8 Comments on Fidgety

I have found myself in quite the situation. Without giving away too many details, I find myself in the predicament of listening to my gut, knowing that it always pushes me in a direction for a reason, even if I don’t always understand it OR putting on my big girl panties, sucking it up and dealing with a situation that may be less than ideal but maybe that’s what you do when you’re an adult.

Which way would you go?


I was talking with a dear friend about this last week when she asked me “are you just fidgety?”


I thought I knew where she was going with it but wanted to make sure…”staying in one place too long? Stability. Permanency. This would mean being in one place for awhile and being tied down.”


Ding! Ding! Ding!


It’s not me. It’s not something that I’m good at and fidgety might be the perfect way to describe it. I move apartments after every lease; I make major moves every 2-3 years; and I’m always dreaming and strategizing some big project. I always wonder when the day will come that I feel content enough to stay in one place or to go somewhere that I feel is a commitment of time in that place. But the truth is, I may just be too fidgety for that.


Only time will tell so for now, I know that everything happens for a reason and I’ve just got to follow my gut. It always leads me in the right direction.


How do you make tough decisions?

    Girl, I am dealing with decisions like this right now too – and when they turn out… I will let you know how I dealt with them! HA AH AHA HA!! One second I listen to my gut, then I listen to my head the next and then I listen to my heart – ugh, this three way tug of war is EXHAUSTING! LOL!

    I’m pretty much the exact opposite! I get quite comfortable in my situations, even if they are the wrong ones. And tough decisions, hate them! Sometimes I will just wait and wait until a decision is made for me.

      I definitely don’t like tough decisions and some I DO put it off if I can help it, but eventually a decision must be made. Though as a friend of mine said to me the other day “some may argue that making NO decision is a decision.” …sit on that one for a minute. ha!
