Making decisions without waiting too long is important, but I have realized that letting go of the need to fix things right away can create some much-needed space to make the right decision.
Taking some time for ourselves and time to reflect brings us back to the decision with a clearer perspective.
And all within balance. Sometimes a very delicate one requiring us to really be in touch with ourselves and our needs. The fine balance in taking the time we need to take care of ourselves and reflect, but not allowing this time to make us passive and avoid what it is that we are needing to take action on.
This is the essential balance.
Perhaps at the end of the day, we are challenged to really be with ourselves. To talk to ourselves honestly and with compassion. To see what it is that we need at each given point in our life journey.
