 Risks, decisions and how the heck do people survive with all this stimulus? 

There are a few large decisions and risks we take in our lives.  Maybe deciding to have kids, getting married, what career path to go down, problem solving, whether or not to eat ice cream tonight.  Of course, there are a ton of other hard decisions.  Your schedule, where to live, to rent or to buy, how to talk to someone you’re having a conflict with, etc…  

Conflict resolution is probably one of the biggest for me.  I wear my heart on my sleeve and I always want people to be happy.  Never wanting to confront the issues, try to avoid them and they may go away.   Well that never happens, you end up resenting the other person way more then they deserve and the problem persists. So how do you make the right choices?

I feel like I’ve learned a few things about taking risks, and making decisions over the last few years I’ve been alive.  I know I have a ton more to learn, but… When I’m faced with a hard decision, I ask myself, “Who do I want to be in this situation and what do I value? How do my options support my values?” Inevitably I get a hunch.  I know the right thing to do.  I may not like it, and may times I am even scared of it, but once I ask those questions the answers become clear.

So the next time you’re struggling with a decision, ask your self, “Who do I want to be in this situation and what are my values, what decision supports those values?” Then dive in!   

As far as surviving with all this stimulus (read technology) I have no idea how people survive.  So go stand up away form your computer and squat ten times.  Great, now you can go on surfing!

    I don’t know what “clusters” are, but they sound scary. Thrusters, maybe?

  2. Ohhh clusters! My fave!

    I’m used to clusters. Everyday, a cluster.

  4. Hi guys,
    This is Fernanda. I went to the 4pm class today (09/06) and I might have dropped my necklace somewhere close to the bench where we live our bags. It’s a gold-ish necklace with my name on it. It was a gift from my mom, so if anybody sees it, please let me know so I can have it back 🙁

    Thank you so much!!
