Variety …. Well they say it is the spice of life , but somehow I don’t think that is applicable to everything in life , lol , imagine the chaos if it was and trust me people are quite silly enough without that . We find it hard enough now to make decisions without having too much variety , man you could be stuck forever just making a choice about something and making decisions at times is too hard anyway . Imagine if you had to sift through a huge variety of things before you could even do a thing how long would it take you to even get sorted for the day ? I can see it would be horrendous just trying to get a start on the day . Be night time before you even got a single thing done and that would not be good for anyone or anything that is for sure , sometimes we are better off without so much variety . Just think about the procrastinators in our lives … yikes !! What a nightmare that would be when they take forever just to make 1 choice !! I personally think I would be kicking my favourite procrastinator up the bum in frustration lol , come close to that enough now if I am honest . Shhhhh don’t tell him I said that …lol
Variety can be good in some instances but I still think there are way too many times where variety is just a pain in the proverbial like , what colour car/dress/ shoes/ house … you know what colour do we want and have you any idea at all how many colours you can get these days ?? Sheeesh there are literally thousands of colour combinations now , or there is the huge variety of plants if you are making a new garden or wanting plants for inside or on a balcony . What size / colour/ shape/ flowering type /perfume/ sustainability , lol , as you see way too much variety yet again .What if you are renovating a house/boat/bus/car ?? all the same parameters come into play yet again what style/colour/shape when renovating you come up with a whole new world of decisions on a huge variety of things and styles and situations it’s enough to drive you barmy if you ain’t already lol .
Well now we decide we want to get a car , right here we go again on variety , you have to decide , car, station wagon, van, ute, bus ,convertible or maybe even a motor bike …now what ? After you finally make your mind up what type you want next question how big a motor do you want ? A big 1 with a V8 , a 6 cylinder , a 4 cylinder or if its a bike it is maybe only 2 cylinder , all depends on how much it costs to run and how much you are prepared to pay for the fuel you will need . Now you have decided that next is the colour , lol, not going to even try to list the many colours available here but you get the drift. So then what’s next ? What’s next is what brand ?? Lol now have a guess how many brands of cars , vans , etc there are out there ? There are heaps of course, here is that variety we started out talking about yet again , there seems to be no end of things that give us a huge variety , that takes us ages and ages to make a decision on , never seems to be an end does there ?Lol and don’t get me started on computers !! Just how many types and kinds of these are there now ?? I give up lol.
Is it always a good thing to have so much variety in our lives ? Having some variety is good but really there are times when it all gets too much for the poor old human brain to sort through , who had the bright idea to give us so many things or situations that have such variety making is so very hard for us to just get what we want or want done , get done ? As I said a small variety is good so we don’t all have the same things or look the same or do the same , but somehow it has all got way out of control so we now have a huge variety to sort through even when we wish we didn’t . How long did the last thing you had to make a choice for out of a big variety take , 1 hour , 2 , 3 , more ? For the big things it can take days and weeks to make the decisions , blimey ..makes me tired now just thinking about it lol . Might be the perfect time to ” phone a friend ” lol make them nuts too if they aint already .
So in this so called enlightened era is it a good thing or a bad to have so much variety in so many things ? Is it good for us to have to make so many decisions so many times in our lives ? To be honest I am not sure but boy at times it can be fun at other times a dam night mare …Lol.. Here’s to variety ..!! Long may it go on and long may it drive us all nuts !! Not that I can see it stopping anytime soon ..lol ..
