#995 root out ambivalence from your life

4 Jul

ambivalence:  (n) uncertainty or fluctuation, esp. when caused by inability to make a choice or by a simultaneous desire to say or do two opposite or conflicting things.

Today’s deed is under the section entitled do good for yourself- specifically under the sub-section “work on you”. It reads “other people see ambivalence as an inability to make a decision or procrastionation. Cultivate the ability to take thoughtful and decisive action.”  We face decisions everyday: small ones and large ones. Each decision affects our lives in some way. Choosing is hard though- sometimes you dont know if you want Chilis or Buffalo Wild Wings, or sometimes you dont know if you should take the easy way over the right way.

Choosing to do what is necessary is always the hardest thing…but you must look deep inside you, even if it hurts. Following this- actually sticking to your decision is hard…That may be even harder actually. I think though, with rooting out ambivalence, any subject can be approached from the small to the large. Maybe it’s best to make decisions with smaller effects, and then gradually reach life-changing ones. Or maybe it’s best to start large- go big or go home right?

Happy fourth of July everyone…enjoy the celebrations and good luck with your decision-making. I know today’s post wasn’t all that exhilirating, but I guess its more of a thought-provoking one today….Until tomorrow, 
 “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
