#AtoZChallenge : To Choices

Image Source
Dear Choices,
Life is a journey. I’d like to think of it not just as a
journey, but a journey which demands us to make a choice at every step that we
take. Or wait, every step we take is a choice. From the time I was born, there
have always been choices to make- choice of clothes to wear, of food to eat, of
schools and colleges to work in, of places to visit.  Choices are a plenty- some easy, some
difficult. At times, I am so used to having you around, that I fail to
appreciate what I have. 
But dear choice, at times I’m so confused by you and I
wonder why you even exist. You have been so hard at times. Decisions are
difficult to make. How do you think I feel when I have to choose between the
people I love and my dreams? Between what I love to do and what I am supposed
to do? Why do you always have to come with conditions applied? Why are you so
tricky at times that when I feel I’m doing things right I just end up making
the biggest mistake?
“You are free to make whatever choice
you want, but you are not from the consequences of the choice”
How true those words ring! Good or bad, happy or sad I must
accept the consequences of my decisions. I am sure that life would be pretty
boring if you weren’t there. Each day would be the same, nothing different to
do, nothing different to learn. I am glad that I have the opportunity of
choosing what I want to, no matter how difficult the decision is. Aren’t there
many in this world who have are forced into living the type of life they don’t
want to just because of lack of you? A few people because they are scared to
take that first step and some just because they are helpless? 
Thank you for being there. It is I who need to take
responsibility of the things that I choose to do, of the decisions I make and
be prepared to face the consequences. And sometimes, no matter how difficult
and confusing you are the outcome of the decisions might bring me more
happiness than I ever know. Isn’t it? 
Gratefully yours,
Reema

  1. SO true we have free will to choose but we can't seclude us from the consequences, your post took a really positive shape at the end that after all choice is something that makes us different. Lovely post and creative idea 🙂

  3. Unknown says:

    Ah yes! Each choice has a consequence and we need to be aware of that before we choose. Nice post!

      Wow, you too? We've indeed made a good choice, haven't we?

    Like they say "we are what we choose to be"

    Choices are tricky but also amazing. Sure we have to live with the consequences, but then we would even if we didn't make the choices for ourselves. Glad to meet you on #atozchallenge

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yes rightly said. Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  9. Our existence comprises of choices that we make. From drinking milk in the morning to attending your least favorite lecture, from buying a blue shirt instead of a green shirt at your favorite store to adding an extra spoon of sugar in your coffee, from painting your bedroom wall pink to drunk-dialing your crush — you take a plethora of decisions, make choices, and bear the consequences. Choices are everywhere. Despite our parents making most of our decisions for our better and brighter future when we’re very young, we start learning how to choose between the options placed strategically in front of us and make decisions.

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yes, life is full of choices!

  10. Every word… so true. Choices spoil us, and yet without them, we're in misery. Striking a balance is key. Love your writing and good luck with the challenge!

      Thank you Samantha 🙂

  11. We face choices everywhere, and the worst choice I've faced and still face sometimes is- should I blog about this or no? 😛
    This letter captures the moments of indecision that we have when make choices, and I liked it 🙂

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yes, even I am face with that moment of indecision a lot of times.

    As Dumbledore rightly said, " It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.. "

  13. Ramya Rao says:

    Choices are there every time. But there are choices that are not in our hand that is what we are afraid of. Well said.

    1. reemwrites says:

      Thank you Ramya 🙂

  14. reemwrites says:

    Yes Dixita, that is true 🙂

  15. Life is the sum of all the choices that we make. So you better make the choice that won't make you regret in future. 🙂

    C- Can I?

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yes Stephen, rightly said.

    Great are the people who have no choices yet gather the courage to bear the consequences and eventually rise like the Phoenix.A choice is never great until you make it happen so.

    1. reemwrites says:

      Well said Brian 🙂

  18. Aseem says:

    That's a nice one. We all are free to make the choices we want to make :). But then there are those who are constrained in the choices they can make due to some reason or the other and they still succeed due to their willpower.

    1. reemwrites says:

      Will power is of utmost importance. Thanks for the comment Aseem.

    Choices are what keep us in control… or is it just a delusion, I at times wonder…

      We all wonder about such things, don't we?

  20. Vinay Leo R. says:

    Choices are good. But it feels sad when we choose one thing and watch the other path blossom perhaps?

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yes we feel bad when such things happen but we have to be responsible for our choices right?

  21. It's quite complex but we can't have everything in life. Every action will define us but I believe we must do things that make us happy. But, I will choose dreams if I cannot have both. An interesting post most of us can relate to.

      Thank you Vishal 🙂

  22. Nibhz says:

    Choices are important. As confusing they might be, our heart always know what it wants! Nice write-up! And awesome quotes to go with your letters. I'm loving them. Going to read them all!

  23. Chandni says:

    What I truly believe in , choices make us instead of us making choices.
    Your letter resonates with my thoughts completely . They leave us confused sometimes and I wont say that ive never regretted some choices ive made , but they are who have defined me .. excellent idea for a C post 🙂

    1. reemwrites says:

      Rightly said Chandni. Thank you 🙂
