The Choice Less Traveled…


Yesterday afternoon…I was faced with two options…go to the gym…or…clean the kitchen…I had just enough time and energy to do one…but not both…I wanted to do both…I needed to do both…the dilemma was on…

I did the reasonable thing…when faced with a really tough decision…I posted it as my Facebook status…I received two swift…unanimous comments…GYM

I cleaned the kitchen…

Now…it’s not that I don’t take advice well…hmmm…okay…well I don’t…but…I looked at the kitchen…and knew that leaving it would make me feel a little worse than going to the gym would make me feel good…

Berthasaid…that’s the way it is with life…decisions aren’t always clear cut…between something that is…good…and something that is…bad…sometimes both of the options are…good…it’s just that one of them…will be…better

The funny thing is…she said that…better…changes from day to day…moment to moment…and that given the same options this afternoon…I might make a totally different decision…

She said the main thing is to stay flexible…not forming rigid rules or beliefs based on one afternoon’s dilemma…

And…she’s right…of course she’s right…she’s…Bertha
