All These Choices, And Yet…

You have all these options laid out in front of you, and yet you’re not satisfied.


Sky’s the limit for all the possibilities you can do, and yet just the thought of it stresses you out.


All these choices, and yet… you’re sad.


Why is that?


Why is it that whenever we are presented with choices, we somehow cower in fear? Why is it that with all these choices, we take days, even weeks, to decide and once it’s time, a doubt creeps up and we have to delay the decision again?


A simple yes or no is already hard to choose from so why do we always have this need to include the maybe’s, what-ifs, and but’s?


Is it because we are scared of the outcome? Or is it because the choices aren’t enough?


Or is it because we were used to be presented with so much that we think when we eliminate all the other choices, we lose something beneficial? Some what if’s and what could have’s?


You do know that through that way of thinking, you will never know what’s good for you, right?


You need to make a decision for you to grow and move forward. You make wrong choices but at least you know not to repeat them again. You make the right choices and at least you know what is best and what works for you.


If you’re presented with endless choices, then just pick the first three your gut tells you to choose. And whether we want to admit it or not, we already know what is the best choice.


Yet we come up with all these reasons, all these excuses, to convince ourselves to go search for other options when it’s already right in front of you.


Change that mindset.


Be firm. Trust yourself. Find the good in what you’re blessed with. Instead of stressing yourself to think out of the box, why not just increase the size of your box?


If something goes wrong, cry. After you’ve dried your tears, wear your armor again. Just know that your “losses” could have been a source to an even greater problem.


Learn when to stop searching and when to finally settle on something.



Making a decision is scary, I absolutely know that, but what’s scarier is letting all these chances—all these blessings—slip through your fingers.

"2020 is shaping up to be the year of focus and curiosity. I’ve found that curiosity must go hand in hand with focus to achieve significant things. Otherwise we end up trying to pursue too many things, which in turns makes us dissatisfied. In this day and age, less is more." — @zairatan .

There are just things you should not feel guilty about. Cancelling plans is alright. Choosing to not go online for weeks is understandable. Saying "no" is okay. Taking some time out for yourself is not a luxury—it's a necessity. Please, take care of yourself. YOU are your biggest asset. YOU are your greatest investment 🌻

2019 was quite something, wasn't it? I'm pretty sure it was for me. But amidst all the chaos and frustrations this year, I felt a lot closer to myself than ever before. I hope you felt the same way too. If not, I hope 2020 will give you clarity in all aspects of your life! Hang in there! ✨ .

Have you checked up on your friends yet? No, you do not need to be physically with them always. Nor do you have the responsibility to contact them 24/7. But a simple message like this from time to time can make their (or anyone's tbh) day ✨

For the ones who are afraid to start:
I have been in that position. I was scared with the thought of turning on my laptop and start typing out the words. 
I was scared with the thought of opening a book to read.
I was scared of getting ready to go out.
But do you know what scared me more?
I was scared that I was never going to reach my destination.
I was scared that I was going to be the reason for my own regrets.
So I started.
And I never stopped ever since ✨🌻

There is so much power in written words. If you are like me who can't perfectly relay what they want to say vocally, just remember that there are other forms of communication. Writing is one. Don't conceal your voice✨
