Anybody who knows me well, knows that I’m probably the world’s most indecisive person. From choosing what I want to eat for tea to deciding on the length of my hair – if it’s a decision, I’ll probably struggle to make it.
Ever since I’ve been little I’ve always thought that whatever I do now will somehow impact me in the future. The choices I make now (no matter big or small) have always concerned me, and because I’m a huge believer in that everything happens as a result of your own decisions. Unfortunately, that thought is too installed in my brain now; to the point where I’m debating how having my nails nude or black will affect me in a few hours (which is quite ridiculous, if you ask me).
However, being a bad decision-maker does have its downsides – and I’m not talking about waiting in Tesco’s for half an hour whilst I decide what type of rice I want. It impacts the relationships I have with my friends, family and even colleagues as I’m always thinking “how will this benefit me in future?”.
When my friends ask me if I want to go shopping, I always debate if I could be doing something to better myself and my career; like writing another blog post for this blog, or working on something for my full-time job.
This thought has plagued me and it was only until a few days ago when I realised what the answer was… The only way to know is to simply try it and find out, and not spend so much time worrying about the future. After all, it could be the best decision of your life.
In a bid to stick to my New Years resolution on becoming more confident, I’ve been more trusting in my ability to make decisions and trust that my gut feeling is right. So, when my friends ask me if they want to hang out, I’ll say yes! You never know, something amazing might happen on that trip that you never could’ve imagined and you missed out on by doing something else.
My new motto? Trust your gut, grow some balls and just do it!
