It amazes me how quickly we can forget about the good things in life that keep us moving. We tend to focus on the negative side of things; what’s lacking and what we *want* instead of what we already have.
Last night I asked my boyfriend, “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” To which he replied, “Time travel.” He said that it would be kind of cool to know what the future holds and that it would help us make difficult decisions in the present.
There are plenty of ways to make difficult decisions… but that doesn’t mean they are easy. Here are some tips on making it a little easier:
Try to remember that you may not like their answers, but they truly care about you and want what is best for you.
This will allow you to see the pros and cons of each decision next to each other and make it easier to weigh them out.
Think about what the decisions entail and how they will affect your life. Be honest with yourself when answering them! Some questions to ask include:
Will this make me happy?
How will this affect my family?
Will they be happy?
If you’re still having a difficult time it could mean that the change you’re considering isn’t a good idea after all. Our gut instinct tends to kick in with these kinds of things and it’s important to learn to listen to them!
