Don’t you just hate it when you have to make a choice between two options and you can’t decide which to pick? Inevitably I seem to agonise most about fairly minor decisions; big issues I’m much more decisive about. From late afternoon I was almost to the point of self-torment, mentally flicking between the two choices, trying to weigh up the pros and cons. In the end it became so all-consuming of my thoughts that I had to very definitely tell myself to stop obsessing about my fairly trivial dilemma. I knew that sitting ruminating all night would only make me anxious (besides, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate on “Springwatch”). I absorbed myself with other things, other thoughts, pushing the decision to the back of my mind – “Tomorrow”, I asserted to myself, “Tomorrow I will make the choice”. This tactic of emptying my mind appears to have worked as a clear choice has already – within hours – surfaced. I stopped the inner chatter and in doing so heard the still, small voice inside. I now know what I’m going to do. And I know it’s the right choice.
