Some Decisions Take Time

Updated: Jul 1, 2019

Every decision we choose creates the life that we are living every day. The little decision slowly starts shaping who we are. From the food we consume, the words we let slip through our lips, and most of all the people whom we decide to share our time with. This can be hard to accept if someone is unwilling to accept change. There are times when the pressure to make important decisions in life, can drown us with overwhelming feelings. Therefore, we get sidetracked by our feelings that can lead us to neglect the right answer. Quickly made decisions can often time lead us to walk the road we didn’t expect to take in life. So how does one find the balance in knowing if something should be done or said at the time being?

Mastering the art of waiting patiently until we are certain about our choices is essential. Yes, there are some things that need to decide on at the moment that can’t be waited. However, what might seem right today, might not be tomorrow. Something small that we might do or feel one day might grow into the biggest thing that controls our future decisions. For example, the butterflies that someone might give you in the begging can become the love of your life over time. But it can also quickly turn and fade away.

The decisions that we choose to make will slowly reflect back to us, which could lead us to the outcome of our choice. Have you heard the famous quote that says, “Your life is always one decision away from becoming something totally different?” Therefore, I believe that it is important to master the art of waiting patiently. Wait patiently for an answer to come to you, when the decision is too big for your brain to wrap itself around. Believe that if you give it the time it needs, everything will slowly make sense and it will all unfold in front of you. What you believe in today might not be what you believe in tomorrow, but always be willing to accept the change that comes with time.

When you give something the time and patience it needs, the decision can be made with love. It won’t be rushed, desperate and it certainly won’t be a mistake. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking the time that you need to decide on how you want your life to turn out. Take the time you need, to respond to someone after they get you angry. Take the time to make a decision on your own time for you, and not be pressured by anybody else. After all, there isn’t a single soul on this earth who knows what you need to do, to get the life that you have always dreamed of.

Practices to add to your life:

1. Pause

When strong emotions arise, before you respond take a pause, and don’t be afraid to think about what you are going to say or do next. By taking a 5-second pause, it can make all the difference in your life. It can give you the chance to take a deep breath, and let go of your ego before you say something you might regret. It is giving yourself the time to think about whether the next step you are about to take will get you closer to where you want to be. Some things are not meant to be said…just yet.

2. Take the time on big decisions

Don’t let yourself get ahead in big decisions that you might regret. When your mind wants all in something but your heart says otherwise, that’s when you know the only way you can ever have the answer you need is by giving it time. With time, life finds a way to show you and make you certain about what you have to do. Sometimes good things take time, and if you want something to last forever then you can’t rush it.

3. Keep Learning

When you are torn between choices, the best thing you can do is educate yourself. Write down the pros and cons and see which side fits into your life. Search for answers from different places and let yourself make the final decision based on the life that you are desperate to create. Just remember that in most cases a growing mind will always get you further than a fixed mindset.

How do you give yourself time when your uncertain about something?
