Life's Options or Opportunities?

Life is something very complicated. In life we are always faced with the choice for us sometimes hesitant to select it. Even in doubt even though we are still forced to choose, so what we are doing as if like water flowing and that's what makes us feel chosen. But somehow life is not just a choice. Have we feel that life is an opportunity to pursue what we want so that we not just go with the flow but against the current?. That is where the essence of life how do we dare go against the flow?. That is what determines the quality of our lives as if our current opponent. When we opposed it flows toward a better direction then we will be successful, but when our current opponent is against the rules then we would be futile. Really?

Indeed I can not choose to be anyone when I was born, who my parents, how my physical form, when it's time I was called back by God. no matter where life does not give us the option to choose, it's all pure veto power of God for His creatures. In life, of course it's all our choice, we who choose Which road we must take each day, a man who like what we live every day, it's all a choice we as human beings, and life is also providing opportunities from a variety of options, be sensitive and observant to the opportunities you are available, it is a challenge in our lives. sometimes opportunity does not come twice in our lives. So, I think life is a choice which provides the opportunity. Greetings.

Life as you have rightly put is complicated.As far as choice is concerned we should opt for that which we have aptitude or capacity.Here i wish to emphasize that some of us due to misfortune can't get adequate opportunity or choice.It is the pace or way of life which makes us feel we are going with the flow of water.At times we are forced due to principles or circumstances to take a contrarian view or swim against the tide.If our conscience says we have to go against the mainstream, we are forced to go against the flow.To go against the much chosen path of others if we have the courage of conviction and stand our ground against all odds,we could with hard work succeed in our effort.But if we do something wrong or which is morally repugnant to our value system it will be futile or harmful to our inner selves or conscience.

According my life motto: "life is always full of choices and how we dare to bear the risks of the options that we take. " but the choice is there because of opportunity. so in my opinion, the choice position together with opportunities. they are interrelated, and can not be compared.

I think life is a choice, where the GOD has chosen us to live when we are born from the womb of the mother and gives us life on earth. That's life it was called a chance, an opportunity which we should be able to survive to live. We got us going to win but if you just remain silent did not want to use the chance of you going to fall. So life is associated with the choices and opportunities.

I am not sure what you are saying here, but as in life, we do have our choice indeed. I would definitely try to do my best, and select the best choice for my life than not adventure to take an opportunity though. That is life, and that we should always take on a journey.

Yes I think that life is an opportunity. And with it, we are given options to choose from to have more of this great opportunity. It is very complicated indeed but I guess that no matter what we choose to do with this opportunity given to us, we should be responsible for it. Whatever happens, whatever we may have or lose, I believe that we should still live well. We should see this life as something more than a daily obligation. There is so much to explore and so little time do it. In the end, I think that it is only at our last moments in this world that we will find out the meaning of our existence.
