There are times in your life when you have to make tough decisions. Decisions that may impact those you love and care about. It is during those times when you have to ask yourself if the choice that you are making is the best choice for everyone involved or if it is just the easiest choice. Recently, I discovered that sometimes the hardest choices that we make end up not really mattering. I'd heard the saying "It didn't matter" and I always thought that it should always matter. I think that's where I went wrong. My logic was flawed because there are times when it truly doesn't matter.
You could choose the plain water or the water with a hint of fruit and it doesn't matter. It won't change anything, it won't impact your health. Some could argue that the flavor matters, but does it really?
Of course, I am speaking of trivialities but the truth of the matter is the choice that I had to make was much more complicated than whether I wanted fruit infused water or not. Lives were at stake. It mattered. It felt like it should have mattered. It didn't matter.
Maybe I might look back on this post and say to myself "You got it wrong, it mattered". That's entirely possible. Until then, I will resolve myself that I did the best that I could do in an impossible situation but that at the end of the day it didn't matter.
