Soulful living

The Next Right Thing

There are times in our lives when we are able to make thoughtful, timely decisions and things seem to flow well. Unfortunately, life often seems to come at us at such a pace that decisions are hard to make. We expend time and energy agonizing over some decisions for so long that the opportunity passes and the decision is made for us. It is only after this happens that we regret not having made a decision. If you are living with one regret too many, if you are overwhelmed by the number of decisions that you are asked to make, know that you are in good company.

As Emily P. Freeman shares in her new book: The Next Right Thing, “Decisions shape our lives.” She goes on to add that, “what we often overlook is not only how our choices shape outcomes but how they shape us too. They reveal our character and help to create our character.”
