Sometimes we go through life faced with difficult situations that require of us to make certain decisions.

Some of these decisions could be popular, while some could be unpopular.

Whatever decisions you make depend largerly on your character.

That in itself depends on your goals.

Some of these are personal because they only affect the individual.

Some personal decisions would eventually have either a direct or indirect bearing on others.

Say you have made decisions that have rendered you popular or unpopular.

But, no matter how you look at those past decisions now, it becomes a matter of course that they have had a lasting and visible impact.

I mentioned only just two types or categories of decision making that I believe make us who we are.

It matters not that you are a child or an adult, the fact is at that split second the decision is made, is when things go wrong or right.

For most people we always wish them the latter option because unpopular decisions tend to haunt one for a long time to come.

We have seen many instances where people made some of these decisions but at times we need to agree there are certain situations whereby people find themselves in those situations. People act at times unconsciously and think about the consequences later and by that time a huge damage has been done. I am you know of such real situations and could attest to. The only thing I want to leave you is what you would have done better if you had a second chance. We should also remember that in life there are sometimes no second chances.

Well the famous ones are the popular decisions and these mind you alone can cherish because they are quickly forgotten by the masses out there. Yes take for instance quitting drinking and people will forever be reminding you about the past(in my case).

Hahaha I am through that. You know if we could strive to always make those decisions that when we look back we feel good about. I know it is hard at times but hey life is a ball game and we need to manage how we decide at times.

So people my message to you this week as we tread through this year let us try and reason before we take any decision as these can make or break you.

Remember that any decision you take lives after you.
