We make decisions everyday, but at some point in our life, we will find ourselves at a cross-road where a critical decision needs to be made—one that will change our life forever. Sometimes such decisions don’t turn out in our favour, but then there are times when it’s the best decision we’ve ever made; which brings me to this week’s question:

Question: What’s The Best Decision You’ve Ever Made?

My response: Without a doubt, the best decision I ever made was stepping completely out of my comfort zone, stop living to please others, and putting my happiness first, for once. Best-Decision-Ever!

How about you?

  1. This is a great question. The kind that makes you look within yourself. And now that I did, amongst a few life changing ones, the one that pops in my mind first, is letting the right guy enter my life, and he happens to be my husband today. Sounds cliche, and i won’t go much into details, but this decision has sure made my life more beautiful. I think the right kind of people make you fall more in love with yourself, and bring out a side in you, that you kept hiding for long. It’s when you realize you don’t need heroes to make your life better, you are your own hero. I won’t say the right person changes your life, but they sure do make you get up, and change your own life for good.

    1. Awww… You know why I absolutely love this? Because the exact same thing happened with me. Sometimes we just need to meet the right person to bring out the best in us. I’m so happy for you. Thanks so much for sharing this Jiji.

  2. Ending a marriage that just wasn’t working. We’d been together for just over 9 and a half years, and I had to end it. Major factor was infidelity (I found after the marriage ended, that he had been unfaithful on a regular basis, throughout our relationship). I didn’t need that negativity in my life anymore, and it was time to walk away. Best decision and my most life changing one

  3. Did I make the decision consciously? I don’t think it was a sit down and ponder. I just gradually stopped trying to please other people. Like me or not, here I am. I’ve since come to realize that people aren’t really thinking about me…they’re thinking about what others are thinking about them. :

    1. That’s great Tim. I think as we get older we tend to realise we cannot please everyone, so we might as well do to please ourselves. I’m glad you stopped trying to please others. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  4. I love your response to the question babe. Mainly because it’s the best decision I ever made as well. Stepping out of my comfort zone has completely transformed my life, however the point at which I started doing that, as you know, is when I started Gym.

  5. The best decisions we make in life usually seem to be the most difficult decisions. The best decision I ever made was stepping out of my comfort zone, and moving 1,500 miles away from home and all of my family and friends to start a new life in a place where I didn’t know anybody. The result for me has been basically the same thing you mentioned, Candace. I have had to adapt and learn to step out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. I learned to love myself and put myself first. I do what makes me happy now, instead of trying to please others. Life is too short to spend it worrying about what others think all the time.

  6. The best decision I ever made was marrying my husband. He has brought so much peace and joy to my life. He is my best friend and he makes me want to be the best version of myself. I have made quite a few significant, and beneficial, deicisions, but marrying him has been my best so far.

  7. The best decision I ever made was accepting that I have made mistakes in the past. Learning to live with it. Growing and moving on, leaving its toxicity behind. Believing that my happiness is the focal point of being healthy and anyone who is not contributing isn’t someone I want in my life.

    1. Wow, your response is very relate-able. It takes a certain level of growth and maturity to accept the mistakes of our past and move forward to better things. Thank you so much for being so open and sharing 🙂

  8. I have accepted my fears, stepped out of my comfort zone and started a new life in a place I did not know anybody. Actually, I have followed my intuition and I am happy I did it. Thank you for sharing your post, smile and love! Manuela <3
