You Made the Decision, Now Move On

A few years back my husband and I had to make a difficult decision regarding the care of someone very close to us. After we settled on what we felt was the best decision, we later wondered if we did the right thing.

During that time, someone told us, “never beat yourself up for making a decision that at the time you felt was the best decision”.

I sometimes repeat those words to reassure myself when doubt tries to creep in.

There were decisions I made even this past week that I later questioned. But, I told myself I made the best decision with the information I had in that moment.

After that, all I can do is trust God’s word that says, “ALL things work together for good to them that love God” Romans 8:28.

I can honestly say any decision I initially questioned, worked out on my behalf in the long run. Maybe not always the way I thought it would, but it worked out.

If you are beating yourself up over a decision you made, STOP!

It’s done.

Time to move on.

If it’s in your power to change the outcome, then do so. If not, focus your efforts, time and energy on what you can control. Trust God to handle the rest.

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!

“I Would Rather Try and Fail Than Fail to Try”

I know of a lady who for 29 years, said she was going to pursue a dream. Finally, right before the 30th year she found the courage to do it.

It didn’t turn out as big as she had imagined, but I’m proud of her that she finally did it.

What have you thought about doing, but have not done?

How long will you allow “This year,” to turn into “Next year,” to turn into NEVER?

How long will you hold yourself back?

How long will you allow fear and self doubt to keep you stuck in a place you don’t want to be, and away from the place you want to be?

How long will you sit on the sidelines and watch others pursue their dreams?

How long will you say you can’t? “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” ~Henry Ford

How long will you say it will take too long? “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” ~ Earl Nightingale

It’s up to you to conquer your fears and quiet the self doubt in your mind.

Yes, you could fail. But, you also could succeed. Or, you can learn from it and try again.

It’s NEVER too late to start!

What ONE THING can you do TODAY to move a step closer towards your dream, or a desire you have?

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!
