Decisions, Decisions ...

How do we ever really know when we make the right ones?

I think I'm going out of my mind. I've been having second thoughts about taking the job I accepted. I had a bit of a meltdown yesterday afternoon thinking that this time next week I'll be back to the daily grind. I know I have to go back but I don't know if I should take advantage of the time remaining to look for something better. I won't have another opportunity to have this kind of time off until I retire (unless I hit the lottery).

I also can't help but feel a bit guilty as well because there are so many people out of work that would jump at the chance to take this opportunity and the others I have turned down but I can't help how I feel. Help! I just don't know what to do.

I'm heading out to my kickboxing class and plan to stay for yoga as well. I'm hoping after two hours of all those endorphins surging through me the right decision will be clear so I can be at peace with it, whatever it is. Maybe I should just leave it to fate and flip a coin.

How do you know when you are making the right decision?


  1. I hate when I have "buyer's remorse" on something like that. Big decisions are so hard! I hope it all works out the way it should for you.

  2. I'm kind of going through the same thing, except I'm wondering if I should find a different job. The job I have is secure, decent pay, great benefits, I sort of come and go as I please, which is all great, exept that it's sucking the life out of me. I sit behind a desk and do the same boring routine day in and day out, so much so that I just want to scream!! But then I feel guilty because I think there's someone out there who would give their left arm for this job. Am I just an ungrateful wench or is it really time to move on? It would be so great if there was a neon sign that appeared above our heads that told us exactly what we should do, huh?

  3. I Know I have made the right choice when I have a sense of peace about it.

    I'm Tami and I have a healthy living blog. I have been a long time WW member and recently gained back a few pounds.

    I decided to get a group of bloggers and others together and host a Small Change Challenge to kick off Summer in a healthy way!

    Stop by and read about it and see if it is something you would like to join. The more people who join the more positive energy we will create!
