The Irony of Options....

U cant live with them or without them!

Well..how many times do we recollect ourselves saying.."What other option do I have"?...or " I wish I didnt have so many options...cant make up my mind!"...

Yeah...thats the irony of options...too less and it feels like they dont exist..too many and it makes u wonder why they exist!!...

Well..even more difficult is when you face both these situations together....although on the face of it, it feels like life has presented you with many options to choose from....yet in reality, these options may not really exist...coz there are too many "Buts" attached to each option in life....nothing comes without a cost....does it!?

The debate is always between "What I want to do and what would probably be right for me!"...

And yeah....."Choose what u think is the best" or " Where do you see your life going?" or "Whatever you choose will eventually be best for you".....kindly note...such comments DO NOT help and are not welcome!":-(

And yeah as most men would say now.."See, thats why we say, women can NEVER decide"...so yeah. its true for me..I DEFINE INDECISIVENESS!!!!....

Hmm....maybe I will just have to resort to flipping the coin.....

lol...true! I know this guy who hates coming out with us , why? coz we take like 15 min to decide what coffee to have!! hehehe...ok but there are times wen u have to make crucial decisions and either u ahve too many options are then u dont have any! but personally I feel having too many options is better than not having any!

but then again, if anything goes wrong, and if u had only one option to begin with, you could always say, "it's not my fault, what other option did I have?"...hehhee

I am far more Impulsive for my liking, so rarely do I face such problems of indecisiveness...I just go with my instinct!

do that!women have kickass intutions...

Yes it does become difficult at times to decide which path to choose and which to let go.... yes they all have heavy price to pay.

Take care & GOD bless.

Interesting post Ekta dear...


**"Whatever you choose will eventually be best for you".....

lol I know..I get so annoyed when ppl say such things to me...even worse when I hear myself saying that to others sometimes!


I agree with Kath...I follow my instincts...it could be a less appropriate choice, but who knows what happens until I go that way na? So I do what my instincts say...if it ends up in a disaster well too bad...it's a chance i took and we always take chances dun we.

Kya hua? What happened?

 
At 9:38 AM, Blogger Shikha said...

"What I want to do and what would probably be right for me!"...
i am confused too:(..and coins dont have as many sides as my options..and people must be tired hearing me rave about what i can or should do

 
At 6:00 PM, Blogger Rose said...

Haha.. How i wish things cud be as easy as flipping the coin...

Got reminded of this quote - “If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”

But i think the greatest choice of all is the choice of attitude..

I think i better shut up b4 i further complicate things..

hi ..plzz take a look at my new post urgently..n help to save some one..

 
At 2:31 PM, Blogger Harjee Kapur said...

egaSometimes there is pleasure in the leisure of decision making.
And sometimes we need to snap.
All is circumstantial.
But don’t flip a coin. Because actually you know what option to take.
All you search for is echoes of assent to your decision…

Cheers…

 
At 3:34 PM, Blogger Sudeep said...

very very true..

this reminds me of the scene frm Matrix movie where the oracle offers Neo a chocolate n says i already know whether u r going to yake it or not, but still i have to give u options n he replies tht Options is the cause of all problems

hope u properly flipped the coin..

step 1) Firmly decide no matter what you'll agree to the watever shows up in coin.

step 2) Throw the coin in air.

step 3) Now when the coin is in air, you'll know what exactly u wanna do.

step 4) Catch the coin with both hands, and slip it into ur pocket without seeing which side showed up.

At 1:13 PM, Blogger White Forest said...

well just watched Fanaah Movie yest!

This is the message of that movie which i really liked it

"Sahi aur galat ke beech faisla karna aasaan hain..

Lekin do sahi raasto mein se behtar chun na Aur Do galat raasto mein munasim ...

Yahi Hamari zindagi ke faisle karte hain"

Alright...now temme wht happened??
and y u flipping coins??

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger Sudarshan said...

Well you're right..we have several choices, and several decisions to make at every step. There ain't no alternative to this. We choose the best option, and stick to it..whether it results in good or bad!! But yeah, choices are extremely difficult sometimes!! Its not only women, but men too who face similar problems lol

eeny meanny miney mo?

 
At 10:00 AM, Blogger Chiya said...

Great! to be indecisive and think one has deciding powers.

Whenever I am in doubt always think, I am not the one who is making choices but the choices have already been made I am just executing those.

Come out of your life and watch it as if you are a director of the movie called "MY LIFE" soon even you will realise, that it just feels that we make the choices actually there isnt anything which is in our hands.

So decisive or indecisive BE HAPPY!!!!

Somebody has rightly said "Destiny is not a matter of chance but a matter of choice"

So here's your chance to choose
