Chance or Choice
Received an email from a pal some time back. Meant to put this
up when I received it but only managed to do it only now. Not too
sure who is the originator but I'm sure the content will strike
a cord. Here is an excerpt:
"When we meet the right person to love when we are at the right
place, at the right time, that's chance. When you meet someone you
are attracted to, that's not a choice. That's chance."
"If you decide to love a person, even with his/her faults,
that's not a chance. That's a choice."
"When you choose to be with a person, no matter what, that's
choice. Even if you know there are many people out there who are
more attractive, smarter, richer than your mate, and yet, you decide
to love your mate just the same, that's choice."
"Infatuation, crushes, attraction comes to us by chance. But
true love that lasts is truly a choice. A choice that we make."
Any comments, personal thoughts or insights? Please feel free to
share them. Do drop me a note at email@example.com and
I might post them here next month. Please take note that this is
not a forum and selections will be made based on content.
Looking forward to your mails! By the way, go read Shopaholic
Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella. Simply hilarious. It
will certainly chase those pre-wedding blues away!
