Hey y’all, welcome to Love Tidbits, episode #29: Make 1 Decision
Growing up, remember when you learned that you just needed to make a decision, to not take drugs or to not smoke. So when you make that one decision, if things came up later on and you were at a party or you were offered drugs or a cigarette, you’d be like, wait, no, I already made the decision. So I’m not going to do that.
This is something similar to that. You make one decision. Now often we have a hard time making decisions, and we spin in confusion, and we ask everyone else what they think that we should do. And we see what social media is doing. And all this procrastinating is happening in trying to make a decision.
And you know, indecision is a decision. So what if we stopped this hamster wheel that we have going on, and we simply make one decision? Oprah says, “Nothing happens until you decide, make a decision and watch your life move forward.”
Now this doesn’t have to be a big thing. I’m not talking about a super big decision that you want to spend a lot of time on. I’m simply talking about making a decision. Which big decisions you don’t have to spend a lot of time on, just a little side note there. But what about just deciding something, anything? Sending a text, smiling at two people, drinking some water, being outside, whatever you want, make the decision and do it.
Sometimes you make one decision, and then you’re not going to want to do it. For example, in my business, I made the decision to make some videos. And I don’t necessarily love that, but I know it helps me grow my business. So I know that I’m not going to want to do it. I put it on my calendar. I know it’s coming and at the time, I’m like no I don’t want to do that. I made a decision to make a video, but now I don’t want to.
Well part of making one decision, is doing it anyway. Even when you don’t want to do it. It’s a skill. As we practice making one decision and doing it, we get better and better at honoring our decisions. So we’re building the skill of making a decision, and following through with it.
So let’s make one decision, something you’ll do no matter what. Something that when you’re questioning it, you know that the decision is already made and you don’t need to decide again. Even if you don’t want to, you do it anyway.
I love the quote, “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take and the decisions we waited to make.” (by Lewis Carroll) Hmmm, something to think about.
Have a good one y’all ~ and here’s to making 1 decision and love.
