Last night I was given the opportunity to experience one of the most beautiful things a human can be exposed to– a crossroad. The uncertainty in one’s thought process as they are faced with a predicament cannot be described as anything less than exquisite.
I sometimes wonder why we do not allow ourselves to face these crossroads more often in life. We quickly shut our minds off to many ideas and dreams we could have achieved simply so that we will not have to undergo uncertainty and risk. Protective mechanism I guess you could call it.
After last night, seeing someone stuck between two conflicting decisions and choosing to take her “own” road, revealed something to me. Life is not as black and white as we make it seem. Journeys are individual. At the end of the day, we must make sure to take care of ourselves, take risks, survive, and come out on the other end— Happy.
