Decisions, Decisions…

Each moment of our lives is a decision, propelling from a previous decision.
Do I hit the snooze? Do I jump up? Do I make the coffee or take a shower, first?  You see, it’s ongoing. Even during sleep we slightly consciously decide to turn over, move the pillow, or kick off the blanket.

I wonder, if I’d gotten up at the first sound of my alarm this morning, would my chores be complete? Would I have bumped into a friend at the farmer market? Had a different vibe, to invite a phone call or message? Most likely, not. Tomorrow, I might wonder the same. What will I decide?

Ahh, the big decisions. No, not what to have for lunch. Decisions like who to befriend, where to work, what direction to point the compass of my life.

Friendships have a way of bringing people up or dragging us down. They impact our daily lives more than we might consider. When making decisions about activities or again about what geographical direction to work or live. I've moved toward friends, that weren't, in the long run. I've considered employment in the direction of friends’ homes or places of business, in order to get together at lunch or after work. 

Lately I've been reevaluating my friendships and where I live. If I move, some will be left on the side, as they should. Will it make a difference in my feeling stagnant? If I stay put, will I continue to feel brought down because of a ridiculous feeling of loyal “time-sharing”?

    1. Thanks for your comment. Good luck with your decisions. I will follow your blog. I've been having a tech glitch preventing me from following anyone. I'll certainly keep trying and wish for a speedy solution.

  2. I thought I would pop back and say hello. Nice to connect and follow on

  3. Much truth in this post. Every decision results in a consequence and more decisions. It helps when we make the right decisions.

  4. Change is often a good thing. As Lee says, there is much truth here, and everything we do has consequences. That doesn't mean we shouldn't do some things. Integrity often expects and demands us to do what's right, even if it's difficult. You have to go with your gut, being truthful with yourself and honestly doing what's right in your heart. In the end, you're the only one you have to answer to, so you might as well sleep better at night and be able to look at yourself in the mirror.
