When it comes to decisions,

I recommend putting everything on the table–

and by everything,

I mean everything that it is possible

to be aware of pertaining to the decision–

and contemplating the table.

Sit quietly before the table,

looking it over,

taking it in,

becoming fully aware of the contents of the table.

Simply sit with that awareness

until you feel in your body that you know what is there,

then get up and walk away.

Don’t think about the table any more.

Be free of the table.

Allow the part of you that you are unconscious of

have the table and its contents.

Ask that part of you to speak to you

when it has something to say,

and turn your attention to part of you that you are conscious of

tend to other matters.

Don’t worry about the decision–

don’t think about the decision.

Trust the part of you that you are unconscious of

to work with the table

while you take care of business on the conscious level.

And wait for the light to come on.

Yo me voy a encargar de que mis hijos nunca se sientan como me siento yo. Sin importar lo que les guste, los amigos que tengan, la carrera que elijan, como vistan o quien les guste. Yo les voy a amar tal cual, no dejare que sientan que me han decepcionado, porque eso jamás será posible. Dejare que me digan lo que sienten y los escuchare sin juzgarlos, no quiero imponerles una idea, ni que piensen de otra forma si no coinciden conmigo. No dejare que lloren por frustración, ocultar sus heridas y fingir estar siempre bien. Haré todo por que mi familia sea feliz y no solo finja serlo frente a la sociedad.

3. Who can I talk to who’s been in my shoes?

4. What are the likely outcomes of each choice and decision?

5. What is the worst thing that could happen; what is the best thing that could happen?

6. Am I making this decision for myself, or am I choosing to please other people?
