It's always hard when faced with a tough decision.
This past week I've had one of those lying heavily on my mind. With everything else going on its been tough to give it the time it needs to fully weigh the pros and cons. The impact it may have in a positive or negative way on my family.
My father's sister passed away last week. I spent Sunday and Monday out of town attending the memorial and spending time with my cousin. My mom's mom has been in the hospital for over two weeks now. She has been getting worse instead of better. Now, my mom's sister is also in the hospital. May has not been a good month for my family.
So the decision I needed to make had to wait. I put it off. I attempted to ignore it. All I received in return were sleepless nights with everything worrying me and weighing me down. My anxiety levels have been up and panic attacks on the horizon.
Today I researched and asked in depth, detailed questions about the choices I had to make. The deadline was approaching fast.
This evening I am confident in the decision I finally made. There was not necessarily a right or wrong choice. However, there was a lot of grey area and opportunity for negative future impact. I decided for my families sake to chose the option that was a guarantee.
Who knows what the future may bring but at least this way I know where I'm going and what I need to do to make it work.
Now I pray there will be no regrets. I'm 90% certain there won't be. Now to focus on the positive, move forward and make things happen.
