The decisions we widows make every single day are what builds the foundation of our future.
Some are small decisions – should I walk today or set and watch T.V.? Some are life decisions that have more of an affect on our lives – do I forgive my friend for their thoughtless comment or do I hold on to it?
Our decisions often come from how we were brought up, our life experiences and our beliefs.
Example: If your belief is that friendships are important, you will forgive your friend for their one thoughtless comment. If you had parents that exercised you will be more apt to choice a walk over T.V.
Take an inventory of your life to see what is working and what needs to be changed.
Being comfortable can become a trap and to leave that comfort you will have to avoid the temptation of doing what you did today, tomorrow.
You have to make a conscience choose to do something different. If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you will continue life as it is – if you do different, you will be different.
Now, if your a new widow and grieving please don’t make any sudden changes. You may not be thinking clearly, but when you’re ready you will feel the need for change and that is when you can take an inventory of your life.
