Making Decisions

Do not plant your dreams in the field of indecision where nothing else grows but the weeds of “what-if”

How do you make decision? Or how do you make the right decisions? How do you know you have made the right choice and that which you chose you’ll responsible for the outcomes?

You can’t know for certain the outcome of all your decisions; you can’t guarantee the result you always hope for.

Whichever area you have to decide; your job, your career, or deciding what to choose from the menu, this often require some form of both intuition and reasoning.

Your heart may be telling you something different and your head is thinking towards another path. You begin to worry about the pros and cons of the decision and the consequences.

Over thinking itself can then lead to another round of confusion or obscure what you instinctively feel is right.

What to do?

Mindfulness can help you make decisions in a way that balances your emotional reactions with your logical responses. It will help you acknowledge and accept uncertainty, making a choice despite possible unknowns.

*Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.

Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
