We are at least once in our lifetime caught in the dilemma of to do or not to do
It may be for various reasons, some of mine were/ are
To study further or not
To search for a new job or not
To take a chance and say YES
or take the easy way out and say NO

Or the "adventurous streak" was probably figment of my own imagination , defending my life of absolute boredom , bordering on an insipid life.
Because if i was actually adventurous would i not be able to make reckless decision ,throwing caution into the wind, with no backward glance or thought for the future?
Rather than weighing the Pros and cons so much that by the end of it , pros are starting to look like cons,
If i had taken the time from all the pondering i was doing i would have realized that the opportunity had passed me, leaving me SAFE.
safe from making decisions i rather dint......
