Lately, decisions have been on my mind. And just how simple some of the most important decisions of my life have been.
Sure, there have been some hard ones, too. I only decided where I went to college after months of agonizing and fighting with my parents. They wanted me to go to a smaller school; I wanted to go where my friend was going. The decision took forever to make and 5 years later, I consider it one of the best decisions I’ve made.
But then there are those that take 5 minutes but can change your life forever. Decisions like where to have dinner or whether to have drinks after work.
See, I wouldn’t have met DD had I not agreed to go to a Happy Hour one night. Something so simple that, had I changed my mind or chickened out (as I was close to doing), would have landed me in a very different place today. You never really think that having a cocktail is going to change your life. Sure, I knew I was meeting a guy, but I had no idea it was going to go where it has.
That’s the thing about decisions. You just never know how they’ll turn out.
What are some of the biggest simple decisions you’ve made?
