Please check out my new blog, Quelle Belle: The Beauty Blog. I would really appreciate it! [Note: Considering the fact that I don't know any male makeup afficionados, I would say it's safe to say that this site is mainly for women.]

The Fork in the Road

Everyone's different. (Okay, okay, I know that's a cliche phrase. But you'll see where I'm going with this.) Some people know what they want to be or what they want to do the second they come out of the womb. These people make it their life's goal to fulfill that dream, to be successful at it.

Then, there are people like me. People who are interested in a lot of things, but don't quite know which one to choose to become the sole focus of their career, let alone any other aspect of their life. How do people decide what they want to do? I suppose I'm simply indecisive, but I have so many interests that I feel like I would be happy doing any of them for a living. Of course, my interests don't make very easy careers, but nevertheless, the whole ordeal is frustrating.

When you're at that crossroads in your life where any decision you make affects the outcome of your future, most people find it wise to tread cautiously, while others take the leap and choose a path. Me? I'm lingering on the green light. (Thank god no one's in my lane.) There are so many options in front of me, so many roads. And I can't pick one. What if I choose the wrong one and end up like so many others, unhappy and regretting their past decisions? I guess it's like ripping off a band-aid, or jumping into a freezing pool. You just have to jump in and hope you made the right choice. You can't stay sitting on the edge forever, and if you do, you're no better off than if you'd taken a poor path.

I know this sounds like philosophical preaching or the stuff you get out of self-help books and parental lectures. But it's true. That's what people tend not to understand: the ramblings in those books? True. The lectures from your parents? True. The people writing the books made choices, have experiences, and have made it their mission to study human nature and help people out with what they find. And your parents? They've been there, done that. They know all about making decisions and what it's like to hesitate. They've been in that position, where they have to take a leap of faith. And it's not easy. For people like me, it's not easy at all. It doesn't help that I can let alone decide what to order at a restaurant with a large menu, let alone plan out my future.

I guess I'm just going to have to rip off that bandaid, and deal with the immediate pain and be glad for the eventual relief. Maybe it won't be so hard when I finally jump into the ice-cold water.
