Everyday we make decisions that in one way or another affects someone else around us. Our friends, our family, even a complete stranger. Most of our decisions are small and unnoticeable usually to ourselves and even others. Most are just routine, that require no thought, and are barely even considered a decision. But then there are those big, life altering, fork in the road dilemmas that we all at one point or another have been faced with. The most “important” decision we’ve ever had to make. However regardless to how big or small our dilemmas are in life at some point we have to make a decision. But here’s the more important part; “Are we making the right or wrong decision?” And if it’s the wrong decision, do we know where making the wrong choice? Do we even care that what we choose could be wrong? When we make decisions everyday, how often do we think of the consequences of our actions…our decisions? What will be affected, more importantly WHO will be affected? How long will the effects last for? How will this affect my job, my reputation, my finances,etc?
A friend related a experience once of the affect of a decision that someone very close to them had made, that had a strong impact on many that surrounded them. He said before you decide to make a wrong decision, remember this moment. Remember the hurt, pain, and tears that you see on your friends and family’s face right now. And remember that the decisions you make don’t just affect you, but they affect the ones you love, and everyone else that surrounds you.
Regardless of the size or importance of each decision we make everyday; always remember that in someway it will affect someone else. Because once a choice has been made we can’t always undue it!
Ha, look at that, a dead bird.
I wonder who killed it. Probably some hoodrat on drugs. But it doesn’t really matter. I can’t believe that out of all the times I’ve been here, I’ve never run into another person. I guess no one else gets comfort from an abandoned building. Maybe I should try for…
I really like this! And I love abandoned buildings too!

I often wonder if I had more motivation and less intimidation in my life where or what I would be…If one small detail of my life was different would I have the same appreciation for things as I do now? Would I appreciate things even more? Or maybe I wouldn’t even care. I wish I had more time to appreciate the smaller things in my life…there are countless beautiful sunsets I’ve missed…have I ever even walked in the rain and not cared about getting wet? How many years have I said I’m gonna take pictures of the leaves changing in the fall? Or I’m gonna walk on the beach in the snow when winter comes? We have all had to endure broken promises in our lives, but as I have come to realize in my short 24 years of life is that many times we break more promises to ourselves than any other individual does in our lives. We seem to be more hurt by the pain that others inflict on us, and yet we overlook the pain we bring upon ourselves. It’s kinda weird if you think about it…we can escape other people but we can never completely escape ourselves…no matter what direction you turn to YOU yourself will always be there. You can’t walk out on yourself, you can’t leave yourself alone, you can’t walk away from yourself. YOU will always be there, and no matter what there’s nothing you can do about that. Take the time to do the things that we have all promised ourselves that we would do someday. Stop and look at the sunset…you will never see it again it again…
I often think of the way that things used to be. What I was like as a kid and growing up, and whether I was really happy or not. I wonder when things went wrong or if they were ever right. Or why no one ever tried to change a thing. Or maybe they did and things just didn’t work out. Did you want a better life? Did you want things to change? Did you ever even think that anything was ever an issue? Why is this all OK? Why is it that I’m the only one that see’s the whole picture, and how things just shouldn’t be this way? Or maybe you do see it and you just don’t care. But I couldn’t imagine going thru life seeing and knowing all that is and has ever gone wrong, and never wanting to change a thing……
