I’ve never been good at making decisions. I tend to go back and forth, weighing the options several times, and then just as I think I’ve made my decision I think of something on the other side that causes me to waver.
If it was a decision between a “bed of roses” and a “pile of crap” the choice is obviously easy. It’s when I have two equally desirable options, however, that it becomes difficult.
I’ve always wondered about those people who make a decision and never look back. How do they feel so certain that they’ve made the right choice? Perhaps, one never knows. Does making a decision (or choosing a path) mean that you never look back? Never consider other possibilities?
I was faced with just such a difficult decision this past week. Full time homeschool or continue with the part time program in which we’ve been participating these last two years. I’ve decided to try full time this year. I went back and forth over all of the pros and cons many mannny times. It was so hard because I love that program. It would have been easier if I was pissed off at them, actually. I am happy with my choice, though, and look forward to the year ahead.
Yesterday, we went to the school early, dropped off our borrowed books and cleaned out their desks. It was sad to say “see ya later” (we didn’t want to say good-bye) to everyone. Afterwards, we went for a walk at a nearby nature trail. It was a nice way to shift gears.
