Piecing it together

There is a lot of merit in piecing everything together, even if it is something as simple as a jigsaw puzzle to something life keeps throwing our way...

The biggest benefit, ofcourse, is that we are working towards putting it together, towards a final goal, an end result, which in itself results in lots of positivity..

Also, humans seem to have a tendency to play with puzzles... we like toying with the conditions to figure out what fits the situation best....

And finally, if the end result is as expected or better, the sense of achievement is incomparable.. the joy of completion with the desired outcome provides a sense of satisfaction which most daily activities are deficient of...

Ultimately, a puzzle might puzzle us... 
but once we solve the puzzle...
we are often puzzled as to 
why the puzzle puzzled us so much :)

An instant of opportunity

What would you do if you are unexpectedly given the choice of choosing you future... 
or atleast a form of it...
Would you jump at the opportunity, or just blank out like me...

Let me explain...
there were multiple thoughts running through my head just at that instance...
first, and foremost, as ironic as it may sound, I wondered if I might end up underestimating myself (like duhhh !)
the other one ofcourse, was wondering if life (or rather the circumstance) was playing a joke on me...

Effectively, the opportunity and the option was lost...

Maybe, sometime in the future, I'd wonder if I would've been better off making the choice !!!
