We make them all the time. Sometimes, they end up making things better for you. Sometimes, they make things worse for you. Sometimes, you just want to tear your hair out in frustruation because no matter what you decide, nothing seems to work out the way you want it to.
I have had this happen to me in lots of ways. In the creation of Vice, my hero(?) in Golden Knave, I made decisions about him that ended with me hitting the brick wall of writer’s block not just once, but several times! Recently, it was decision to sell some of my work on Etsy – again. The first time I tried, it didn’t work out and ended in frustruation. This time, years later, the same thing happened. So, I’m done with that avenue. I am donating my work from now on, and I’ll make things for people if they ask. Otherwise, I just want to beat my head against the wall in frustruation.
I’ve made some good decisions too. My finances are improving thanks to some recent decisions and now, I don’t feel a desperate need to get promoted at a workplace I don’t really enjoy any longer. I can survive decently on what I’m making right now as a lowly salary worker while I wait for my writing to get published.
All in all, decisions are made almost every second of our lives, and for the good or the bad, we have to deal with the consequences of those decisions.
Right this second, I’m deciding to end this post and go to be because I have to work tonight, and I can’t go in tired because it’s Friday night – one of the busiest nights of my schedule.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdrivers!!!
