Five Ws

I chanced upon a short post and I’m writing this for you because it summarizes the five important things when making life decisions.

1. WHO you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone.

Do not let anyone have their way or bully you into being subservient to the point of being held stupid for the actions you take on their behalf. There’s a time and a place knowing when to give in and when to say NO because it is not right, not fair, and not just. Only creationists will think that the world was made for them. That thought is self serving. People who are busy at creating and living in illusions are best avoided.

2. WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery. Do not be afraid to explore.

A friend of mine once said that he drew up a bucket list. And he was 55 when he drew it up! It’s never too late to explore anything in life. Tomorrow will always be a mystery and the good part is to love it & live it! Life is beautiful. Learn to smell the roses as we travel the difficult roads. We will learn to appreciate life more this way.

3. WHEN life pushes you over, you push back harder.

There will always be tomatoes thrown your way. Don’t take it personally. Sometimes it’s a wake up call. You probably crossed the line. However, if you didn’t deserve the tomato, pause. Breath in deep. Reflect. If you still feel like throwing back the tomatoes to the jealous bastards, do it! It’s nothing personal as well.

4. WHERE there are choices to make, make the one you won’t regret.

Every choice made is our responsibility. Being accountable for the choice is a sign of maturity. Whether you choose good or evil, make the choice where you sleep better at nights. Karma after all is such a painful payback.

5. WHY things happen will never be certain. Take it in stride and move forward.

Because we don’t have a crystal ball, tomorrow will always be another day. Living in the anxiety of tomorrow isn’t a good thing. Other people’s problems are not yours to bear. Let them play their own dramas. If the seas get too rough, keep your eyes on the compass of your goals in life. That should serve as your handy guide on how to weather the storms on your travel to your destination.
