There are times in life when you come to a point and you have to make a path-splitting decision.
Yes or no.
I don’t think path-splitting is even an adjective but it is the best way to describe what I mean.
When that time comes it is usually accompanied by a risk either high or low depending on the circumstances; the higher the risk the harder the decision.
If you shall find yourself in this type of situation then here is what you should do.
1) Make yourself a warm, comforting drink. I personally always go with tea. You may choose coffee or warm vodka… whatever floats your boat or should I say calms your boat *insert fake laugh here*
2) Sit on a comfortable chair and make sure you are alone in your room/house and that there is no noise around you.
3) Take a sip of your warm drink.
4) Sit for a while, just don’t fall asleep.
5) Now after you are calm and relaxed; after you feel that your mind is at ease and is no longer worried by the consequences that might arise in the future; after you realize that you are in the moment – you are then ready to make your decision.
6) Think about the two paths but don’t worry about the consequences as they arise in your mind.
7) First think about the path which is the one in which you said yes to yourself and decided to go with it.
8) Second think about the path which is the one in which you said no to yourself and decided to continue living with your own routine.
9) Think about both separately and try to visualize them like they are really happening to you. Don’t judge. Don’t exaggerate.
10) Take another sip of your warm drink (or cold by now).
11) How would this choice affect you in regards to your personal development?
12) Would this choice affect your loved ones and how?
13) Which choice makes you feel like you are home again?
If you take some time and really try to answer these questions you will see the fog clearing out in your mind. Give it some time and the final answer will show itself. Decisions like these take time for our minds to process.
I wish you all the best and hopefully this helped you!
