You'll make it; definitely. We all come upon crossroads in our lives, it's unavoidable but with the glory and help of the Lord, you will be able to identify which road you'll be taking.

You know the drill: do the pros and the cons for each and make a decision.

That's the easy part. The hard part is that it is not always so simple.

My overriding goal in making any decision is "Is it the best decision?"

Sometimes that is easy to tell, other times it does not really matter ("should I wear the blue sweater or the brown?"), and other times it is hard because there are a number of factors to weigh.

In my own case, working (commuting, sitting in an office, doing work) does not make me a very happy person. In fact, after the end of the day the very last thing I want to do is interact with people. I am definitely cranky. The job is really immaterial, it is the amount of time that work sucks from my life that kills me.

I could quit, but then what? My family has to eat, have a place to live. I could be a consultant or freelancer, but I am an introvert and not a people person. My networking skills are pretty much zero.

I suppose I could make a decision. I do, I keep working and keep hoping that I will find a resolution to my dilemma. I choose to work because it seems to cause the least amount of harm, conversely, it does the most good - though, I cannot imagine that being cranky in the long term is good for my marriage or kids.

I don’t know what is up in your life. I don’t know your situation or circumstances. However, I will say, that whatever decision you take, whatever path you choose to follow make sure that it is one that glorifies both you and the people around you. That it makes you and those around you better people.

Take care.

go where your heart tells you to go...but be prepared though for things to come...it could be beautiful or otherwise, but at least when you look back one day, you'll have no regrets coz you've done it...

life could be difficult, a lot of us stumble and when it happens rise up immediately...life is beautiful =)

hugs

Wow! A state of indecision well illustrated. Follow where your heart leads. :)

Hi sister V,

If you still don't know which way to go, then just don't make a choice! Take a long vacation and relax... Just remember that the most important person in yourlife is no other than YOU, my dear!

Hi Vina! The balance with the heart and mind is a must in making decisions. Too much heart is to follow what your emotions dictate; too much mind is to follow logic that tends to be irrational sometimes. Choose your path wisely.=D

Hi sister V,

Cheer up! Just think that you are lucky you are the ONE making choices.

Some people like anonymous above don't have that much choices but just to hide in their anonymity!

Drinks to this :)

even if " the first cut is the deepest" (cheryl crow),
time eventually heals all wounds
and someday you'll laugh at this one too
I just hope that "someday" arrives tomorrow

Hi Vina. I don't know what you're going through, but my two cents says follow your heart. Sometimes our hearts know instinctively what to do. We just have to listen then follow. Look inside.
