Do you want the donkey or the horse? An old friend used to remind me of this. I think it’s a Bible reference. Jesus said I’ll take the donkey because the horse is tied to something. That’s to say there is a price to pay for everything, it’s just that the sacrifice is different. What are you willing to live with?
I’m 25 and I’m at the point in my life where I want to have everything figured out. But my mom reminds me that I haven’t lived long enough to know much of anything. And even she, a woman approaching 50, is still figuring it out.
On a daily basis we are faced with decisions. The magnitude of them vary obviously. But conceptually we are talking about the same thing. My decision to brew my tea at home instead of stopping at Starbucks on my way in will save me money but it will cost me time. That’s just life. Take the time necessary and be calculated in your decision making.
I’m learning to pause and think before I do anything. I have my moments. Heck I threw a can of beans out the window earlier today because I couldn’t open it.
But it’s important to make your choices on your own accord and deal with the consequences good or bad accordingly. I had another can of beans!
