Have you ever had to make a big decision?
One where you head and heart were at war with each other?
Sometimes it’s all well and good when people say ‘listen to your heart’ but sometimes, you just have to go with your head. A couple of weeks ago I had to make a big decision. It was to resign from my second job in Social Media that I loved. And if I had’ve listened to my heart, I would’ve stayed, no question, because I loved what I was doing and I loved who I worked for.
But you know, sometimes, the heart isn’t always the best judge. My health hasn’t been awesome lately (as I’ve already shared with you in this post), nothing life threatening but it has been effecting my day to day life and my interactions with my family (no one likes a pounding migraine at the best of times!). I was trying to do all the things, mothering, wife-ing, general household stuff, extra-curricular stuff and two jobs…..and I’ve been doing awesome at it to be honest, but it was time. Something had to give.
I to-ed and fro-ed for days, heart and head battled. Heart was winning, but then the head would always pop back in with such an un-agruable argument, and then so, it was done. Health wins. Family wins. More time wins. They always should…..thanks head!
So it was with a heavy heart I handed in my notice. Instantly, my world began to change. And if I’m to be honest, I’ve already felt a little lost. I have so much time back that I’m not exactly sure what to do with yet……I think I’ll read a book, I think I’ll blog more for me (because heck I’ve missed it!), I think I will rest and rejuvenate.
I’d love to know if you’ve made any tough decisions lately and whether your head or heart won?
