Some midweek fun for you guys that have to go to work 345 days a year unlike some lucky person who happens to have twelve weeks of holiday a year (evil laugh!). This shot was taken - again through sneaky means - at MK Shopping Centre which is very originally(!) called "The Centre". I was sat in a unobstrusive corner, looking through the lens to see what I could capture. And voila! This man walks into my view and stands there just long enough for me to capture the moment and even hypothesise about his circumstances. Hence the title, "Choices, Choices"...
How do we make our choices? What does the way we make our choices tell about us?
From choosing the right fast food menu to choosing what colour shirt to wear in the morning, to choosing the family car to choosing your degree, your career, your partner for life, life is full of choices we are faced with on a daily basis. Some people welcome the opportunity those choices will bring with joy, zest and enthusiasm, both arms wide open; some, on the other hand, fold their arms in a defensive cross on their chest, sulk away at the first sight of a fork in the road they have been so far travelling without a care in the world, afraid of making a choice, a decision that will take them away from their easy path, from their comfort zone, and make them regret having chosen the road they chose. As Robert Frost (The Road Not Taken) says,
|"I shall be telling this with a sigh|
|Somewhere ages and ages hence:|
|Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—|
|I took the one less traveled by,|
|And that has made all the difference."|
Today make a decision to be more assertive with your decision so you can take whatever life may throw at you on the path that you've chosen, confident and secure in the knowledge that you wouldn't have it any other way, so you never look back at "the road not taken".
