It’s really difficult to make decisions in this life and not question whether or not you made the right one. You can only take comfort in the certainty that nothing is a sure thing, there is no perfect choice.
There are some paths in my life that have crossed me like a freeway, welcoming me along the open road. I choose that path with confidence. I can feel it in my gut when a clear path is in front of me, I just know it’s right. But then there are these other muddled little paths, dark and stumbly with roads intersecting, and I see them all blurry like I slept in my contacts. It’s when I have to choose one of those squirrely little trails that I get all jammed up.
I was recently faced with having to choose one of these uncertain paths, and I was very doubtful of my verdict. I thought I came to it with reason and sense, but when the choice was made, I felt crushed. I have since spent a fair amount of time torturing my mind with doubt and regret. Somewhere inside me I know I made the right decision, but the emotional affect of that choice has prevented me from recognizing that.
But like I said; we can all take comfort in the unknown, because it’s the only thing we can actually count on. Sometimes it’s the hardest choices that lead us to the most rewarding outcome.

Great images! Especially like the black and white images with the shadows of the trees and the silhoutte of a man in the bus/metro. Great blog!
