    Not Gonna

    It's good to be indecisive. Means you're evolving and not conforming.

    About everything and anything.

    Buy a house or rent? City or country living? Perhaps a tiny house or travel the country in an RV? Enjoy being fat or lose weight? Vegetarianism or eat that cow? To homeschool or not to? Buy a new car or used? Sell my stuff or just give it away? The list goes on and on...

    I'm Never Sure Of Anything!

    But I think that's normal for a lot of people. I don't have any life-altering decisions that this has affected as of yet, but it's usually the little things that are difficult for me to decide. For instance, my hair. I am never sure how I want to get it styled or colored. One day...

    Indesiciveness Sucks

    I have such a hard time making decisions.  I hate it!  I always second guess myself.  What if things change?  What if I won't be happy?  I'm sure you know the drill.

    I Told Him to Go

    I will not be able to smell the way he smells first thing in the morning. I will not be able to take a shower with him. I will not be able to feel the way he feels against my body when we lay in bed. I love to snuggle up close, breathe in his scent and feel...

    Eye Shadow

    I can make up my mind and I don't like people who are not as decisive as I am. It's not that hard; you either know what you want or you don't. If you don't, it is not that difficult to fake it. People who can't make up their minds just show others how weak they really are. A...
