You have all these options laid out in front of you, and yet you’re not satisfied.

 

Sky’s the limit for all the possibilities you can do, and yet just the thought of it stresses you out.

 

All these choices, and yet… you’re sad.

 

Why is that?

 

Why is it that whenever we are presented with choices, we somehow cower in fear? Why is it that with all these choices, we take days, even weeks, to decide and once it’s time, a doubt creeps up and we have to delay the decision again?

 

A simple yes or no is already hard to choose from so why do we always have this need to include the maybe’s, what-ifs, and but’s?

 

Is it because we are scared of the outcome? Or is it because the choices aren’t enough?

 

Or is it because we were used to be presented with so much that we think when we eliminate all the other choices, we lose something beneficial? Some what if’s and what could have’s?

 

You do know that through that way of thinking, you will never know what’s good for you, right?

 

You need to make a decision for you to grow and move forward. You make wrong choices but at least you know not to repeat them again. You make the right choices and at least you know what is best and what works for you.

 

If you’re presented with endless choices, then just pick the first three your gut tells you to choose. And whether we want to admit it or not, we already know what is the best choice.

 

Yet we come up with all these reasons, all these excuses, to convince ourselves to go search for other options when it’s already right in front of you.

 

Change that mindset.

 

Be firm. Trust yourself. Find the good in what you’re blessed with. Instead of stressing yourself to think out of the box, why not just increase the size of your box?

 

If something goes wrong, cry. After you’ve dried your tears, wear your armor again. Just know that your “losses” could have been a source to an even greater problem.

 

Learn when to stop searching and when to finally settle on something.

 

 

Making a decision is scary, I absolutely know that, but what’s scarier is letting all these chances—all these blessings—slip through your fingers.
