“I have no choice.” He said to me.
“You always have a choice. Sometimes you need to choose between two sucky choices but you have a choice.” I answered, trying to keep my frustration in check at the disheartened and fatalistic life attitude.
Even though at times it may look it, the world is not black and white. Every minute of every day we have the free will to make a hue of choices. Sometimes we don’t like our options, sometimes we have too many amazing options and sometimes we make the choice passively, by not making a choice. (Which is as much of a choice as an active choice.)
We get to decide. We get to control our choices and our reaction to our choices. Our choices color our lives with depressing tones, or paint them in vivid creative possibilities.
And even when something is black and white it can be beautiful, it all depends upon how you choose to view it.
Do you think of the world as a place of black and white choices?
This picture was my submission this past week. (I am so literal sometimes.) Go on, click on the picture and like it on Facebook.
And here were my rejects. Enjoy. (If the pictures are not clear enough, click on them-they get clearer.)
And of course I was lucky to have this great shot taken of me during a Tel Aviv photowalk by Yosef Adest, the founder of Fifty-Two Frames. Only fair since I snapped the picture above of him.
