You lay it out on the table and look at it from all angles.

You look at the choices you can make.

You weigh the pros – You weigh the cons.

Both might be very heavy.

Both might be very hard.

But, at the end of the day, you have to make a decision.


Every time I have to make a conflicting decision, I can’t help but think that I could’ve done better.

That I could’ve made a different conclusion.


And maybe I could have.

But once you get to the point where you make a decision in your life, it’s time to start moving.

I find myself staying put and mulling over decisions, whether big or small, constantly.


I know that I need to trust myself and continue to move forward.

The decision I made was for a reason.

I decided, so I now move forward.


Lately, I’ve had to make a lot of decisions and I am definitely thinking a lot.


But, I’m reminding myself to continue to move forward.


I owe it to myself to be firm in what I feel and to trust my feelings.

For any of you mulling over a decision in your life, remind yourself of these things:

  • What feels right is probably right. Your feelings matter, and although that choice may be much harder, it’s like ripping off the bandaid. It will hurt – but you know it is likely for the best.
  • Trust yourself. You aren’t stupid – you aren’t crazy. You know yourself better than anyone, so you can sit back and know that the decision you made was well-informed by the person who knows you best: You.
  • Be patient. Time moves slowly when you want it to move quickly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t move, too.
  • Keep moving.


I want my words to be good.

I want my actions to be good.

I want my decisions I make to be good.


And at the end of the day, I may not be right, but I am doing my best.

And for me, that’s all I can do.

And that’s okay.


“I ain’t gonna promise that the pain will go away,
And you can take your sweet time, but she ain’t gonna wait,
‘Cause a new coat of paint don’t make the stain go away.”


One thought on “Decisions.

  1. Good Morning, good perspective  I like to challenge  myself to see where the lord is taking me, what would he like to accomplish in me, what is his decision and plan for me. I pray for those decisions to come from him and wait on him to move but sometimes i dont know, like you say here, you have to move, he will guide you in his will and manipulate things along the way to keep us on the track he needs us on and if not spank us when we get going too far in one direction and miss HIS journey for us.  I find it easier in those times to not beat myself up when i truly seek his will and try to god in his direction vs my own. I hope as you live in your decisions you feel his presence, you feel him leading you and you know his plan is best.  I love you, i hope your day is filled with steps that he is guiding, Dad
