Take Your Pick…

Damn…why is it I always seem to think of some great things to blog about during the day, then forget about it the moment I’m going to blog. It always happens. It’s a mental conspiracy I tell you. This is my mind working against me. Trying to keep the thoughts to myself. Come on…think…what was it that was stuck up in my noodle all day long…

Ahh…that’s right. I’ve been spending my time thinking about…well…life really. As I sit here on the bed and it’s raining heavily. All I can think about is the future. The future unknown. The future I see. The future I want to create.

We’re all human…as such we can’t really predict the future. That scares us the most because who’s to say what would happen 10 minutes from now. 10 hours from now. 10 days. 10 months. 10 years. 10 centuries. Who’s to say? We create all this illusions of comfort in our own futures by saying things like “oh God has a plan” or “God determines our destiny“. But the truth is…we still have no inkling of our futures. And that still scares us…

So what really. Maybe we can’t predict our futures. But one thing we also have as human beings. We can make our own. Maybe it’s something alot of us haven’t come to realise, but the choice is there. We always have a choice. The choice to laugh or cry. The choice to stand still or move on. The choice to work hard or lay back. The choice to choose your own futures….your own destiny. Hell…you have a choice to keep reading this blog or not. It’s still a choice. What happens in the next few minutes may not be predictable…but the outcome rests on your choice to either keep reading or not.

Choice begets choice. That’s the truth about it. The more you choose…the more you have to choose. Outcomes of previous choices are themselves the beginning of another choice to be made. The end is merely a harbinger to another beginning…another choice. That’s what this life is all about. Choices…the fact we have to keep making them. We don’t realise it…but every waking moment we live…we live in the world of choices. We make them without realising we live by them without thinking.

So what about mine? My choice? My future? My future is my choice. The choices within choices within choices. I choose to create a world where I can raise a family free of the cesspool and corruption of life. To choose to make a world where people realise reality can be reshaped to their own desires and liking. To choose a future where the bleakness and despair of the concrete jungle doesn’t sap the hope of my children. To choose a future where I don’t have to sacrifice love to create that future of free desires. To choose a future where I can cuddle with the person that gives me a sense of peace. To choose my own future free of all choices but my own.

All I want to do is smell the sweetness of desire, taste the appetite of need and just cuddle in the sweet arms of eternal peace.

Of course…it’s a choice is it not? Then again…I’ve never had a choice made that hasn’t come true yet. That’s something to choose to smile about…
