Have you ever lost sleep over a decision you have to
Spending hours lying awake, staring at the ceiling, watching hours tick by while the world around you is
Well, I have.
I struggled with making choices too.
I remembered vividly the couple of years leading up
to my decision to leave a monthly paid job.
It was the toughest decision of my life. I hesitated. I delayed. I struggled.
Looking back today, I was certain that my choice was
a good one.
I had many years of a fulfilling second career. I became relatively well paid too through the years, which I would not have thought of while I was younger.
Do I know for sure, what will come my way then as I do now?
It was just a choice that I have to make.
A lot of the decision making we do in our lives centred around this: is it a right or wrong answer?
In school, we were conditioned to expect a reward for a right answer and punishment for a wrong one.
When we grow up, we begin to think of the world in two polars. There must be a right or a wrong choice.
However, this is life. No one is ever born with the experience to live it out and live it well.
Fate plays a part in the paths we take, the people we
meet and the spouse we marry.
No one could ever predict if it is a right answer or a wrong one. Whichever path we choose, there are advantages and disadvantages.
No one solution is perfect, just only the best fit for our requirements. Each choice takes us on a different experience.
The most liberating thing that frees my mind and one that I remind myself and all that come on my way often is that there is no right or wrong answer.
Just make a choice and move on.
I hope it solves your sleepless nights.
Let me know how it goes.
Each day, I see that I am closer to my dreams. I expect them to come true because I have total confidence that I can make them happen.
When I believe in myself and my abilities, I radiate that out to the universe. I get back good vibes and good feelings from the universe because I am giving out joy and confidence.
I hold fast to the promises I make to myself. When I believe in myself, I see good things happen in my life. As a result, all of my dreams are coming true. Because I believe in me, other people believe in me, too. I have positive energy.
By remaining positive, I offer the universe my love and respect. Positive energy attracts positive energy, so I help my dreams come true by continuing to believe in them. I refuse to give up on my dreams because they matter to me.
I care about my dreams and see them come true. I visualize how they can come true and what I can do to ensure they happen. If I have to adjust my timetable or the extent of my dreams, I am flexible enough to do so.
Because I can be flexible, my dreams come true more easily. I go with the flow, and I am confident that allowing the universe to guide me can help make my dreams a reality much more easily.
Today, I reflect on the fact that I am moving ever closer to seeing my dreams become my reality and rejoice in it.
But sometimes if you put all of your energy outwards, you forget to care, appreciate and nurture the most important person of all - YOU!
