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.

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.”
