Spoiled for choice

Living in a world where

“Anything is possible”

opens our eyes to see possibility

Yet simultaneously blurs our view

With so much to choose from that it

Makes it near impossible

To focus on what matters.

Worse still, even once we have made a choice

The knowledge that there may been a better option

Has the power to diminish our satisfaction

With the choice we actually did make.

Infinite possibilities are not well suited

To a finite reality-

We can only do so much in a day

Be so much in a lifetime,

And there will always be other options.

What we really need, then, are not more choices

But more decisions made

More leaps of faith

More living of actual life

And not just the possibility of it.
