Life is filled with tough choices, hard questions, and difficult times, but everything happens for a reason
It has been a very long time since I spoke candidly about my life on here. I think it is because I feel as though no one would want to read what someone like me has to say about my life. However, I think it is a good time to take a moment to look back on a few lessons I’ve learned in the month of September pertaining to hard life choices.
Without going into my current situation, things have happens in my life recently that have forced me to start making decisions I thought I could put off. That is the first thing I learned about hard choices; they choose when they want to be made sometimes. I thought I could put off this situation I was delaying for so long as if delaying it would fix everything, but I learned that no matter how much I delay, the situation will always be staring me in the face until I take confront it head on.
The second thing I learned is that I should trust my gut even if it hurts. I still worry that once I make this tough choice, I will regret it. However, down the line, I think I will appreciate how this situation helped me grow. I was talking to a friend recently about how I feel like bad things are put in our path in order to encourage us to grow in ways that we may deem uncomfortable. But from this uncomfortable growth, we learn who and what we deserve in our lives.
The third thing I learned is that the Universe takes and gives with purpose. You will lose things, but through loss you will also gain. The Universe isn’t out to destroy you, it just hurts you sometimes so you know when to move on.
Lastly, I learn that tough decisions don’t last. They have to be made and once they are, you are already onto the next tough decision.
My tough decisions haven’t been made yet, but I feel that I am ready to take them on.
