Decisions

There are times in your life when you have to look objectively at situations, even if its very very personal. Times when there is no right or wrong, but just action. Like the famous quote by Lord Krishna, “Action is its own fruit.” When you cant get caught up in emotions and relations…..to accomplish the selfish goal.

The past week has been crazy mentally and emotionally for me, due to decisions on personal goals. I’m probably still not out of them yet, and in some sense, will never be. But the whole stress and nightmarish sleep and wondering which fits well in my life, in my future, trying to predict the future, trying to analyse my strengths and weaknesses, trying not to show my weaknesses to people…. God! Its one thing after another…

So then I asked myself, if I’m ready for a change. Which is more important,in terms of my career, now or the future? Its like an investment. We never think of buying and selling property in a few months, unless you have several ;) We invest to get returns over a long period. And that’s what I thought,let me focus on later, not on now.

This rationale comes only later though… your first instinct is the one I believe in. You know the feeling in your stomach, the gut feeling, when you just know this thing is really bad for you, or really good for you. Its also the vibe you get from the new people and new place/ environment you enter… It really counts for me and the decisions I’ve made so far on that feeling have turned out to be just perfect and gorgeous!! :)

I feel content. Even if there are hiccups on the way, I’m pretty sure, this is going to be good for me in the long run.

No one is to blame. Its my decision and when my heart and head agree, no regrets :)

Perceptions....

A single Word...."Decision" and two very different perceptions...

It was nice to get a glimpse of your mind set or rather mind state....

Taking the things as they come...its very very good that you are not at all suffering from the disease that i am enduring....

You are thinking a lot!

Yeah, the gut feeling is something. And most of the times, it is right. Thinking, sometimes doesn't matter, it just makes us worry more.

wow... u write really well!!

Being in a similar position, i can understand what it feels like... the whole turbulence, of rationale vs. instincts... but what has always worked for me, is my conviction... if i am convinced that my instincts are right irrespective of how stupid they sound, i have stuck to it... and its worked for me!!

Hope it works for u too... take care!!

p.s: u write really well, am surprised, how i could skip ur blog, before!!

~rach -very true... conviction matters the most. Thanks for the compliments! I think u write really well too :)
