Decisions have never been easy for me. Deciding what to wear can be a challenge, but it’s easy enough to change my mind; major decisions are another story.
To buy or not to buy
We’ve been looking at houses this spring and found one with a spacious open concept living area and a gorgeous view of a forest, pond and babbling brook. It’s a century old mill converted to a beautiful two bedroom plus den house: hardwood floors throughout with new appliances.

In life we have choices and decisions to make every day. I don’t have any difficulty choosing between strawberry and vanilla sherbet because if I choose strawberry today I can always have vanilla tomorrow. Deciding what to wear can be a bit more of a challenge and I sometimes put on an outfit only to change my mind and go through the bother of undressing and putting on another outfit.
Choosing this outfit was a quick decision to wear to view the house.
I bought this cute little jacket in NYC at Anthropol0gie in August, but I paid full price–ouch!–so it wasn’t an easy decision to buy it, but I’m glad I did.
I love this kitchen!
There would be money left over for traveling and clothes, the place is move-in ready–nothing to do. Best of all, a forest beside the house and a babbling brook behind the house. So what’s the problem? No garage AND it’s in another city, that means a BIG change.
It’s the life–changing decisions that scare me! Knowing that what I decide will not only affect me but others as well. Considering the pros and cons can help sometimes but not always, for we don’t necessarily know the outcome and the profound difference it might make.
Some boxes have pictures and descriptions to help you decide but life does not come with that helpful info. We need to take risks and chances. We need to think and consider the consequences. Will we make mistakes? Will we have regrets? I doubt there are many who could honestly say, “No.”
Even if we don’t buy it, it gives me hope that we’ll find a nice place eventually.
Perhaps sometimes it’s best to just flip a coin!
I didn’t have to make the decision after all, someone else made it for me. I called the real estate agent last night and the house is SOLD!
Sometimes you miss out if you don’t decide fast enough. Has that ever happened to you?
