Are All Big Decisions Packaged Like This?

Although life is always changing, certain moments are a bit more defining than others. Some life-changing moments are planned, others happen when least expected, and some moments are just impossible to pass up. Embarking on a life-changing moment can be an extremely scary thing, regardless of how it comes to you. How do you know if you’re making the right decision?

I never thought I would ever fall in love. To be completely honest—I never wanted to. As a product of a “broken home” I wanted to avoid repeating the cycle at all costs. I took dating very lightly…usually laughing my way through the process. Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes I wanted to find someone I could call my own and just chill with. But it was never as important as achieving mother goals.

But now love is staring me in the face, and it hasn’t presented itself in the most convenient fashion. I’ll have to move to be with the person I love. Something I never thought I’d do, now comes with a challenge. Is this a sick joke?

In all honesty, I already know that I’m making the right decision to move. But I can’t deny that I’m equally as scared as I am excited. This is just something I never saw myself doing, but if I don’t, I know I will regret it for the rest of my life. Are all big decisions packaged like this?
