The outcome of our decisions

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and I’m working on my next one. I saw a quote yesterday that really stuck out to me: “Your life is one decision away from being completely different.”  The timing is interesting because today marks a year from the decision that changed mine.

A year ago today, my best friend (who was engaged to my other best friend) and I made the decision to leave our significant others for each other and lie about it. I’ve never been known for my skills of deceit but he should have been so I wasn’t surprised when I got burned 4 months later.  Since then, my journey has had some major ups and downs including the loss of many friends I considered close.

Before all this, I thought I really knew who I was and I couldn’t have been more wrong. There are days when I miss the friendships that I had and regret the life changing decision I made. This experience has taught me so much about myself and the relationships I have with others that I otherwise wouldn’t have learned.

This quote triggered me to deeply reflect on this past year.  As I enter a new phase in life, it’s hard not to worry about the outcome of my choices or of not making the “right one”.  Where do I want to live? Do I want to continue the career I’ve started or follow a new passion? Maybe there is no “right choice”. Maybe it’s a just a matter of which path you want to take in this journey we call life.  I truly believe everything happens for a reason and patience is the key.

Thanks for reading my story. I hope it helps someone going through a hard time know they’re not alone and there is always a bright side. ❤
