Today I Made a Decision.

Today I made a decision.
I've read articles.
I've observed behaviors and emotions.
I've watched commentaries.
I've seen my acquaintances argue.
I've researched information.
I've talked to my friends.
I've analyzed and reviewed my options.

Today I made a decision.
In fact, I'd say I made an informed decision.
"Making an informed decision requires that you work with both facts (actual data) and emotional information, and that you take steps to mitigate the effect of ingrained bias. Doing so requires that you commit to mastering all your senses and intelligence so that, in chaotic decision-making environments, you'll be able to balance data with open-minded experimentation and stay sensitive to cues that other decision-makers will miss."
"It's really easy to fall prey to doubt or to rationalize your decision. If you're feeling fearful, you may think you have only one option or no options. In climates of high fear, when the rational dominates, making an informed decision requires that you achieve a calmer state of mind so that you can access your higher mental functioning."  (credit )

Yes, today I made a decision...... and successfully put that decision into action.
Voting is a precious right and a serious responsibility. I realize it is also a very personal and private one. We do it by secret ballot in America for a reason.
