Are you the type of person when asked a question can answer it right away? I don’t mean would you like to eat Italian food or Chinese food for dinner? I mean when you are asked a question that will impact your life, your family, or your future. Do you answer right away? Or do you overthink everything? I am guilty of overthinking the smallest decisions that some people make in a heartbeat.
I have been faced with many decisions to make in my life. The hardest decisions were with Sydney, autism, and epilepsy. I had to make decisions about tests, surgical procedures, medications, treatments and schools. When asked these questions I wish I could just give an immediate response. Not me, I have to overthink it.
I have said before to go in your prayer closet to pray and feel confident about your decision. But, I also would like to think that I am wise enough to make a decision boldly when first asked. When faced with a decision I can’t answer right away. I need to create lists, graphic organizers, do my research and flip a coin.
I need to take charge, make a decision and be at peace. The next time I have a decision to make, I will go with my gut instinct and not make the decision harder than it has to be. I will see how this works Tuesday, when I have to make an important decision.
