The undisputed reality of life is that – who we are and who we become is a product of the choices we make in life. A choice can be an outcome of fate or circumstance. Some of these choices are easy and some are hard, some leave us feeling exuberant while others leave us in despair. Some are new beginnings ushering greater love and happiness while others are chapters that come to a close. Whatever it may be, the choices we make have the power to free us from or exile us to the hallows of regret. I feel that, regret is the darkest feeling a human can live with. Hence, even if that choice was obvious and the right one or the hardest to be made, we must do so believing that after some years, we’ll be able to look back at that juncture in our life as a stronger, regret-free person who made the choices then, that he/she is proud of today.
I recently learned (rather re-learned) this very valuable fact of life. And the outfit closely reflects that. You needn’t always chose between the obvious and the predicted. Likewise, heavy duty plaids needn’t always be reserved for fall and, pastels needn’t always be paired with pastels or whites per say. There is room and the choice where both can co-exist. And guess what, with no regrets!
