All of life boils down to decisions. Think about it!
We choose to play, or not. We choose to be educated, or not. We choose to work, or not. We choose to love, or not…..
It’s all about choices. If we go right back to basics, success in life depends very much on our ability to make a good decision. It’s a scary, but true, fact that the course of a life can be changed by a simple decision.
So how do we go about making these decisions? Some people consult with a Higher Power, they pray. Others leave it all to the flip of a coin. Some go with “gut instinct”. When I am faced with a really big, life changing type of decision I have been known to take no chances and rely on all three of the above!
What if we make a wrong decision? I’ve had many, many “What was I thinking??” moments. What I have come to realise (and it’s taken me a looong time to figure this out) is that a bad decision doesn’t make me a bad person. Most mistakes can be seen as stepping-stones, or as opportunities for growth, or at the very least, they can be filed away as lessons learnt.
Striving for perfection can be like chasing rainbows. I’ve given up on being so hard on myself, now I aim simply to do the best that I can with the opportunities I have.
