MORAvational Monday: Options

What can I say about options? It’s no secret that I think we have too many.options

I don’t think having more options benefits us in the end. In fact, I think it’s done quite the opposite for us — too much of anything hinders us.

It’s harder to make definite decisions when there is so much to choose from.

Let’s think about it:

How hard was it for you to choose your major? Your career? The next car you were going to drive?

[highlight]We’re never satisfied.[/highlight]

We don’t know how to be because we’re concerned with the next best thing that may or may not ever come. We’ve placed such an emphasis on finding our happiness – and rightfully so – that figuring out what actually makes us happy is harder than ever. Ironic, huh?

Don’t even get me started on when it comes to dating. Why would we ever settle down when we could find 5 different options on 5 different apps? It used to be that we would find a guy or girl we connected with and explore the relationship. You know, water the grass where you have it instead of looking at your neighbors to see if theirs is greener or if you want to take over their lease? Now we have access to all these dating or hook up apps and everything is given to us with a swipe to the right or left. I can’t even freaking make a dinner reservation without looking at 10 menus, and it’s become the same with dating. No commitments because what if someone better comes along?

How is one supposed to navigate all of this?

It feels impossible.

My best advice is to appreciate what you have and water the grass where you have it! It’s so important. When you’re constantly looking for the next best thing, you often miss the fact that the best thing could be right in front of you but you were too busy focusing on looking elsewhere to maximize your options.
