Decisions

Friday, January 06, 2006


I hate to make them. Especially hard ones. I much prefer for things to play out as they will; without me having to make any decision about an outcome at all. That way if things don't work out, I can't blame myself. I had to make a hard decision. It may be wrong, I don't know. Ask me in ten years.

Many of the events in my life have unfolded, without me having to make a big decision. Or when I did need to make one, I had such conviction about the correct path, that there was no turmoil. I rarely sit on the fence. When the balance is even, I can not decide. So I did and now the balance has tipped.

Let's Make a Deal. Would you like to take the prize I am offering you or go for what's behind door #2? Could be much better or you could end up with a donkey...

    This one sounds serious. Usually I am a big decision maker except when it involves someone's feelings. Then I fall apart.

    I guess you just have to have confidence in yourself that you are a good person and you are doing your best and that is all anyone can ask of you. Bottom line is take care of yourself cause you are worth it!

    Hang in there.

    Connie;
    It is so nice, so reassuring to have friends like you here to speak these words. It is nothing too serious, in the scheme of things. I am sure that I will eventually blog about it all, and it will sound silly.
    You have a great weekend!

    I'm not a gambling type of person. I usually prefer the prize that I can see.

    I also dislike making decisions......sometimes it is required.

    I think if you trust yourself and do what you feel is best then the outcome is what is ment to be.

    Good luck

    I occasionaly gamble but it all depends on what the outcomes all round are.
    I would write down all the pros and cons for each outcome and seriously think about what you want to occur, then discuss with Mr C and go from there.
    Best of luck :)

    I'm the worst person to ask when it comes to decision making, but I usually tend to go with intuition rather than reason. If I get a stomach ache thinking about something, it means it's wrong for me.

    Good luck in choosing the right path...

    I'm no good at making decisions either. Even the simpler things are sometimes very hard for me. Usually I end up following what I feel is right and I'm not a person of regrest, fortunately.
    You've made at least one great decision: the blue on your blog is wonderful and the clouds are breathtaking. I love it :)

    i very seldom make conscious decisions. i either act impulsively or say to myself "let's do this now but we can change our mind later". So it doesn't feel like a big decision and it doesn't scare me.
    I am sure you have made the right decision. And if not, which is highly impossible, you can change your mind later. When my mother changes her mind and people ask her why she did that, she replies "my mind is made of thoughts not of concrete".

    Angel;
    The problem with this decision was the fact that we do not know which route will lead to the "prize".

    Kylee;
    Welcome and thanks for your comments. We are trusting that we have made the right decision.

    Michelle;
    We did the pros and cons thing; so this is how our mind was made up.

    Christina;
    The stomach ache thing was happening, that's for sure. So it helped in the end to make the decision.

    Devil Mood;
    Thanks for stopping by; I know you are one of Chloe's friends, and therefore one of mine as well. Thanks for the comments on the colours. They seemed nice and cool and refreshing to me; a good fresh start to the New Year.

    Chloe;
    Oh, I am sure I am quite capable of making wrong decisions. This one is as right as it can be for us now, but it can be chanaged in the future. You have this way of just knowing me, I am and will forever be astonished by this; as if you were inside my head sometimes. Your mother's saying is perfect for this situation.
    Love to you this Saturday night.
    Cathy
