I have always believed that life is an ocean of choices and that we always have a choice. For this I can’t put up with those who attribute their “misfortune” either to fortune or to “God”‘s will .
Here in my world ,a big number of people keep talking about “maktoub” that mighty invisible wind that sail their boat in the ocean of life towards shores they never choose.
We can make choices .At times I wonder why they refuse to admit this truth ?Is it trick to not take the responsibility of their deeds.I choose ,he chooses ,she chooses ,you choose ,they choose .Choosing is a right like all other rights and it is equally important to that to freedom .Actually choice and freedom go hand in hand ,for not choosing would make you feel deprived of your freedom and to enjoy your freedom you have first to exercise your right to choose .
Making choices cover all aspects of our life including relatinships, work ,health ,dreams ,money and even love .This might explain why the world is built on binaries ,like yes and no ,good and evil ,love and hatred, revenge and forgiveness.
From my experience,I ended up with an undeniable truth : financial independence guarantees our right to choose .No one dares to decide for you .I know that we live in a world where rules reign and we have to comply to mainstream sociey but when the chance comes to choose ,seize it and make a choice even it is not satisfactory .Though some decisions might be painful for us or people around ,it’s far better than staying on the fence , or be a puppet in the hands of others .The mere feeling is rewarding ;you feel alive and worthy.
