The Question

DaGoddess @ 03:59

Life is like a seven-ten split. The odds are nowhere near in your favor, but you throw the ball anyway.

What if you thought your destiny was in one place, or doing one thing, and then suddenly it appeared to be somewhere, or something, else?

What do you do?

Or do you do nothing?

This was the question posed to me and I had but one answer. I feel there needs to be balance and more than one answer. Big quandaries such as this have never been my strong suit. Input appreciated. My friend is counting on my help and I’m fairly useless.


  1. That’s the thing about life; always getting thrown curve balls. Okay, not the same sport, but still.

    Some say that it’s better to do something than nothing, but I say being hasty can sometimes get one into trouble. So… doing something is good, as long as one has thought about the consequences. The chess game of life.

    As for me, I’ve always been very impulsive and never, ever thought about consequences. I’m only where I am today by the grace of God.

    Maybe you’d better not take my advice, since I didn’t follow it. :D

  2. Well, then what am I going to tell her?

  3. A lot depends on her age and family situation, IMHO. Does she have time to recover if it’s a flop?

    I’ve trusted my gut my whole life. Been burned plenty, but the good part makes up for all of it, almost twice. Even now, on the downhill side, I’d still go with my gut. Nobody gets out of here alive. Go for the gusto. Steal tuna if it doesn’t work.

    Whatever you do, don’t do nothing, though. That sucks hairy goat rollers.

  5. Me? Sleepless in San Diego? :shock:

    As long as my husband and three kids are part of my destiny, I’ll follow it anywhere. :hug:

  6. The question one should always have at the forefront…the most important question to ask about all things:

    What is the worst thing that could happen to me?

    If the worst is something you** can live with, then go for it. If the worst is something you can’t contemplate living with, then no.

    A list of pros and cons may be in order to help visualize whether it’s a good move or not and even to help one remember what good and bad things are on the table.

    If it’s even on the good/bad then it’s a toss up and up to the person who has to live with the benefits/consequences of the action.

    (**by extension “you” includes family as well if the person is married and/or has children)

  7. Ah, yes. The list of pros and cons. That’s been done. And because there are children involved, it’s become THE MONSTER LIST

    Heh. Sometimes we make life much more complicated than it need be.
