Some people are fearful of making the “wrong” decision, so they procrastinate and put off making a decision - on whatever it might be. "Should I keep this food processor that we haven't used in two years? I don’t know, maybe I’ll use it someday, I'll think about it," (and back it goes onto the kitchen counter) or "Will I ever wear this formal gown again? Maybe? Or maybe I should consign it? I don’t know," (and back it goes into the closet). All of that indecision can lead to paralysis, and all of those decisions pile up, literally and figuratively.
I read a quote the other day that really resonated with me. It gives a beautiful perspective as to how to view decision-making:
“You can’t see the future, so you’ll never know you’ve made a right decision until you make it. Use everything you have been taught, do the best you can do, then walk into your life and into your moment. You’ll know it’s the right decision based on the consequences. Regardless, it will all be fine. Just never lose sight of who you are.” - Michelle Brewington
So the next time you’re grappling with a decision, instead of putting it off, trust that you’ll make the best decision with the information you currently have, and know you cannot go wrong. Trust yourself and trust the universe.
