How This Decision Making One Step at a Time is Working for me

A map for decision making gone awryNancy Smeltzer, MFA

Having written about how I had publicly resolved in my last posting to make decisions one at a time, I decided to make a list of some of the decisions that I made before this post was published. The first that came up was whether to go for a walk or mow the leaves that are started to cover up my lawn. Both would get me outside in the sun, and give me some exercise. However, when I looked at the rest of the calendar, I saw that I had another client that night, I needed to get the trash down the hill, and the next day, I needed to have some more medical tests done, so lawn/leaf mowing it was because that was shorter.

However, I find that my life on the surface is a metaphor for what’s going on beneath, and thinking about several aspects at once seemed to be going back to my multi-tasking, “not enjoying the moment” days. I get LOTS of things done that way, but what do I have to show for it that feeds my soul? In other words, what’s my goal here.

Right now, my major goal is to regain my health. Since I’m functioning on only a 4% immune system capability, the next big health issue could do me in. I had that brought home to me this past weekend, when I facilitated a workshop and gave a birthday party for  a friend the next day. I did a great job on both activities, but now I’m paying for it by spending most of the morning in the bathroom.

So for me, right now, my decision making revolves around…. do I write this blog, or do I take a nap? Do I mop the kitchen floor, or do I take a nap? (I think that you can see a pattern going). So for me, right now, this decision making, one step at a time, is a mixed bag. I really am trying to not worry about what the future will bring or plan too many things at once. Even that is a big change for me, who used to like to have the entire project as planned as possible. I’ll keep you posted on how this decision making process goes for me.

How about yourself? How do you make your decisions and how do you feel that the process works for you?

About Nancy Smeltzer

I'm passionate about long distance spiritual and alternative healing, having had a successful practice now for over ten years. My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
