Reena’s Exploration Challenge #138

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are players. They have their entries and exits” famously said Shakespeare.
Shakespeare got it all wrong. Life is what we choose, and everything else is just existence.
 The suggestion that life is pre-determined is always up for debate.
We do have choice.
What we choose can be to our benefit or not.
I made choices in life that seemed a good idea at the time but in hindsight was it because I was seeking an easy route through life as I sought security?
The choices I made I tried to make the best of and fortunately for me I found I enjoyed them after a while.
Working in the public sector, exposing yourself to the whims of so many when you are basically a shy and retiring person is daunting to say the least.
There’s a part of you that wants to achieve and be someone and there’s another part that would prefer you stand back and let it all happen around you and not attract any attention.
Entrances and exits, I made a lot, and in hindsight I think I made more exits that entrances, and lets face it at some stage, no matter what, it’s the exits that will be the last thing you do.

    I agree Michael that it’s our choices in life that define us. And there may be things that are fated but what and how we do in life is our choice.
    And yes that final exit would be the end. Hope we can contribute something good before that time.

    Yes. Enjoying choices after a while is real. Maybe we get Used to things we were afraid of before.

    Michael’s take on Exploration Challenge #138

  4. I understand that dilemma: to seize the chances in life, make the most of opportunities, expose oneself to potential mistakes; or to meander on in the same old way, safe, uneventful and ultimately a disppointment
