Being confident about choices

Well look at that, I always loved hand-drawn thumbnails, it makes me feel naturally aesthetic, you know xD.

Besides that, every choice I have made in the past 4-5 years has been great overall. Now what do I mean by that? I think as an individual one has to understand their thoughts, take responsibility and make good decisions.

Good Decisions (From my perspective):

  • Choosing Computer Science (Since I already know how to use the internet/computers and googling a lot) ✅
  • Picking Guitar as a Musical Instrument ✅
  • Building a Reading Habit ✅ (Check out my previous post)
  • Teaching Habit ✅
  • Tried a lot ✅
  • Find a career - where I could experiment with my creative and logical side ✅
  • Did a little bit of everything ✅
  • Being involved in communities ✅

Now thinking back, these small decisions helped a lot. If I might say. I met many amazing folks throughout my academics and travel. And every interaction made me a little better.

Now coming to the reality

Most of the time I suck! at things! - I don’t know about basic things like how to have small talk without talking about myself. I still have that problem lol - Even though I still ramble a lot about things - Usually it revolves ending talking about myself. Folks don’t say or point out anything about this. But I have this intuition like - Yeah! Yes! I’m drifting away from the main conversation.

When I’m thinking about this - I find myself at a point where, I don’t know where I’m going with this, or I don’t know what will do now. At first, it’s interesting to do all things at a time. Feeling that everything is fine - but it’s not at all fine.

Now this is not a burnout post or feeling down post or anything like that. I’m just trying to make a point here.

And the point is to be confident about making good decisions. Building habits, a system of your own. If you don’t trust yourself, your decisions, your choices. How can you bridge trust/communicate/bond with other folks?

Now I’m ending this post right here. I’m not going to tell you the magical way to trust your instincts. Because there isn’t one. It’s you and your thoughts, your actions, and your intuitions.
