There's Not One Right Decision


I am on vacation for the next five days, I have packed a lot into those days... today was super busy with one errand after another. I did everything I had planned and tomorrow Valentina and I are going to get our hair done, she is getting peek a boo colors in the back. We are having a mommy daughter day and going to have make overs together. I am looking forward to that time with her, then I have to settle into studying. I am feeling ready though, once I made a decision, I relaxed.

Isn't that always the way it is, at least it is with me. I spend so much time weighing my options and wondering if I am making the 'right' decision... then once I do, I relax because the truth is, even if it isn't the 'right' decision, I can always change direction. I need to remember that more often... I am just wasting time with trying to make the 'right' decision. I usually take the right path, I may take the round about way but I always get there.

Sometimes I think I write about the same thing that I wrote about six months or a year ago. I go back and do a search and I find I have but once I read it I realize I have a whole different take on it now then I did at that time. Which reinforces to me the importance for me to continue to write down my challenges, failures and successes so that each time I may deal with that trial on a different level. I will be able to see just how far I have come.

For me if I don't write it down, in a year or so when I come up against a similar trial, I wouldn't be able to clearly recall how I dealt with it and how I overcame it. Before computers became the norm, I rarely wrote stories on paper because I could never keep up with my thoughts. I don't always keep up with them on the computer but at least I can type my words instead of writing ineligible sentences.

I am grateful for lessons, none of them being easy... some of them being so downright painful I wondered how I made it through them. I realized for me it was being able to write my stories out so that it gave me chance to see the solution. Often times it is the comments or messages that I have from you that have given me the answer... other times I will be reading a blog post that someone has written, it touches and inspires me.

I have something I need to say, this past year has been the most tumultuous year of my life. I had life changes that threw me for a loop where I wondered if I would ever recover from the feelings of sadness and despair. I honestly attest this blog and my readers really helped me to get through. I may have lost one of the most important persons ('him') from my life but I gained all of you who are there for me. I felt so lost and alone but when I wrote I had so many of you reaching out and offering friendship, thank you.

  1. There is no "right" decision--only the decision that's right for you at the time! Hope you have a great vacation.

  21. Very true but you know Launna I am very bad when it comes to making decision as I am very emotional and when I have to take a decision I often take it by heart then brain!! I think I should be more practical!

  41. Sometimes, when I had such a bad day, I read your blog and it touches me so much. Im sitting here at 1 am, thinking if I did the right choice and know: Yes! Even if not, everything will find its way! Life isnt always about taking the easiest way, sometimes its about all the hurdles we have to take. These moments when you start to reflect about your life and what you´ve been to can only makes you stronger!

    Enjoy your vacation with Valentina! These moments are much more worth than any gold!

    I dont see you blo as a blog. I see it as a diary, a part of your life you are willing to share with us! That why lettersfromlaunna is one of my favorites blog!

  42. One of the benefits of blogging is that you can look back and see how you've grown as a person over time.
    You aren't the same person you were a year ago.

  53. I do the same thing, I can procrastinate forever on making a decision but once I've made it, I feel so much better and lighter. Makes me wonder, too, why I don't do this more often, I still struggle with making decisions most of the time! You say a lot of things in this post that resonate, thanks for articulating them. I sincerely believe that the hardest times make us stronger and better, once you rise from the ashes you may be surprised at how high you can fly! Oh, and your mommy daughter day reminds me of the time I just spent with my god-daughter (I don't have children of my own). We went to Tiffany's where I bought her a special ring for her graduation and then we had a pedicure together. She is 19 and I love hanging out with her, we have always been close even though we live 1000s of miles apart. She is another reason why I want to return to the Pacific Northwest as soon as we can. Have a wonderful vacation! xo

  63. Just as your body has shrunk over the past year, your experiences and perseverance have allowed your wisdom to expand. Making decisions isn't always easy, but not making a decision and just allowing things to happen is even worse. Decision-making puts us in control of our lives, rather than leave us going through the motions as a helpless victim. You done good, kiddo!

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
