More Softball!

Sunday, June 03, 2012

Headed back to the ball yard. All three teams still alive in their tournaments!

Three teams, eight games, six victories. All in all not a bad day. And it was cool!

Softball!

Saturday, June 02, 2012

Not good exercise because I am watching and not playing. Three granddaughters on three different All Star teams playing in three double elimination tournaments. Fortunately they are all at the same park! A long day of watching softball and socializing. Gotta love it!

Take the Road Less Traveled!

Friday, June 01, 2012

Rwo roads diverged in nthye deep wood and I took the one less traveled
` Robert Frost

LOST TRAVELER OR ACCIDENTAL TOURIST
By Shazneen Pathak
Life has been like a road, some roads are big, and some are small. Some are straight and some are topsy turvey. As roads would have it, there are crossroads in life as well. The most confusing, baffling, difficult whatever you call it, is the crossroad in life.
When we face a crossroad, the mind comes to a standstill as to which road to take? Which road is going to take us where! There are few roads, which will lead you to happiness, fame, glory, and fortune, but on the other hand there are few which would take you towards sadness, failure, defeat, disappointments.
We have to decide which road we would take with completely no clue where we going to land at the end! No assurances No guarantees! Since life offers us no guarantees and assurances, it's better to take that risk and make that decisions because unless we don't decide, and go that way we will never know whether the decision was right or wrong.
Instead of standing on the crossroad better to move forward. It's not always that the road, which we think is right for us, is going to give us happiness, there are certainly going to be heartbreaks. You might not achieve what you had thought, but at least you tried. We really do not have power on the outcome but we definitely have the power of our decisions. Taking risks, does not mean to decide in the spur of a moment! Think and then move forward.
If we had known that the road we are choosing is a wrong one and it can make us lost, or the outcome is going to be bad, we would have never decided to go that way. We will only know about the outcome once we walk that road, whether the decision was correct or worthless.
When we have to choose, we need to analyze the options we have, sometimes the options are many, sometimes very few and sometimes none at all. We need to weigh the pros and cons, make option of our own if we don't have any! But at no point take decision haphazardly.
We cannot find that confidence to decide at times, especially when we have no idea what the consequences are going to be. Trust yourself and think that it's the best decision at that point of time. Do not regret it whatever the outcome, learn from it and make better decisions in future. Always remember life will give us more chances to make right decisions.
And after all, I believe it's all the matter of perspective, as to what you want to be a lost traveller or accidental tourist, because you never know which road opens which new horizon!

    The key is not regretting it if you've made a wrong choice and learning from it, because life is not always going to be about making the right choice all the time. It just doesn't work that way. BUT we do have to try to make the best choice we can with the information we have.

Thanks for this wonderful blog.

Is there anything worse than being blind? Yes, a man with sight and no vision.
- Helen Keller

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

Attitude!

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
