    Decisons are made right at this very moment. Are you making your decisons yourself?

    Is someone else really making your decisions for you? Are there factors out of your control that really are influencing the decisions you make?

    I have to make all my own decisions, it can be very difficult at times having to shoulder all the responsibility myself. Sometimes circumstances force me into making decisions and plans for the future that I really don´t want, but have to be practical about. I do believe  that there are times when my guardian angels are helping me along though, and sometimes that they are the one´s steering my life in the right direction, not me.

    It is important to know what one’s preferences are and try to implement these as much as possible.  But there is wisdom in letting the situation decide for you.  This is because we only imagine we are in control of things but in truth there are a lot of things outside of our control. 
    The way to peace is to understand what the moment is asking of us, not what we are asking of the moment.  This may entail relying exclusively on your own decision when it is impossible to obtain others' inputs or soliciting others' opinions to gain a more complete picture of what the situation is calling for, before coming to a final decision.

    Yep.. but sometimes I also asked for opinions of my parents and loved ones especially the decision will involve them.

    Usually I take my own decision myself, but some time some decisions are influenced by my family and of course by circumstances as well.

    I prefer to make my own decisions but I'm aware we all need help with our decisions sometimes.  Yes, I guess you would say I'm making decisions.

    I gather valuable suggestions or opinions but in the end, I make my own decision.

    I always look into the perspective of third party's view so I can understand why before making my decision.

    It is better to look into all sorts of situation or factor before making decision so that you know it is the right one.

    Being the head of the family, I have to make most of the decisions myself, even though I usually let the other know what is going on, specially if the decision is going to involve them also, I am doing that in order to be able to make a better decision after consultation.

    I make decisions all the time.  I accept responsibility for the outcome of my decisions and just as I am aware of my responsibilities, I acknowledge that others are responsible for the decisions they make.  Some decisions they make reduce the options available to me.  This reduction of options can create the appearance that a decision I then make, is forced or influenced, however I still accept responsibility for my decisions.  Even when I do nothing, this is still a choice and I am responsible.

    Unfortunately, yes. Love your Snoopy cartoon, because that's the way I feel most of the time! Actually, I probably make more right than wrong, but those wrongs can be some doozies. Learned long ago, make my decision myself for me or nothing would work out right. Not selfish; have given my family and friends nightmares over some they call wrong, but I call right because it helped someone else. There are few I truly regret!
