What’s Next

Have you ever felt like your life was at a crossroads with about 89 different choices you could make?  Each choice looks just as promising as the next, so it’s hard to pass up any of them.  Welcome to my plain life.  The question I have been asking myself constantly…

…what comes next?

Sometimes I wish I could know the future.  Wouldn’t it be an amazing ability to have?  I mean, who wouldn’t want to know which job to take, which guy is right for them, which school to enroll in.   Maybe you’re like me and you can’t even decide which pants to wear in the morning.  To be honest, I wish I had this talent this morning when the black ice on the sidewalk outside my apartment got the best of me. Ouch.

I don’t know how many times a day I ask myself this question.  It’s not that I don’t enjoy the risk in these decisions… but I can’t help but think that I want to live out each and every one of the 89 roads in front of me.  One taking me down the path of being an amazing mother, another leads me to be the teacher of the year, still another plops me in the middle of the countryside caring for my cows and chickens.  And so on…

What’s amazing is that even when you choose to take on of those roads, it ends up that before you know it you’re at another cross roads with 57 more choices!  57 more.  Good grief.  For someone who struggles with choices this is a nightmarish thought.
