Choices



Today, as I stand on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and observe the waves come crashing, I contemplate upon my life. 

The goals I had in mind, but the choices I made, paved an unknown path. 

It made me wonder why I chose to tread on it? Why didn't I give up and decide to pursue my goals instead? 

Just then, droplets of water fall on my face, and a smile crosses my lips. Aah! It gave me happiness and peace of mind. 

It's impressive how life can flow in a flashback anywhere as a river of consciousness.
