I apply the principles of Step Five. I tell God, myself and another human being the decision that I have made and then sit back and see how it "feels." If I am still in turmoil about the decision, chances are that I have not made the right one, or don't know all the options yet.
However, if I get a feeling of peace about it, it usually means that I have made the right decision and I am right in the middle God's will for my life.
Like they say, few decisions are ever permanent. It's okay today for me to make a decision and if it turns out the be the wrong one to back up and apply the Step 10 principle and admit it was wrong and get it right the next time.
I'm so thankful this program has given me these tools that I can apply in "all my affairs."
