Tomorrow is my girl friend’s wedding…yeah!! I can’t even believe the last 1.5 years of planning has finally cumulated into these last few days…and she’s still so excited! Predictably, it hasn’t always been an easy road, with many adjustments and misunderstandings and smiles through the tears. But seriously, if it was easy, I don’t know that it would be worth it.
Here’s the thought going around in my brain today…is there a specific length of time that a person must go through in order to be sure that a decision is the right one? For example, my friend and her fiance have been best friends for many years and romantic partners for two. They got engaged a few months after they started dating – but that wasn’t a surprise to anyone. And now here we are, with the wedding day tomorrow! Have they been engaged long enough? Or were they in a relationship long enough before they got engaged?
I’m of the opinion that it doesn’t matter the length of time, it matters the quality of time. A decision is a decision and although some people take longer to make them than others, I don’t think there is a predetermined “perfect” amount of time a person needs to wait to execute on a decision – personal or professional. If it feels right and you’ve done your due diligence to make sure its an appropriate choice, do it. And if it’s the wrong choice, just make another one!
