Philosophical Thought of the Day

Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

- Ernest Hemingway


How do we know when to move on in life?

This is a question I often find myself asking, well...all the time. I don't know about you, but I live constantly worrying about missing out on new opportunities. While I don't know if this is healthy way of living, it's the way I have always lived my life. Even now when I play a video game with multiple options I will always save a game so I can come back and try both approaches. But I digress from my original point. I never want to feel like I am becoming stagnant or moving too fast. I want the most from life, but just like Goldilocks: not to fast, not to slow, but just right. I could tell you how I follow my gut and instincts, but this isn't entirely true. While I do get that nagging feeling to move on, or I may ignore that anxious one and sit still just a while longer. But in the end I always try to weigh each situation logically before I make a move. It's a delicate balance just like everything else in life, but the one piece of advice that rings loudest is the most simple; live without regrets. If you ever feel that you may have a regret about a decision you're about to make take a moment and think it over first. Every moment in life has two or more outcomes, so despite what we may think we always have a choice. Life's a magician and it's bag of tricks are the choices we face every day.
