There are times in life when we come to a crossroads. To a path we’ve never traveled and maybe never wanted to travel. 

We’re forced into making a decision, we may even take a look inside, but we don’t know what to do. So we get more information, generate studies, run tests, and push off the decision. 

Ironically, our investigation doesn’t provide us with much more clarity and we are largely left in the same place where we were before. 

But the day comes and the decision has to be made. 

So how do I do that when the answers are truly unknown?

For most of my life, I’ve worked in the unknown. In a place that lacks certainty and is combined with life changing implications. 

I’ve found the answer. Take whatever information that I may have and in an open and honest way decide with my heart. It came with trusting myself. 

To know that in that moment I’m making my decision with honesty and truthfulness and in that moment I AM doing the best I can.  

Who really knows what’s to come?

I may walk down a path and find obstacles ahead. Maybe even my biggest fear. But with the tools I have inside me, I can get through them.  

Each one of us is created with a piece of the everlasting built in. The piece that goes on forever and ever. When I tap into that place, and make decisions from there, I can do so with wholesomeness, an open heart and pure intention. 

It is from that same place that I can get through anything that subsequently comes my way.

I’m back at my decision to make, but now operating from my best purest place and knowing that no matter the outcome, I am supported and I will get through it.
