Every day is an adventure. We are faced with literally thousands of decisions during each trip around the sun. The toughest part of making most decisions is going with our heart, while using our brain.
Often it’s not necessarily the morality of a choice, but rather the practicality of a decision that can weigh heaviest on us. Yes, you may LOVE how that new handbag would look with your new shoes or eating double quarter pounders, but are either really the best way to enhance your life?
You may still be angry with what someone said or did in the past, but think about your actions and reactions before you and your hurt heart go running your mouth. Adding negative words to a bad situation only compounds the pain.
There are career and social opportunities that may present themselves to you. Be aware of the risks and reliability of those newly opened doors. Make sure you really want and need to take that step.
I’m not saying to sit back and let life pass you by, but it is always a good idea to let common sense and experience play a role in your decision making process.
Put energy into making positive decisions and I am certain your decision making process will become easier.
