It's All Up To You




You are the person that has to decide;

Whether you'll do it or toss it aside.


You are the one who makes up your mind;

Whether you'll lead or linger behind.




Whether you'll try for the goal that's far;

Or be contended to stay where you are.


Take it, or leave it.


Here's something to do;

Just think it over.


It's all up to you!

  2. It is a matter of Yes or No, I can or I can't?
    No matter what will be the outcome of our decision in life, it is up to us.

    What matter most is that we have to think twice or more before we pursue of that thoughts.

  3. Think it over... Tama. Sa lahat kasi ng desisyon natin, hindi man tayo ang apektado siguradong may ibang maaapektuhan.

    This will be my thought for the day. Thanks Pope!

    "Bahala ka! Sungay mo, sulong mo. Buntot mo, hila mo!" : )

  13. No one else can answer this... At the end of the day, it's still our decision and the answer is in our hands!

    I'd like to share this anecdote about an Old Wise Man (Author Unknown)... sorry Pope for taking so much space longer than your post...hehehe

    High in the Himalayan mountains lived a wise old man.

    Periodically, he ventured down into the local village to entertain the villagers with his special knowledge and talents. One of his skills was to "psychically" tell the villagers the contents in their pockets, boxes, or minds.

    A few young boys from the village decided to play a joke on the wise old man and discredit his special abilities.

    One boy came up with the idea to capture a bird and hide it in his hands. He knew of course, the wise old man would know the object in his hands was a bird.

    The boy devised a plan.

    Knowing the wise old man would correctly state the object in his hands was a bird, the boy would ask the old man if the bird was dead or alive. If the wise man said the bird was alive, the boy would crush the bird in his hands, so that when he opened his hands the bird would be dead; if the wise man said the bird was dead, the boy would open his hands and let the bird fly free. So not matter what the old man said, the boy would prove the old man a fraud.

    The following week, the wise old man came down from the mountain into the village. The boy quickly caught a bird and cupping it out of sight in his hands, walked up to the wise old man and asked, " Old man, old man, what is it that I have in my hands?"

    The wise old man said, "You have a bird." and he was right.

    The boy then asked, "Old man, old man tell me, is the bird alive or is it dead?"

    The wise old man looked at the boy and said, "The bird is as you choose it."

    And so it is with your life.

  15. Sabi ni Og Mandino:

    "Don't blame your condition to others. You are what you are through your own choice alone."

    For me the most basic and priceless gift we often take for granted is the power to choose. So choose wisely, and exercise proper decision in our divine agency.
