Decisions Are Hard


School is right around the corner, a little more than a month away till I'm back in the swing of a full time schedule. I've been on the track to becoming an elementary school teacher for a year or two now and I've loved most of it. I love the kids, I love their excitement and enthusiasm and I love being able to see the progress that they make from when I first arrive in their classroom to when I leave at the end of the semester.

There are also some things I don't like, but I could get past them, right? 

After spending this past week at the book event with my parents, and seeing the impact that they have as both magazine editors and publishers, I started to think that I might be happier working in their atmosphere. I have always had an interest in books, I considered once being an English major. I enjoy listening to people who talk about their passion for writing and trying to understand what they want help with in reaching their dreams as authors. Everyone was incredibly nice to me all weekend, they had nothing but good things to say about my parents and the work that they do. I have always been personable and have always had the ability to work with others with ease. 

At the same time, I'm technically in my senior year of college. Is it too late to make a change? Will I regret it later if I don't continue on towards my path to becoming an elementary school teacher? What if something doesn't work out?

When I have a big decision to make I always weigh the pros and cons. But with a decision like this I feel like I could choose either one and be happy, so I am faced with a dilemma and I don't have much time to decide. Obviously, there is no crystal ball to tell me what the right decision is or which direction I should go in, but I'm a believer in signs and I hope something will lead me to the right path. 

How do you make big decisions about your future?
