I’m fond of saying, “…back when I was young and dumb…” to refer to decisions and choices and habits I had when I was younger.
Younger meaning a couple years ago.
Maybe back to high school age…but still, it wasn’t all that long ago…
Either way, I joke that I’m older and wiser now.
And in a way, I guess I am. Hubs and I have grown up a lot in the last few years. We’ve made big decisions, we’ve planned a wedding, graduated, gotten jobs, got married, gotten more jobs, decided to quit jobs, selected and rented an apartment, managed a budget, learned to live together, moved away from friends and family, lost loved ones, gained new friends…
…it’s been a big year.
So, yes, we are wiser now.
But we still have a lot to learn.
We’re currently in the process of selecting a house and we are realizing just how hard it is to make these decisions that will affect us, majorly, for the next several years of our life. It’s a big commitment.
And it’s hard.
In the end, I guess we’ll never really “know” what to do.
But we will know all we can know.
That we need to talk about it, think about it, pray about it, and talk about it some more. And when we can be at peace with decision, we’ll know it’s right.
What about you? What sort of things do you “know?” And how do you know that you know you know?
(Awesomeness bonus points if you know what that reference is.)
