Does it matter which path you choose?
As soon as we waken up we have decisions to make. We choose our mood, then when to get out of bed, what to wear, what to eat, when to leave… So many choices and decisions that you would think that we should feel like experts in decision making, but we often come to cross roads in life all of a sudden decision making becomes a challenge.
Does it really matter what choice you make?
There is a thought process in the world that it doesn’t matter what choice you make, whatever is meant for you will come to you, the only difference with choice is the path you are on to take you there.
Depending on your beliefs it could be God that decides, or fate, or the universe, or some other belief system.
If that is the case, then why do we still find it so hard to make a decision? Is the decision to be indecisive actually slowing you down from reaching your destiny? If it is a 2 way decision would a coin toss help? If it is multiple choice, writing them on individual pieces of paper and drawing a decision out a hat could be the way forward?
Stalling making decisions can cause a whole lot of unnecessary stress, and we waste a lot of energy in the process.
The thing to remember is we never know if the other decision would have turned out better or not, unless of course you have a time machine that lets you go back, try the other path, if it sucks then go back and stick with the original plan…
For the rest of the week think a bit less over decisions, try taking a few breaths, quiet the head, think briefly about your choices and look for physical signs to help you make the decision. They talk about ‘gut feeling’ that is what you are trying to tune in to.
The more you practice this, the more in tune you will get, the easier it will get to make decisions and trust your intuition.
Make the decision, go with it and have faith in your belief (if you have one) that whoever or whatever your spiritual leader is will get you to where you need to be.
