Thoughts on the ‘Art of Making Choices’—-Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Have you ever thought on the art of making choices?

Yesterday, while I worked in my yard,

In the huffing and blowing in the very warm late spring—nearly summer— wind

That silly little thought kept running around in my mind….. ‘what is the art of making choices’?  I pondered from one garden bed to another

The wind flipped my hair here and there and everywhere, little bits of soil flying into my eyes

By the time I made it to the west side of the yard, I could hear the wind in the trees down at the other house.

Gradually, the wind slowed enough I could hear the bird’s singing in the rosebushes, and high in the tops of the trees in our yard

Still, I wondered: what is the art of making choices?

Finally, I decided…there is no art.  You do the best you can do.

Every once in awhile you will make a wrong choice.  Everyone does.

But no choice is never a good thing.  With choosing ‘no choice’ we are choosing to not live, to experience, to be full and present in our lives.

From my world to your heart,

  1. You’re right, Linda. I don’t think there is an art to it – just do the best you can. That’s all anyone can ask of you…
    Your garden is just beautiful! I so enjoy your photos ~


  2. Your garden is stunningly beautiful! Cold and rainy here and would love some of your warm wind. Today’s post was particularly appropriate for me as I am putting off making an important decision….you are absolutely right. Even though I don’t comment every day, I read your words and am inspired by them……and you. Your family is so lucky to have you.


  3. Beautiful words, Linda. I was with a friend today who was complaining about having so many choices, and I thought of your beautiful blog.
