Just a quick note: for moments like these, I have a Note on my iPhone (so I can write things on-the-go) which contains a list of any inspiration that I come across in my day-to-day travels. Essentially, I use this note for back-up blog posts that I can put up here when I don’t have anything else to say – which happens quite In it, I found this title: “Where is the middle ground?” with the sub heading of: “Things aren’t always in black and white.” From these, I’m going to attempt to concoct a post on… how things aren’t always in black and white. Dear reader, join me on this adventure, where you’ll see how a freshbytes blog post is really done – late Sunday nights…

So, where is the middle ground?

Society these days is all about making decisions. However, you run into a couple of problems when you have more than one decision to make – and they’re all as enticing as each other.

The decision making becomes harder still when you have to choose something that’s, for example, the lesser of two evils. Or, when you have to choose between sacrificing the few to save the many, or to sacrifice many to save the few (I for one hope you’re never in this situation. Unless your last name is Obama and you’re the POTUS. Or you’re the POTUS in The Rock.)

I’ll admit that those examples are a little extreme, but do you get the picture? Not all decisions can be made instantaneously – to this end, I’ll take my time to decide whether I want fries with that, thank you very much.

From what I’ve posted already, you can see that I’m just rambling – there’s no actual content yet. Since I have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote those two lines (note to self, must describe events in detail), there’s not much else I can say about this. However, we will plod on…

What most people don’t realise is that most of our choices have consequences. If you don’t stop at that roundabout, then you’ll have a crash, and possibly become paralysed. If you have fries with that every single time, you’ll become obese. Sure, not all of these are strictly true, but again, do you get the picture?

Hmm. This is become futile. I’m running out of examples… Time for closing statements, I think.

At the end of the day, it’s up to you to make the decision. Pray to whatever diety you believe in to give you wisdon in your choice – but most importantly, once you’ve made you choice, stick with it!

…aaaand, that’s a wrap. There’s only so much a guy can ramble on for…
