How To Decide...

Time moves quickly and if we don't strike while the iron's hot, opportunities pass us by...or do they? Although decisions do have to be made, unforeseen problems can arise when decisions are made in haste. Unfortunately for us, there is no app to signify when it's time to break up with a significant other or for when to quit a job, which means we're left to our own devices, making pro/con lists and getting advice from friends.

If you're feeling angst about a decision, hemming and hawing about what to do, daydreaming about it or losing sleep, it might be time to try something new. Ask yourself this question: what if I gave myself permission NOT to think about this decision? Don't get me wrong, if your house is burning down or you're in an abusive relationship then by all means get out NOW. However, there are times decisions require more information; a lesson to be learned, a different perspective - something that may only be revealed if you free your mind.

"If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present." -Laozi.

Therefore, may we all be in peace.
