When we are faced with making a decision regarding any matter in our lives, it is up to us to DECIDE which would serve us better and/or enhance our life. This could be anything from your career, relationships, personal well-being, health or where you live.
When we are unable to decide it creates an imbalance within us, which in turn causes us stress and anxiety. It could also cause temporary feelings of unhappiness. It is inevitable that we are going to have ups and downs from time to time, however it is important to decide on what will make you happy, even if in the long run, so you can continue living a less distracted life. When you decide which way to go, the imbalance subsides and life automatically smooths itself out, leaving you with a more calm, settled, peaceful, and happy feeling.
Some decisions are going to be more difficult than others, but don’t use their difficulty as an excuse to put it off. The most assured way to decide on what would be more fulfilling, is to think about each possibility and then see how it makes you feel, weighing both pros and cons. One or the other is going to make you feel better than the other. If not, than look a little deeper until there is some remnant of a spark within one or the other.
There may also be times when what you need to decide on is not something you want no matter how you look at it. In this case, find as many positive aspects of it and remember you are the creator of your reality so this too can change. Nothing has to remain the same unless you choose for it to.
Decide what you are going to do and DO IT! Don’t talk about doing it, just do it. Not only will you be emptying your “to do” list, but you will also be fine tuning your connection to your Inner Life because you will be letting go of the stress and anxiety associated with living in indecision.
If you want to lose weight, decide to do so and do it. If you want a career change, decide what you want to do, and do it. If your relationships are unhealthy, decide to end them, and then do it. If you want to totally change your life, decide to do it and do it. And most important, if you are not being you, DECIDE to be yourself and leave the rest behind!
