Life lessons #17

It is vital that you commit 100 percent to your decisions. I live better listening to my intuition on most occasions.

Sometimes it tells me that the decision I made is no longer the right one. It may have been right for a time, or maybe I just made a mistake.

Nobody’s intuition is perfect.

Regardless, it’s time to choose another path. The only problem with that? I hate the conflict that correcting a mistake or changing my mind causes.

There have been times when I dated someone, took a job, joined a hobby or made a decision that, at the time, made sense. It was a good decision.

As time went on, I realized that it wasn’t a GREAT decision and I had to change course. This means telling the people involved, that you have to move on. And that can lead to hurt feelings, and angry shouting matches.

I’ve learned through these experiences that it’s ok to let go of perfection. The years I spent trying to control everything was miserable and predictably safe.

It’s ok to screw up. It’s also ok to grow personally and find that a decision you made is no longer the best one for you. It’s ok to fail. Do everything you can to be kind to those involved. Reflect on your intentions and if you find that they are pure, be at peace in your choice.

Shades Of Life


When I am not busy scribbling and sketching away on little pieces on paper, I am found cozying on my recliner enjoying movies and cartoons. A dreamer and an artist, I am in love with all things beautiful. Prefer Bukowski and Gulzar over Shakespeare and Tagore. And nights over daytime. Anti-social and friendly in the same breath. Desperately trying to bring being nice in vogue. This blog is an itinerary of a girl amidst the cacophony of metropolitan life facing the struggles & unexpected surprises that life offers.
