When it comes to life's crossroads, it's always hard to choose the best directions. It's like those choose-your-own-mystery novels back in childhood, when you make a wrong decision here and then a cascade of irrevocable and unfortunate events follows. Sometimes we make our decisions based on what's comfortable, what's familiar. Why is it so hard to be different these days?
It's all about opportunity costs. The most commonly sacrificed is convenience. Nevertheless, it's also the hardest to let go of.
I hope we make our choices based on what our hearts tell us, not on what's easy. Sometimes, it's better to discard our maps. Opportunities lurk in places yet undiscovered.
But if you choose what is comfortable and convenient, I won't blame you. The path of least resistance always appears to be the best even when it's not. But who am I to say what is?
