People often unknowingly settle for less than what they deserve or actually deep down in their heart truly wish for. It happens to a lot of us. We restrict ourselves from looking for what is right for us with the fear of being disappointed. Instead of exploring and hunting for the right thing, we try and compromise, hold back or even mould our desires to what’s been offered to us. We just accept life the way it is. Which is not really bad for some people, but you might, just might, in the future think of it as a waste of time and effort and would make you wish you probably could have had better.
It’s only when the temporary happiness leaves, do we realize that it was just another mean of plain disappointment. What remains then? Regret!!!
It is always better though to realize it before it’s too late.
Everything else can still be fixed but the one thing that can never ever be replaced is the (wasted) time. No one would want to say “I wish I had…” or “I wish I hadn’t…” when they grow old.

TIME really is precious. All we have is now.
Make the right choices, choose the correct people. Listen to your heart when it says something’s right and also listen to your gut feeling when it hints something isn’t. We always get the signs. Listen to your inner voice. And if you still feel confused then choose to play safe. As life is a game which surely has negative scoring.
Here are 4 criteria’s on which you can score your life:
- Health ___
- Work ___
- Relationships ___
- Activity (Hobbies)___
1 Regret = 1 negative score or Minus 1
1 Satisfaction = Plus 1
And if you find satisfaction in doing the wrong thing, then it’s definitely a FOUL. That’s when you find yourself being stuck. You can not go ahead, nor can you go back. And you find yourself saying “I’m working so hard on my health or relationships or work but I’m not getting anywhere” That’s simply because you’re trying to find “Satisfaction” or “Happiness” in the wrong job or relationship or people or just things in general.
If you’re among the lucky one’s who don’t need to put that extra effort or go out of your way and still doing okay, well good job then. You are on the right track 🙂 If not, that’s okay too. Keep exploring and see what make’s you smile and make sure you do it at least once a day. Something that inspires you.
Remember, it’s not a race. It is YOUR life and life is Single Player game. You don’t have or need a competition.
Play your own game, keep your own pace and break your own highest score 🙂 <3
