“The eternal refrain of decision is: Today, today.” Søren Kierkegaard
Sometimes indecisiveness throttles our forward momentum. We can’t decide what to do, so we dither about on the edge of possibility. When my brother and I recently visited Windsor Castle Park in Smithfield (Virginia) we encountered this blue heron in the marsh shallows near the trail.
When Mz. Blue Heron did not move (for what seemed like an eternity) we decided to move ourselves onward. 25 or so minutes later we came back down the trail to find Mz. Blue Heron in the EXACT SAME PLACE.
Then – voila – a decision was made!
“A decision raises us with a shock from the slumber of monotony. A decision pronounces its blessings upon even the weakest beginning, as long as it is a real beginning. The archenemy of decision is cowardice. Cowardice and time always find a reason for not hurrying, for saying, “Not today, but tomorrow;” whereas God in Heaven and the eternal say: “Do it today. Now is the day of salvation.” Søren Kierkegaard
grace, peace & decision grooves
