A lot of the time it's not pretty, because choosing what's important for me does not necessarily bind well with people of different opinions. But! In the end, I am almost always happy with the decisions I've made.
It's not to say that I don't take other people's thoughts and feelings into account - I do. Especially when it comes to my husband and my children, there are a lot of "middle ground" decisions. A lot!
But in the end, I always ask myself if it's something I can happily live with, because if I can't, then... well, I can't.
It's nice to live and be happy. I am.
