"The One with living your present..."

1
Oh it's back to work this week...

I'm at a standstill at the moment. In retrospect; I'm among those many, many people who at this point of our lives often question the choices we've made that shapes our very present today. Did I make the right decision of ditching my life in KK for a new page here in UPM? Did I adjourned into the right tunnels of absolute devotion towards knowledge and my passion for science that I turned my back on the other great prospects of me? And did I even perceived it right to be purusing my education on the untreaded paths of a new field of research that I risk the fear of being alone in the dark? Some questions I often find hard to answer on certain days.

Now that's something to stir things up.

Frankly, by experience and the little wisdom I have it really doesn't matter. It's a choice we've made and left behind along with our past. "Whatever happened happened and couldn't have happened in any other way possible..." as Morpheus distinctively preached. To me it has always been about making the right choice over the presumed one. One could assume the lion would cause less harm to humans in a cage but does the choice of isolating the beast from the confines of its domain the right one to call? And how justified is the predisposition of oneself to perform what he or she deems less passionate about over the ones their heart and soul subsides into? Sometimes it is too easy to answer....

I quote the mighty lyrics of Gavin DeGraw;

"I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately, all I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind. I'm trying to look around and wonder what I've gotta do, and who I'm supposed to be, but I don't wanna be anyone other than me.."

Alas, at the end of the day, the only thing that we can do is hope for a better tommorow than today, and to live tommorow better than yesterday.
