I would say that one of my greatest weaknesses is indecision and second guessing myself. I second guessed publishing last night’s post (as I always do when things get a little more personal) but now I know without a doubt that it was the right thing to do. Just through that one post I was able to connect with several friends and readers and it created an open forum for people to share things they needed to talk about. I want that for this blog. I want us to support each other and share both struggles and triumphs.
Let’s face it. Despite what your Facebook feed and Google Reader might suggest, life is not all babies, bowls of oatmeal, weddings, hardcore workouts and cupcakes. It’s a little more complicated than that. One of my favorite quotes ever is, “You can’t compare your life to everyone else’s highlight reel.” I could go on for days. We’ll talk about that later.
Another thing I second guessed was this color I painted my living room. It was Benjamin Moore’s Oyster Shell. In everyone else’s rooms, it seemed to be pale gray with a hint of blue. In my room it screamed baby boy nursery. I tried to live with it for three weeks and finally bit the bullet and paid to have it repainted and finally made my decision on the paint colors for the rest of the house. I’m glad I second guessed it and took my time with the other decisions because now I am so excited about the paint rather than it being a source of stress. Going home is so exciting because I can’t wait to see the progress.
There was NO second guessing adding this to my grocery cart. Eggnog season is my favorite (I’ve loved the stuff since childhood) and I love that they now make SilkNog. It’s the perfect addition to my oatmeal and overnight oats.
I blogged about Silk Nog last year with a recipe for holiday inspired oats. Check it out.
Another thing one never second guesses? Taco night. Sunday night tacos are pretty much an amazing way to end the weekend.

Are you a second guesser? What do you second guess? What do you NOT second guess?
