Thursday Thoughts #4: Decisions

A peacefulness follows any decision, even the wrong one.

Thursday Thoughts

(Please feel free to use this button!)

I love learning more about my fellow bloggers. So I created a weekly blog link up, which happens each Thursday. To do this, I post a word prompt the day before (on Wednesday so you can have your blog ready on Thursday).  I will also post next week’s word on the bottom of my own Thursday Thoughts post each week.

All you have to do to join in each week is to write a blog post about that this week’s word.  Come back here on Thursday (like today!) and enter your blog address into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!

Please note: If you don’t write a blog post and participate, then please do not put your website address in Mr. Linky. It’s only fair to other people. 


Each day we live is filled with decisions. Some are mundane, like mayo or mustard on your sandwich (both, I say!)?  Other decisions are ones that can change the course of your life. Recently, I blogged about our decision to officially begin IVF. That was a huge decision, and one that I hope will bring us a take-home baby.

If it doesn’t, then we will have some huge decisions to make on where our life will go. HUGE. I don’t even want to think about those decisions right now, because some of them would break my heart.

In the military side of things, it’s crazy because it feels like Huzzy just went on shore duty, but we are about 1/2 way through. That means in about one year, he will start shopping for orders. I’m not worried too much because I know it’ll be a job here on the same base (okay, I’m 99% sure, there’s always a possibility that it may not, but I’m not borrowing worries right now).  However, Huzzy will have to decide what type of submarine he wants to go on (if there’s a choice) and which one (again, if there’s a choice).

That decision will possibly be the last one he’ll ever make in the Navy as if he doesn’t make Chief or LDO, then he’ll be retiring in five years (and three months!). There won’t be enough time left for him to go back to shore duty, so he’d be extended on whatever boat he was on… so that would be about a four year sea tour (Lord help us, that’s a LONG damn time to be on a sea tour).

Of course, when he retires, he needs to decide what he wants to do for the rest of his life. He still hasn’t figured that out, but time is getting shorter.

What decisions are you facing in your life?

  1. Military decisions are always tough ones. My husband will have to decide if he wants to get out next year (at 11 years) or get out…. Big decisions.
