I should have said yes!

As humans, we make decisions everyday in our lives. We make a decision to wake up in the morning, to go to school, or to work. We make a decisions on which shoes to wear, which tie to wear, weather to put on make-up or not.

Some decisions are made unconsciously. Most importantly we take decisions for our own survival. Most of the time, we do things to fit in to the requirements of society. Therefore our decisions are largely shaped by society at large.

There comes a time in all of our lives where we get to pull the “should have” “would have” “could have” cards. In life we take decisions, and we sometimes forget that these decisions we mate will catch-up with us later in the future. 

A certain friend of mine once decided on playing the lottery, he had all the numbers written down on a piece of paper, and felt strongly about these numbers. This guy gave so much passion to winning with these numbers. When he got to the play station he decided not to play because he does not believe in gambling.

Guess what, the numbers did not come out on that night, but they did on the following week. He regrets holding back those numbers till this day. "Damn, I should have said yes to that feeling, and that instinct". There is nothing that we can do once the final decision is taken.

The only thing that we can do is let go of the “should have” “could have” “would have”, take responsibility for our actions, reboot and move on.
