I’m a Libra.
Anyone who knows Libras knows we’re known for being indecisive. This indecision isn’t really because of procrastination as some think – but more because we can see pros and cons to EVERYTHING. We tend to spend a great deal of time trying to weight things out much to the frustration of those who love us.
In my 20’s I really struggled with a few MAJOR decisions- should I stay separated from and divorce my then husband? Should I move to TX? Should I continue with my conversion to Judaism after 3+ years?
(Those answers were – yes, yes and no BTW)
On top of all of this weighing was my belief that I needed to make the RIGHT decision in order to please G-d. I truly felt like if I made a wrong decision there could be DIRE consequences – and that fear kept me in limbo.
I talked to my youngest sibling and he said something that really helped me. He told me that I should just follow my first mind. Later I spoke to a Rabbi and he told me I could always make a different decision if my first one didn’t work out.
I had always felt in some way that:
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

Yah – that what I thought, life was an Eminem song…LOL
But at that time (about 12 years ago) I realized something pretty powerful.
That if I ended up in a less than desirable outcome – I could always CHOOSE AGAIN.
In other words, even if I take a wrong turn, I can find another route to wherever it is I’m trying to go.
If I steer my vessel in the wrong direction, I can find a map and chart out a new course. Stopping is not an option. I will find my way as long as I keep my eyes on the prize.
That is why I strive to make each step count. A positive attitude helps me move forward and, even when I am unsure of where I am, I am not lost. Instead, I choose to become a trailblazer.
When I come to a fork in the road I trust my intuition to guide me. Being spontaneous in this way helps me release my inner self and experience success in a new way. Spontaneity gives me freedom.
Missing a turn causes me no panic because I know that I have countless options; I am not limited to only one way. A wrong turn may lead me to find a new way. The opportunity to explore the unknown is a turn on.
Although it feels daring to get off the fast-paced highway of life and take the scenic route, detours can be worthwhile because they lead me to discover the beautiful things in life that I otherwise may have missed. The road less traveled is filled with the most stunning sights.
Flexibility allows me to prosper despite failure. Being flexible gives me the strength to keep going when I would rather stop.
So what about you dearest? I’d love to hear your answers to these questions
1. What do you do when you reach a dead end?
2. How might you become less rigid and more flexible?
3. What changes can you make to ensure that you enjoy the journey just as much as the end reward?
