Life is like That?

Heroes - the only show i watch regularly.. like i've said before, i've always been a sucker for the superhuman variety... but okay, thats enough for context...
last week, i heard a very interesting argument on the show. and since the premise was the choices we make in life, i was intrigued even more, and enought o make it a debate..it went this way..
every person has a choice - he can have a life full of meaning or a life full of happiness... if he wants a life of happiness, he has to live in the present and if he wants a life of meaning, he has to wallow in his past, and obsess about the future.. both cannot happen simultaneously...whaddya think?

until next time, the choices we make...

Yep, very true!!
If one looks back, life is all about 3-4 days of decisions, which made the life or ruined it!!

Remember the Road Not Taken !?! There is always a sigh about the choices that i left out and where the choices i did take have brought me to !

you are talking about the choices we make and I was thinking of writing about a wrong choice i made with my finance and suffering.

Funny I should come across this today.

Right now am right in the middle of making this decision.

Should I be with the one who lives for the present or the one who finds meaning in everything by looking at the past n future.

Very well said M.
