It happens in a second. Sometimes in a millisecond. You aren’t stunned as much as you are completely unprepared and confused, but at the same time, it all just clicks. Then you begin to realize, that this is the new truth. And life will be forever different.
So the real question is, when reality slaps you in the face, do you slap back? Or do you open up to the new?
When faced with life altering realities, we as a race are competent enough to make those choices. But do you ever feel one hundred and ten percent about them? Technically, you are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of that choice. Well, that makes things a hell of a lot easier doesn’t it?
Being completely honest, what screws us up most in life is the picture in our heads of how it’s “supposed” to be. When placed at a cross-roads, do you follow the norm or blaze your own trail and hope for the best?
