Whilst bungling about one morning, yes morning….meaning before coffee, I was having a bit of a stroll at O-Dark Thirty (wee hours). Normally, I’m not one who enjoys the “bright and early” and am not among the members of the “Good Morning Club” of happy cheerful early risers, my membership card is for the “Don’t Speak To Me Before Coffee Club”. But on this particular morning there was little traffic (miracle of miracles) and time to spend in reflection and ponderance.
I do enjoy a good pondering and the occasional contemplation, for they keep my mind sharp as chocolate pudding. Once in a while a thought will emerge from the mists of the cortex and bounce along the trail of the mind until it reaches a place still in operation and function whereby it can develop from thought into idea and, thus, into concept, and finally into something worthwhile.
Consider, if you will, the following: We don’t choose to be born, but a lot of what we do after than is by our choice.
Yeah, it made my brain hurt too for a bit. But don’t give up, keep pondering.
Follow the logic here:
- We are born
- We make a decision
- If it’s a bad decision, there are consequences and we must decide what to do with the consequences (get ticked off or learn from them)
- If it’s a good decision, there are consequences and we must decide what to do with the consequences (consequences aren’t always negative).
- As a result of our decision, we decide where to go from here.
- This continues throughout life.
I’m going to get more coffee now!!!
