Tough Decisions

Tough decisions are the ones we dread the most and often shy away from.

They are the ones that force us to step out of your comfort zone.

They are the ones that push us to dig deeper to find clarity and direction.

They sometimes entail sacrificing one thing for another but in the end they help us to develop and grow not only in experience and knowledge but wisdom.

Tough decisions although tough at times test our character, judgement, values and relationships not only with others but ourselves.

What tough decision have you been avoiding?

Take time to think it through – a decision has to be made either way or someone else would make it for you.

Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you Mr. Mel! Avoidance can really make things more challenging. In decision making sometimes it’s not always as easy as we like because there are always other variables to take into consideration. I’ve also found that sometimes we can over analyze so much that we think ourselves right out of making a decision. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚ Have a great night!

  2. Thanks for reading and commenting. You’re so right in saying food is a ‘big one”. I have my own challenges from time to time with food but I’ve learnt food is not my enemy and I need to try to strive for greater control over my cravings for foods that if consumed in excess are not good for me. It is so easy to get carried away and lose control. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks for reading Maggie! Going to the dentist office is always a tough one for most of us but sometimes we just have to go and get the care we need. I trust that you would do what is necessary before it becomes a problem. Take care of that beautiful smile! πŸ™‚

  4. As you’ve implied, it’s generally easier to stay in our comfort zone than confront difficult truths or decisions. The toughest choices tend to involve choosing long-term health and happiness over short-term pleasure. Food is a big one here! It gets easier and easier though, every time we do it. πŸ™‚

  5. I need to get my wisdom teeth out so I can get braces, but I don’t think I’m emotionally ready yet. It’s definitely a big decision, so I’m looking at waiting until I’m more okay with the idea, and/or I’m suddenly in pain because of them. The day will come πŸ™‚ Very inspirational post, Cherylene!
