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.

    Whatever it is-I wish you the best of luck with it. I’ve made some tough decisions in my writing career and I haven’t regretted any of them-yet

    Always go with your gut. Those niggles are there for a reason…
    (and who was it you turned down?

    Thanks, Kate!

    Wylie – I’m not going there. I just think it wasn’t right for me (which isn’t to say that it’s not for others). Hopefully there will be others that are. In the meantime

    Big hugs to you honey. I dealt with something a few months ago that at first was so exciting and thrilling and then it started to fall apart. And I realized my gut was telling me RUN! So I did.

    And I don’t regret it. Your head might be spinning right now but you’ll be okay. Better things will come.

    I’ve had those moments too. I’m sure this decision, even tough, was the right one for you. I wish you the very best.
