Today I made a decision about something that was completely the opposite of how I ever imagined myself making the decision. I’m not going to go into it too many of the details, but sufficed to say it’s a moment I thought would make me completely jubilant and be the start of something big for me as a writer.
It’s funny how you can imagine these things in your head a million times and yet when the reality comes it is so different. Almost like when you were hoping your man would propose to you, but it wasn’t the way you dreamed or by the time it comes, you’ve already realised he wasn’t the man for you.
Well, thankfully, my man and I are just fine (and have been married 12 years in September) so that’s not an issue here.
But, for me, it was along those lines of a big life/career decision and I wonder if I’ve done the right thing. I’ve spent the last week reviewing different things and it really came down to just a niggle. When I’ve ignored those niggles before I’ve regretted it. 9 times out of 10 when I follow them, I find out I’ve done the right thing.
I certainly hope this isn’t the 1 out of 10 that’s wrong.
