Make Your Own Decisions

This week on the blog, we’ve decided mix a dose of our weekly challenge with a pinch of Monday’s DIY.

Make your own decisions today.

It’s extremely easy to get caught up in the exceedingly opinionated views of those around us. Whether our mothers, our boyfriends, our co-workers, our MTA subway conductor, or our baristas who pass us our daily caffeine fix, take today to tune them all out and make your own decisions. We know that (sometimes) they mean well, but today we are urging you to just do you. From the minute we wake up to the minute we pass out on the couch, we are forced to make choices and decisions that will affect the rest of the day.

Should I wear pants today?
Should I walk to work or take the subway?
Should I offer up a hard-earned dollar to a panhandling little kid on the subway?
Should I pack an umbrella?
Should I forgive and forget?
Should I have another glass of wine?

The pros and cons can be somewhat overwhelming. With vast sources of media clamoring to make up our minds for us, and well-meaning friends and family who have strong opinions on our lives and the choices we make, it can be difficult to remember to put yourself first. For all of the times you worry about making a wrong decision, making a choice that could potentially ruin your day, you could give in to your gut and come to a conclusion on your own.

Whatever your process, be it a pro/con list or a thoughtful pondering process in a spare five minutes, we are challenging you to give yourself the opportunity to consider yourself, your head, your heart, today. Nobody knows you better than you.

Do it.

Make your own decisions this Monday. We’re standing behind you 100%.
