Daily Prompt: Decisions, Decisions

How are you more likely to make an important decision — by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?

The past few years, I have been in the situation of having to make some important decisions concerning my health. Some at the spur of the moment; others with time to research and gather facts to aid in making the best choice. 

I have been in the position of going with my gut to make my decisions and gathering facts to reason through everything to come to a decision. Unfortunately, my decisions have involved my health; which only makes the decisions tougher.

I recently was put into a post ion to make some health decisions for my mother. I’d like to say I reasoned through the choices, but I didn’t. Mom truly needed to be in the hospital and I did what I had to do. It was the toughest thing I have ever done in my life. Mom is better, but she is facing serious life changes. 

To date, my choices have turned out well. God willing, that will continue to be my trend. As the decisions continue to get tougher; hopefully, the good Lord will continue to guide me in the right direction. 

Unfortunately, as my health changes; my decisions will get tougher. I’m hoping I can keep my head screwed on right and make good decisions. I don’t want to put too much on Barry. He has his own health issues to worry about.

In conclusion, when faced with decisions, you make the choice by whichever way fits the moment.
