I had spent months staring at a photo I took on the Thai island of Koh Phag Ngan many (full) moons ago. I had tacked it to the wall of my cubicle and had been letting my mind wander to the soft, sandy beaches of the the island paradise and the feel of the warm sun on my skin as I sat on the porch of my beach-side bungalow, eating pad thai and drinking fruit shakes. Sounds like heaven, right?
I have always had difficulty in making decisions, half paralysed by the prospect of making the wrong choice. But no decision is still a decision to accept the status quo (and generally stay miserable). You are what stands in your way of happiness, so it’s time to do something about it.
