OUR CHOICES IN LIFE

OUR CHOICES IN OUR LIVES

In our life we’ve several choices

Some are easier to be chosen

While others are steeped in quagmire of difficulty

The choice remains with us solely

The choice depends on the our wisdom entirely

We’ve garnered for ourselves

Over a period of time indeed

Sometimes we’ve the choice of silence

Other times we’ve to walk the talk

Sometimes there is no choice of pick and choose,

Selection of our choice

Also depends on situation

In which we’re placed willy-nilly

In emergency like situations

We’ve limited options

Or when alternatives have dried out immeasurably

We are constrained to follow the available ones

With compelling reasons open

And with us available .

Thence sometimes we get distraction

Due to our wavering mind

Which hovers from one thought to other one

Here choices become blurred and confusing

Here choice proper and most appropriate

Becomes all the more difficult.

Then there are workaholics

Their very little choice is not anything but work

They’re sticklers for rules

To be perfectionist at all costs

In order to earning for themselves

In the long run stresses and strains.

Then we’ve situations

Where we’ve no choices at all left

Everything we take gets boomeranged

With the situation like this

There is no alternative

But to bank on our Creator

And we sincerely pray to Him

For granting us sagacity

With immense inner strength

To face the challenges

In which we’re placed

This inner strength

Strengthens our resolve

And give us multiple choices

Amongst these we can choose the best ones

For making the life peaceful

With humbleness in abundance blissfully

With broadening of choices ultimately

Making us the master of our destiny.

 OUR CHOICES IN OUR LIVES

There are so many choices in our lives which we can individually choose. In life we have various alternatives or options but what we choose for ourselves counts, taking into consideration the time and space we are placed. The following are the parameters which are important for us in order to choose the right course of action depending on the situation in which we are placed and the inner resolve we have garnered for ourselves:-

WHEN WE HAVE MULTIPLE CHOICES

 When we have different choices from which we have to choose one, the choice depends on us individually. For example, the students can choose their choice of course or skill they can choose from amongst the multiple ones depending upon our own aspirations and ambition  we’ve nurtured over a period of time, availability of finance and other relevant factors. But ultimately, the choice solely is of the individual student concerned.

SINCERITY IN FRUTIFICATION OF THE CHOICE WE ADOPT FOR OURSELVES

It should always be kept in mind that merely making choice is not a solution, we have to work for realizing or fructification of the choice chosen. Here sincerity for successful completion of our choice too counts a lot.

CHOICE OF OUR LIFE PARTNER

We have the choice of choosing our spouse with whom we want to spend our life, with whom we want to share the happiness and sadness besides fulfilling all the demands that family commitment demands from us. A good choice in this context goes a long way in living a purposeful life.

CHOICE OF FRIENDSHIP

We all are aware that we cannot make friendship with everybody; those who come across us in life. We have to be doubly sure that the one we choose as a friend, stands with us in thick and thin and we also do the same for our friend.

WHEN WE’VE LIMITED CHOICES

There are occasions, when our choices are limited. We have to live with those limited choices with us. In this sort of contingency, we have to be careful in choosing from the limited choices. This choice should be exploited to the hilt for getting optimum benefit. For example, if we’ve only one business opening for us, we’ve to lap it up.

WHEN THERE NO CHOICES AT ALL THEN?

There are times and occasions when we do not have any choice left; in that case there are two scenarios. Firstly, we may lose ourselves in the bargain or get frustrated and earn for ourselves stress related diseases. Secondly, the person concerned could turn to God and pray for inner strength and resilience. True prayers are always answered by our Creator.

WHEN OUR CHOICE IS SUSPECT

At times, our choice is suspect then what? Then our inner potential  bestowed by our God comes to our rescue and we are delivered of the piquant situation in which we are places.

SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF THE MAXIM: HASTE MAKES WASTE

At times, we are under the dilemma of choosing from the multiple choices, here we’ve to be careful in choosing the right choice amongst all the choices. But here we’ve to introspect; analyze all angles and then reach to a conclusive decision. Here the maxim, haste makes waste’ should never be lost sight of even for a moment.  While choosing our profession, our life partner or coming under the spell of lust for ‘another’ woman etc are some of the choices. Here we’ve to be very careful, especially for ‘another’ woman or man wherein we shall be transgressing our moral lakshamrekha (limits). Here if we sway, we shall be losing ourselves in the bargain. This choice too is ours own, nobody other than us can choose this.

    In our lives, we have some choices or alternatives open for us from which we have the choice to choose from. We have to be very careful whenever we have to choose from the multiple or limited choices available with us.

    Kindly appraise the blog and comment. I love your comments and get inspiration from your comments.

    Hat’s Off…!!!!

  3. I recently lost a friend, who I believed was a great friend but on reflection perhaps it wasn’t to be. Your post made me stop and think about this and now I believe that perhaps it was for the better.

    Good afternoon and thanks for this great article caro Il Chiaro. As you say, we should have multiple choices to make the right decision and have a peaceful life. May I respectfully interject that sadly it is not that easy for young people nowadays as they are being bombarded by the advertisement and enticements of a consumerist society, even when it means choosing a friend or partner. In his 1970 book named “Future shock” Alvin Tofler already warned about the social risks of “overchoice.” In almost all major decision-making situations, the presence of equally good choices can lead to severe mental stress and paralysis to most humans. As we rationally try to determine the pros and cons of each choice, we are burdened mentally and emotionally. Even though initially people feel happy that the number of choices is rising, eventually they tire off and feel depressed. Too much variety can increase the complexity of the items or situations. Thisis a common occurence in Millenials that are trying to find a sexual and romantic partner in applications like Tinder. The surge of so many attractive boys (remember that most of them are lying with photoshop techniques) can paralyze a girl. It happened to one of my patients, who looking for a simple date got more than 1500 hits in her inbox. Way too much! More than ever, young people must learn to be prudent and patient, because all the good stuff (and people) takes time to come.
    A big hug. Arrivederci!

      GOOD MORNING DR. SAHIB.

      I am really thankful to you for your invaluable commentary. This commentary of yours is indicative of the fact that we all have some choices and it is our own initiative and intelligence to choose those available choices.

      It is especially so for our young men and women who are swayed by the ads and other media blitz which has influenced the choices which we are having. They should also take into account that once this choice is taken, then, retraction is not easy so all the pros and cons have to be accounted before taking any choice suitable for us.

      I am really thankful for your comprehensive and most valuable commentary.

      I have also penned down another article on OUR DESIRES – DETACHED ATTACHMENT. Kindly appraise the blog and comment SINCE your commentary is always an inspiration to me for my further write-ups.

      WITH WARM HUGS AND REGARDS

        Speaking of inspirational moments, I just copied my commentary to my ongoing manuscript and edited it. You illuminated writings and their aftermath are shining a trusted light in our path full of shadows. Mille grazie, caro Il Chiaro!

      • Harbans says:

        GOOD MORNING DR. SAHIB.

        I am of the view that as humans, we are incomplete without the succor of our well-wishers and friends. I do not mince any word when I say that I learn a lot from friends like you.

        WITH WARM HUGS AND REGARDS
