Making Decisions Is A Good Thing

Recently my wife and I made a big decision: we decided we are not moving. The main reason this was a big decision for us was because, for the past 5 months, we had been operating under the assumption that we were moving. Those 5 months were full of not knowing what was coming next. Where were we going to live? When were we moving? Who was going to rent our house? Where were we going to work? All really important questions to have answers for.

So after many conversations, much prayer, and too many arguments we decided to stay. And let me tell you, making that decision felt INCREDIBLE! I felt like myself again for the first time in months. At the risk of being too dramatic, it felt like the clouds parted and the sun came out.

My desire to live in the city still remains but I am at peace with the decision we made because my wife and I made it together and I think we made it for the right reasons. Instead of having to answer all of those questions mentioned earlier, we now only have to answer one: Where am I going to work?

I'm confident we can find a good answer to that question here. I'm also very happy that this is the only question from that list that we have to answer now.

Making decisions, I've found, makes me happier. I've got enough going on in my life to leave things undecided. Let me encourage you to do the same and make decisions on the undecided things in your life. I think you'll appreciate the focus you gain from doing so.
