Well all of us have to make choices in our life . Some are big and some are small. Some don’t quite affect our future some unknowingly can have an enormous effect on our life , some are made in few second while some take nearly days . Our life gives us uncountable opportunities and equal number of chances to make the choice of grabbing the opportunity or letting it go.
When I was in 10th grade everyone around me was questing me about what have I thought about choosing my stream for 11th standard and I about my future . Around that time my dad told me some big life secrets .He said ” Life has tons of opportunity for store in us but there are few special , big and life changing ones. You have extreme control over these and it is yours and only yours decision , choice and wish that will prevail since it is your life. The first choice you have to make is when you finish your 10 th grade, the basic schooling, of choosing your subjects for the next two years. If you study for these two years your life becomes simpler and you reduce the time of flight that you will require to fly high in life . If you study and get into good university after two years of hard work your life will be all SET. But if you don’t make the correct choice and just pass your time doing nothing even then its okay… you should then at least work hard and do well in your graduation days and if you don’t do that then you again have an opportunity of again making , maybe a better choice than any other you have made in your past and erase the your past mistakes at your post graduation or at your job or ….. and the list goes on…..With every wrong decision you take you miss out on few seconds which turn to minutes and hours and days and months and years to decades. And then you start regretting everything you have done in your life and that will be the biggest mistake of your life and the worst gift you can give your parents. so just keep this in mind before taking any of your decision.”
He told me things which he thought he ought as a parent but I believe to be told at sixteen to make a choice which decides my entire future is extremely ridiculous. How am I suppose to know what is the profession that will hold my interest in the long run when today a particular topic can’t hold me for more than 15 days maximum!!! I am someone who loves to get her hands on every job and activity coming my way. I like change and love to experience different feelings , adventures(though i am not too adventures).
They say some decision made at sixteen can turn out to be your best decisions while some taken even when you have experienced life at 40 are dissasterous.i believe it’s just that you have to go with the flow and choose what makes YOU happy and not some one else….i only hope i make the best choices in my life which are not made in hurry , anger or someones influence.
