I just read a tweet that said, “Overthinking can lead to dying sooner”. This doesn’t help me at all. But here I am, minutes to 11:00 pm EST, at my home desk, only home for about 15 minutes, and I can’t stop thinking.
My mentor in my head tweeted (maybe I should get off twitter) “2 months from the next decade, what are you going to be intentional about in this new decade?” I can’t help but be stuck in my racing thoughts because it’s the thing that I’ve been trying to pull together for months. I’ve made some pivotal changes that I’m questioning my decisions a little. Well truth is, the later decision has my neck HOT (the thing that happens when stress storms my body).
I guess I’m typing this as a reminder to ask myself this question until I’ve finally come up with a reasonable quest to conquer. So, what’s next?
Have you figure out what you’ll be intentional about in the new decade? What’s next?

Be glad that you had the courage to make those decisions you made and did it. If it didn’t turn out to be “right”, you can stop. If it is right, you keep doing it. Either way, regardless of what the outcome is, one thing for sure is you will not live with regret wondering “what if I have done this…” for the rest of your life.
Thank you Terrie!
I think it’s normal to second guess the decisions you’ve made, especially if they were major ones. I feel like it’s one of those things we do when we fear the unknown, even if we aren’t aware that’s what we’re doing. For the most part, we make decisions sometimes without really thinking about where they will lead us. As we continue on, the unknown can become scary thing I suppose. The unknown isn’t so scary sometimes though. Sometimes we navigate better through not knowing what is going to happen next.
I agree with Shannon and Terrie. Making decisions take courage… Sometimes we make the right ones. Sometimes we don’t. But at least you can say that you tried.
It is very normal to second guess decisions, especially when we are unsure of what’s on the other side. Always remember that one decision leads to another decision, and there are always multiple paths that you can take. If you get too far down the road, don’t be afraid to turn around or ask for help or take another path.
As far as being intentional for me? I honestly don’t know. 2019 was a life-changing year for me, and right now, I’m focusing on one day at a time… Evaluating myself before I move forward with anything.
