Sometimes you make a decision and you feel you have to see it through, or sometimes you make a decision and you regret making that choice; yet, now there is no turning back. The underlying regret or uncertainty can cause all sorts of turmoil in your life. To begin with, there is the emotional stress you feel about having to stay the course despite your desire to quit; the physical toll can be debilitating; and there are also the spiritual as well as financial tolls to be considered.
Unfortunately, there are some decisions that you make that you can NEVER change. In those situations you just have to pray to God to give you the strength to carry on and or ask for forgiveness. No one likes to think of themselves as a quitter; yet, there are times in life when the best course of action is to quit. If you have examined all the pros and the cons of quitting versus carrying on and the evidence favors quitting, then it is best to quit. However, instead of thinking of it as quitting, think of it as making a choice to explore other options.
Yet, that is often hard for many people, especially when you have invested years and large sums of monies to pursue a goal. But consider this, is it worth carrying on along this path if all you feel is stress and unhappiness? Would it not be better to call it quits and give yourself the opportunity to pursue something else and perhaps find the peace and happiness you so desire?
CHANGE CAN BE SCARY IF YOU HAVE THE WRONG PERSPECTIVE It can sometimes be scary to think of changing course, especially as you get older; however, there is a time and a season for everything in life. Sometimes the time has come for a season to end and a new season to begin and you will miss out on the beauty of the new season if you refuse to let go. I have been a physician for twenty-three years and becoming a physician was my dream since I was four years old, according to my mother. I have enjoyed being a physician and I would like to think I made a difference in the lives of many of my patients; however, I feel that change is in the air. At this age it is scary; however, strangely enough I am excited at the prospect of what the next season will bring. I look forward to the challenge and embrace it fully because I know within my heart that God has never steered me wrong.
To live a life of abundance requires letting go with both hands and trusting God fully, and that is what I came to realize this year. The fears and doubts are still there; however, I will trust my God to guide me in this new chapter of my life.
