To go, or not to go

Heads Or Tails

Welcome to the September 1st edition of Heads Or Tails!
- HoT Week #104 -

TAILS - "Decision"

Letting go is the hardest decision of all. At least, for me. I have to break my habits and routine. I have to get out of the comfort zone that I made of the relationship. I have to make changes.

I always think with my heart and act with my head, and base all my decisions on that premise. My friends say I'm a bit slow in deciding things, but that's the way I am. I mull every scenario in my head, turn it every which way to check every option, and get a "contingency" plan, because if I really decide to do something, there's no turning back. And sometimes friends and family hate me for it, the "no-taking-it-back" attitude. I've had my share of bad decisions, hard decisions, foolish ones too. But I just take everything in stride, cry, pick myself up and move on...

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
-- Yogi Berra
1925-, American Baseball Player

We are given one life, and the decision is our whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live.
-- Omar Nelson Bradley
1893-1981, American General

Deliberate with caution, but act with decision; and yield with graciousness or oppose with firmness.
-- Charles Caleb Colton
1780-1832, British Sportsman Writer

Interesting thoughts on decision making. I somehow never get to the contingency plan, it's all very sink or swim with me, guess it's a good thing I'm a great swimmer.

Excellent thoughts...and great post. I for one take a while to make SOME decisions, and others I will contemplate for YEARS at a time all depends.

It is better to take things slowly instead of regrets.

It is so hard to follow through, but your determined attitude likely serves you well, rather than regretting things later. Great advice.
