A few months ago, I was faced with something that I knew I had to make a decision about. I didn’t like it, and I wondered if I will be doing the right thing. I thought long and hard, if this is the thing I’ll want to be doing the rest of my life. Will it fulfill me? Will it make me look back in ten years and say “I’m glad I did this”? Will it accomplish what I want to achieve?

After deliberating, I decided. And now that it’s so close, I’m apprehensive. Have I made the right decision? Will this backfire on me? What if it’s not something I envision it to be? How if one day I wake up and realize I’ve been doing it wrong all this while??

I guess the important thing is that you try, and remember to be true to yourself, and what you want in life. Some people don’t understand this. Some people can’t see through the money and fame. Some people seem to think that the more money you have, the higher your post, the more successful you are in life.

But at what cost? At the cost of sacrificing your time for something that will not take care of you the older you get? At the cost of sacrificing your time for family and loved ones? At the cost of sacrificing the needed alone time to calm nerves and thoughts?

As much as how sacrifice is part and parcel of life, for me, family and loved ones will always come first. Alone time is essential, as it keeps you centered. So yea, I’m not sacrificing that either.

So hopefully I’ve made the right decision, only time will tell.


When the lights go out
We'll be safe and sound
We'll take control of the world
Like it's all we have to hold on to
And we'll be a dream...
