31 Days to Building Your Dream Home:: Don’t Second Guess Yourself

If you’ve already started the process of renovating or building your house and making decisions, you know that there are times that you second guess your decisions.

Should I have gone with a different tile for our shower or should I have chosen different knobs for our kitchen? These might be questions you ask yourself weeks later after making what seems like such a permanent decision.

While some people are more decisive than others, those of you that are indecisive might be paralyzed with fear of making the wrong decision.

Here’s the thing, you could spend weeks, months really, debating back and forth about some of the decisions you will be faced with.

Don't Second Guess Yourself

The truth though? There is no wrong decision.

A few years down the line will you wish you had done this or that differently? Maybe. But, at the end of the day, you have to just go with your gut and make the decision that feels right at the time.

You have no way of knowing whether your tastes will change or whether your knob or cabinet color choice will go out of style. Pick things you love right now and what makes you feel the most comfortable.

Not second guessing myself is something I learned way before we started our renovation. When it came to wedding planning, I was faced with a lot of decisions and I could have gone back and forth forever trying to decide what flowers to go with or what music to play during the ceremony.


But, for my own sanity and for the sanity of those around me, I made relatively quick decisions and stuck to them.

So when it came to our house that’s the same philosophy I took.

Some of the decisions you will have to make can be quite expensive which can be daunting and scary. Narrow your choices down to the things you love and like the most, pick something and stick with it.

You don’t need to see every granite slab, tile material or appliance the world has to offer. Pick one vendor/store, a select a set of materials or brands and pick your favorite.

I know this all might seem easier said than done, but it’s something you have to do to avoid major stress and headache.

In the end, yes this is a big investment and you are probably shelling out a good bit of money, but it’s just a house. Feel blessed to be in a position to build your dream home and embrace the fact that you can’t make the perfect decision all the time.
