In life, there are so many directions that we’ll have to choose from, and if given the chance, which will you take?
I can still remember the poem I’ve learned during my high school days entitled, “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. Imagine, the reader is only to choose from two roads, and yet, it proves to be very difficult. What more if you are left with so many choices but you don’t know what will be best for you?
All I can say is, that’s the essence of life.
If everything would be so easy that you won’t have any options, then life would be so boring.
If life would not challenge us to make a choice, then our existence will not be worth it.
If every day of our lives would be “smooth sailing” or “routinary,” without any thrills or excitement, then life would be so dull.
As they say, you wouldn’t know that something is sweet, if there is no such word as “bitter.”
There will be no joy if there’s no pain.
There are always two sides of the same coin.
Oh, life! Makes me want this song by Des’ree (whose surname is actually “Weeks,” very interesting!):
So after all’s said and done
I know I’m not the only one.
Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to.
Sometimes living out your dreams,
Ain’t as easy as it seems.
You wanna fly around the world,
In a beautiful balloon.
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life doo,
doot doot dooo. Life, oh life,
oh life doo, doot dooo. Life, oh life, oh life,
oh life doo, doot doot dooo. Life…
