On the Fence or Not?
Recently I became more aware than usual about a place that nobody really likes, that is, on the fence of a decision. A brain clash! People, and that includes me, weigh out the possibilities of outcomes known and unknown. In the business world, mergers and large money acquisitions are common occurrences, but to the average person, life decisions can cause stress, sleepless nights and digestive disorders. The fence of fear can be present anywhere in our lives. The truth is, big decisions sometimes make us powerless.
Here are a few things to consider:
I often hear people say, “I should have done that 10 years ago”. No one is ever 100% ready for big change, sometimes you have to just make the best choice for you and go with it.
If it helps you, focus on "less is more" and live as simple as possible. As I clean out the clutter, donate bags of unused items to charity and free myself of the unnecessary, the height of my fence decreases. Why not let lowering the fence and jumping off the fence become a lifestyle? Healthy choices and lifestyle changes may open new doors to allow joy in!
How ironic, The Clash’s 1982 hit single “Should I Stay or Should I Go” says this plain and simple, set me free! I encourage you to choose wisely, be set free and remember our choices show us who we truly are (Harry Potter) . . .
Interesting that a music group named the Clash should write a song that has a soul searching message about a “brain clash”!

I truly appreciate the advice you offer for making positive changes. With the new year, many of us feel overwhelmed or overburdened w/ everything we hope to accomplish - many of those things were on our lists at this time last year. "Brain clash" is right. Thanks for a gentle nudge in the right direction.
