The Next Right Thing
When we have a decision to make, what we want more than anything is peace, clarity, and a nudge in the right direction. If you have trouble making decisions because of either chronic hesitation or decision fatigue, Emily P. Freeman offers a fresh way of practicing familiar but often forgotten advice: simply do the next right thing. This soulful practice will help you clear the decision-making chaos, quite the fear of choosing wrong, and find courage to finally decide without regret. Whether you’re in the middle of a major life transition or are weary of the low-grade anxiety that daily life can bring, Emily helps create space for your soul to breath so you can live with God at a gentle pace and discern your next right thing.
I’m in the middle of transition. I’m in the awkward place between graduation and walking hard core into what’s next. Decisions are abounding and the unknown is daunting to me. I don’t want to make a wrong move; there seems to be so much at stake. When this happens, I tend to stay frozen in place, and most of the time I end up compromising on what I believe and truly want to go after. Through The Next Right Thing, Emily has not only given me permission to pause but also believe that I can walk forward one step at a time. Looking around it seems that everyone has just magically gone from step A to B easily, but it’s not true; not everything is how it seems. It takes thought, faith, and trust to do the next right thing, and it takes time. Not everything is zip bang boom, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something we can each do today. I am believing that the small moves I’m making today, every decision and pursuit of my dreams, will lead me to what’s next; I just need to keep doing the next right thing. This book has helped me calm down and breath amid this transition. If you are struggling with making your next move or frequently experience decision fatigue or are not sure what you should do next, The Next Right Thing is super encouraging, and I know it will be on my shelf for years to come.
