obstinate determination


I am intuitive, visceral, emotional, spontaneous, and timid.

I think I think through before I decide, but I often find out that I didn’t or missed a lot of details.

I chose to get a job; I left Japan; I quit my job; I decided to stay here. I constantly wonder why I made those decisions.

Nonetheless, once I decide, I stick with my decisions. So, add stubborn to the list.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Decisions, Decisions.”
“How are you more likely to make an important decision — by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?”

    Sounds like your mode of decision making is working for you. Another great illustration, Nelkumi. http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/08/31/seer/

    I think that the older we get, the more we think to make decission. we used our gut instead when we’re a child, weren’t we?

  6. Anyone who sees your photo of your three-year-old self in kimono in Japan knows you were ALWAYS a stubborn girl. But you turned out very well.

  7. Sometimes some decisions are made just because.
    And hopefully they are for the best. We make decisions in life that eventually lead us to where we belong 🙂

  8. I am one, and amore is another. But we choose to use ‘stubborn’ when we don’t like it in another. Otherwise it’s ‘obstinate’ or ‘determined’, like in your title. And yet I like us. We go places and reach them too.
