Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
We can’t predict the future. And so we can choose to live in fear of it, or in acceptance. Not placid acceptance. Rather, informed acceptance and understanding.
Every decision we make isn’t going to be the right one. Probably some absurd percentage (like 90%) of our decisions could be considered “wrong.” But why wrong? Wrong because it didn’t work out the way you thought? I refuse to live in fear of wrong decisions. The fear is there, but I can choose to act anyways. I can choose to make a decision. And whatever the consequences of that choice, I accept. I accept with understanding and acknowledgment that Time (and life) never stops… it just changes direction, and has the ability to surprise us. Which truth be told, is pretty damn exciting.
Rewinding a little bit: I must say that living in that limbo of indecisioness is someplace I’ve been. And been recently. And its dark, and twisty, and confusing, and tricky. It tried to convince me that decision was bad, it was going to be painful, it was going to be WRONG, and therefore, not making any decision was better.
Well EFF that. In the land of indecision progress is on hold. Growth is nonexistent and potentially actually backwards. You don’t wake up everyday looking at the great new things the future holds, you wake up dreading what isn’t happening… and you think about it on repeat like a broken record.
So I made a decision. It wasn’t the one I wanted to make (imagine that!), it was just the only one I was able to make at the time. So it wasn’t right, but making it still enabled me to make progress… and make a better decision the next time… More progress.
