~The Power of a Quality Decision~

As we all know, a simple decision can CHANGE, and actually mark us, for the rest of our lives...

I am not going to camp on this aspect, however NEGATIVE~and sometimes emotionally-led~decisions can often lead to undesirable consequences later on in life...

On the other side: a RIGHT decision can lead us to a whole new place in life that we could never imagine!

Yes, there is great power in the choosing of our decisions.

As a Mom, I have opportunities each day to lead my kids, and model for them, (hopefully!) right decision making processes, and teach them to base their decisions on TRUTH.

As a homeschool family...
As a wife...
As a friend...

As a daughter...

In my health...

In my finances...

In my use of time...

On and on it goes!

I believe that making a simple, QUALITY decision can lead to a much desired result in life.

For example: deciding to no longer use your credit card, and NOT pay the full balance off every month, is a simple~though not always easy~quality decision. Yet, if you were to stick to this, you can save a LOT of unnecessary fees for borrowing money.

Another example: by deciding to exercise 3-4x's /week you will have made another quality decision that can obviously result in some personal benefits; possibly weight-loss, more energy and vitality, potentially better health. deciding to make a schedule for my week (I'd recommend a flexible one if you have kids!!) I can make FAR better use of my time, and hopefully be more effective in getting necessary tasks completed. deciding to make time for my friends (perhaps schedule a once per month fun night) I will feed better and healthier friendships! making a decision to spend time with my family... making a decision to grow in my spiritual life... learn to set personal goals of all kinds...

As you can see, there are a myriad of choices.

By choosing to make a QUALITY, simple decision, we can change our behaviour...which will change our habits...and eventually our destinies!!!

What decision do you need to make today? What goal do you need to stop and set right now??

  1. Hi Rach, I love this post. its encouraging and challenges me to think my decisions through. I also believe a quality decision need not be a BIG one. Its the small but 'quality' decisions too that can in the long term help us change.
    Great post
    God bless

    1. Absolutely! A small decision can lead to big results, depending on the nature of it.
      Thanks for sharing & stopping by :)

  2. You're so right. Each decision we face in a day has good or bad consequences and we don't often stop to think about what those implications might be. I needed this reminder, Rach. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. I think it is such a great reminder for all of us...especially myself! It is normal to blog to oneself??
      Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  3. GREat post. Linking in from A Holy Experience. Yes choosing... that is so important. Making good decisions is very important. We can choose to believe as well. God is always there - waiting for us to choose.
    Faith is a choice.

    1. Agree totally!
      Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  4. Very good advice, my friend. Thank you for linking to Playdates with God this week :)

  5. Love this, every decision we make will have a consequence. Good or bad.

    1. I totally wished it was only the good ones though! But as we grow, we can learn to make more and more of the right kind :)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Ah yes. And sometimes NOT making the decision is our downfall! I've been in some situations where any choice would have been better than none. We show our children how to be decisive and take action - and that's also life lesson well learned.

    Great post.

    1. Yes, I agree..passivity can be a big problem, especially in our society where we are expected to be quiet on many issues. Being decisive is something I am working on as well.
      Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Hi Karen,
      That's so exciting! Thank you so much for letting me know :)
      I did try to email you back but my server prevented me, I guess due to my configurations...anyway, this is easier then.
      Here's a lil about me:
      Homeschooling Mama of four children. Also, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist that works from home. I started blogging first in 2009 to journal my thoughts, and more recently in 2012, to connect with other Mothers out there. I enjoy blogging about a myriad of topics including: my adventures in homeschooling, parenting, food/recipes, and my faith journey.
      I'll be grabbing your button in a minute to post, tweet and pin!!
      Thanks again :)

  10. Very positive post. Congratulations on being featured on Lovin' The Readers Blog Hop. I am a new Follower of your Blog. Have a good weekend.

  11. Such a great post & great reminder how important it is to make the right decisions! Thanks for linking up at Motivating Monday at CEO of Me this week!

  12. Such a GREAT post! Priorities is a hard one for me! The decision to make the most and best of my time just doesn't quite get made as well as it should somedays, often many times a day. I love how you broke it down. There is always a consequence for our decisions, as we teach our kids. It's a privilege and sometimes down right frightening to have that much control over the direction our lives go in. So thank you for scaring me into taking my priorities more seriously this week! ;)

    And thanks for linking up with What He's Done Wednesday!

    1. Thanks Sarah for sharing your thoughts. I think it's a hard one for all of us...especially when there's so much going on in our lives (too much distraction!)
      Thanks for stopping by :)
