Grape or strawberry, bacon or sausage, water or tea. We make a thousand tiny choices a day, many of them uneventful ones. Decisions made in the blink of an eye that hardly even make a ripple in the pond.
I mean, you can’t really say it matters whether you put grape or strawberry jam on your toast. That particular choice isn’t critical unless one of them pops up with a food contamination warning, and what are the odds of that. Just grab a jar and enjoy the sugary deliciousness on warm buttery bread.
Bacon or sausage? Neither’s all that good for you, so is there really a difference between those breakfast meats? I hear there’s a point difference in Weight Watchers but other than that it’s all fair game. Enjoy.
Then there’s water or tea, coffee or milk, pick a beverage, any beverage. It’s all liquid, right? Okay, some carry a helpful caffeine content, but mostly you’re just looking for something to wash down breakfast. It’s a toss away decision.
It’s exhausting to obsess over every single thing. Can you do it? Sure. You can make yourself crazy deciding the morning snack, what sweater to wear, where to read your news that day. Do I go down this street or that one to get to the store? For heaven’s sake, just let it all go. There’s enough big stuff in the world to worry over.
Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “choices.” Base your post on the subject of making small, uneventful choices. Enjoy!
