When You Can't Decide

You've asked good questions.
You've sought outside expertise.
You know what's right from what's wrong.

You know what is best for you.
Then, take action.

  1. Hi Alyson,
    Mike Dooley who writes Notes from the Universe says,”we’re here for such a short time. One minute you’re here, and the next you’re gone. So you’ve got nothing, nothing to lose.” I love that quote. Decide as you say, because what have you got to lose. This post, and Mike’s idea are very empowering.
    Thanks for this.
    XO Barbara

    When I get stuck, I remind myself that we all take our best guess, since we are not omniscient. I do not have to know the future, just consider the things you mention here.
