Time to Decide

Decisions, decisions, decisions. "Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide." - Napolean Bonaparte.

I never thought I was an indecisive person. But when in school, I didn't have to decide on much. Maybe what courses I wanted to take, whether to apply for masters or not, what to eat for lunch, etc. Now that I'm out of school, I'm suddenly forced to become an adult when I doubt I'm ready to be one.

Sometimes I just wish someone else could make my decisions for me. (Not in the "Jesus take the wheel" way, but you know what I mean.)

Having decisions to make is a responsibility but it also means we have choices, which is a blessing.
Although having our decisions made for us may seem alluring, where's the fun in that?

I sit in the grey monsoon watching bullfrogs swirl and sway in the waves of their puddles. I wonder how many hearts have swayed like this in light rain.

You're out of school? Maybe now you'll have time to read that Stephen King memoir some nice person gave to you a long time ago.
