There are seasons of your life where you are plagued with so many life decisions and struggles to the point where you have to ask yourself, “How did I end up here??”
Sometimes making life decisions can be scary because of the implications and impact they may have not only on your own life, but in the lives of those around you, such as your mate or your children, or even other family members and friends.
You ask yourself should you go left? Should you go right? Should you move forward or remain exactly where you are. Decisions are all around and you feel as if you are trapped right in the middle.
I am not going to lie—sometimes the decisions that have to be made in life can get real heavy. And I am not going to say ‘keep an upbeat and happy attitude through it all’ because sometimes it is just not that simple. What I am going to say is to be sure to create moments for yourself to break away from the chaos from time to time to gain peace and to clear your mind. Sometimes a “beautiful distraction” is the very thing that will help re-stabilize your well-being and put things back into focus so that you won’t make the wrong decisions or worse, breakdown and lose it.
Mistakes in life decisions can, will, and do happen. However find encouragement in knowing that when mistakes are made in decisions that result in your life falling off course, your inner instinct will always lead you back to your proper path. All you have to do is stay mentally, emotionally, and spiritually balanced along the journey; and learn something along the way that will help you decide more wisely in the future.
There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience, and that is not learning from experience.

DjRelAt7 latest inspiration..Do you often think about doing something for others?
Greetings DjRelAt7! I am so glad that you enjoyed this week’s selection! Yes you are so right about life–and it is something that I have to remind myself of often–that in this journey, there’s going to be lots….and lots of decisions to be made–some right, some wrong–but in the end it all makes us who we are, and in the end–as long as we keep on believing–things do get better. ~Thank you so much for sharing here with me!
