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.
