Life offers us a series of conundrums where there sometimes is no clear answer and we are left wondering what the right choice is. We are often at crossroads and we can take one path and not the other but we must decide nonetheless only to be left reflecting on whether we had been correct.

As we get older we can see the clear map of footsteps we took to see where the falls, the traps and the happy surprises were and with the advantage of hindsight weigh our perceived level of success or failure. The reality is that our time is so brief here and when measured against the cosmic it is but an instant. In that knowledge we can try to take advantage of that brevity to make it count and taking the focus off our own problems and looking around us is probably a good start.
