It will always be hard to make a decision, it is innately dangerous because with each road there are benefits and liabilities. However, the worst place you can be in at any moment in life is in the in-between.
While deliberation is necessary; it is not a space to be in eternally. Before long, if you stay there, you would have experienced a worse fate than making the wrong decision. Life will have passed you by and when the end has come. You will have noticed while deliberating you forgot to live.
We are young and that means we will make mistakes. You heard it enough any way. Some call it youthful bliss. Whatever it is we learn the best lessons through experience. And experience has taught me these lessons—some the hard way.
Fall offers us an opportunity to change, an open window to re-do and undo. It is that ripe time in the year where what has taken place before can become a foundation to what is to come. Winter is around the corner but we know that soon after spring will come and all the hard work we’ve put in during the hibernation months will bear fruit.

God will always send a good samaritan your way to help with your load. Sometimes the best support is from someone who connects with you on a level deeper than just obligation. Strangers become friends and new alliances are made. You get an overwhelming desire to pass along the good deed you have received and most of all we are more grateful.
Sometimes it is good to play in the snow. To watch the flakes fall and for a moment, a brief moment be a kid again. I can't say I've had the opportunity to make snow-angels or have a snowball fight as a kid; having lived in the tropics all of my life.
