I’ve been feeling lighter recently. I don’t mean physically, because I haven’t been exercising as I should be, but that’s another story.
I feel lighter because I finally have come to grips with what I am and what I want to do.
I documented in my website post Embrace the Wanderlust in Your Brain that I want to be and do many things. I want to be more than a web designer or an IT guy. I want to do it all.
Since I made that decision and publicly stated it, I have felt much more at ease with myself and lighthearted overall. The burden of indecision was lifted off of me.
I have no idea how any of these ventures are going to turn out. They could be big successes or big failures, but I will feel better having failed at something I want to do than I would if I hadn’t tried.
When we have a decision to make, we analyze, go over the possibilities, pros and cons, and then we analyze more. This leads to a vicious circle that can weigh us down. It weighs on our mind which can affect our work, our sleep, and everything else.
It’s a good thing to go over our options and try to figure out which is the best decision for us, but there comes a time when we actually have to make that decision and go with it. It’s not easy, but what is even harder than living with a decision that we have made is living with a decision that we haven’t made.
If the weight on indecision is playing heavily on your mind and your heart, make a decision. Don’t let fear stop you from doing something that you want to do.
You’ll feel lighter all over.
