for the weekend


One of the blessings (and curses) of life... is that you never know what is going to happen next.
There are just too many variables.
(I know, I've been married to a math/science geek for far too long >>wink<<)

You are walking down a familiar path... and the next thing you know... there is a fork in the road.
A choice must be made.

The old adage "you know when you know"... seems to taunt you.
How do you know?
Sometimes you just have to make a decision, to just do... anything.
And the only way to know what to do and that it's right for you? ... well, there is no true answer; except to trust.
Don't worry. Try not to feel anxious. Try not to second-guess.
Breathe.
Go beyond the worry and the hesitation.
Don't over-think.... or feel like you have to control every possible outcome.
It's impossible.

I once was reading the biography of the psychic Sylvia Brown; and was fascinated that she was saying that she was psychic about so many things; in and around the lives of others.... but never for herself. And isn't that true? Sometimes you can see so clearly other people's situations... but never your own. Sometimes, you simply have to "trust your gut"... your inner voice... and leap out in faith...

What impossible choices are you having to make this week?

"Our lives are different from anybody else's. That's the exciting thing.
Nobody in the Universe can do what we're doing."
