There are so many times in life when we have to make decisions that have no right or wrong answer. We search our hearts and do our research, hoping to find the answer that is the best answer. And we don’t know what the right decision until we are in the midst of whatever choice we eventually make.

As painful as it is when I have to make these decisions, it is even more painful to watch someone you love have to make a decision where neither choice seems right yet neither choice seems wrong. Tonight, I watch Izzie break down in tears because she does not know which gym she wants to attend. She had a tryout at a new gym and loved it because they work harder and she wants to work harder. At the same time, she doesn’t want to leave her old gym because she will miss it. I hate watching her be torn. She will be great no matter where she ends up. And I am so proud of her for taking a risk and trying something new.

  1. “Should I stay or should I go?” Such a hard question, and it sounds like your little one has two good choices – what a gift!


  2. Izzie’s decision will be the right one whatever she chooses because of this… “because they work harder and she wants to work harder.” Izzie is not afraid of hard work and that will serve her well inside and outside of whichever gym she lands in. Good luck Izzie!
