life experiences. Life is full of challenges, experiences and waiting periods, but as you said, ‘we must continue enjoying each day and see what happens.’ We must not allow the times of waiting for something to stop us from enjoying and embracing the good things and moments in our lives. Good advice and overall great questions to ask oneself.

      " What I have created I have to go along with in my own way"-your words sum up your positive attitude in life,which will keep you along the right path to self 'peace of mind'. If you listen to opinions of others no matter how well intentioned you will be pulled from one path to another pathway time after time. Great read. Voted up,useful and very interesting.

      The waiting game requires much patience and they say patience is a virtue. I must admit I don't exhibit that virtue well. I'm not a good "wait-er." lol

      Very thought provoking. I think you uncovered one of the great wonders of life in your statement, "Life is meant to be enjoyable, sorrowful, happy and complicated." This is so true. When our expectations of life don't allow us to accept the sorrow with the joy, we can become negative and resentful. Your positive outlook is an inspiration. Thank you for sharing!
