Brida – The Choice of Missing out other Choices

Brida – The Choice of Missing out other Choices, sounds silly, right. But trust me this is the wisdom of life I never learnt till I read this book. I recently read this book BRIDA a novel written by once again my favorite Brazilian author Paulo Coelho.

You know what if I would be given with an offer To Date someone at present on the earth, do you know who would it be? Of course it is this Virgoan Author Paulo Coelho. I mean I am simply slayed by his straight yet poetic narratives of the characters in his stories. How could he delve into such a deeper layer of human psychic, I often wonder, as if he has X-Ray eyes.

The story of BRIDA revolves around the tales of a young Irish girl who embarks on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening with the themes of love, soulmate, destiny, and the search for meaning in life.

It has all the ingredients of Paulo’s Style of Cooking of a story. Like mysticism, magic, nature, philosophy, and storytelling.  And he blends them magically in such a way that the entire narrative becomes lively. That’s what special about this Brazilian author.

Well, I am not going to write a review of this book as I believe Paulo Coelho books don’t need it at all. But what unique prospective I learnt from this book is “About Choices that we miss out.

Let me put a direct quote from this book which is my best takeaway out of it.

“Choosing a path meant having to miss out on others”.

How true it is. I mean though we all know this truth but trust me I had never reflected upon it relating to my life. It reminded me a scene of the Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer Bollywood Movie He jawani, He Deewani where Deepika says, “Zindagi mein kuch na kuch toh miss hota hi hai, Kabir”.

The Story of BRIDA made me reflect upon the inevitability of missing out on certain experiences, opportunities, or people as we navigate through life. Making choices often means losing other options. It’s a fundamental aspect of decision-making. That means it’s not just only about the strength of the option that we choose but it’s also about the courage to let go of all other options.

Each path we choose comes with its own set of opportunities and limitations, and sometimes we must let go of certain possibilities in order to pursue others. It’s about prioritizing what matters most to us at any given moment and accepting that we can’t have it all. This can be a challenging aspect of life, but it’s also what makes our choices meaningful and allows us to focus our efforts on what we value most.

Brida – The Choice of Missing out other Choices, the Book was a reminder for me that life is full of choices, and with each choice comes the acceptance of missing out on other possibilities.

In life, something or the other will be missed and that is an absolute answer to all our existential questions in life.
