A blueprint for making scary choices

In early 2021 I made the scariest decision of my life — I decided that I was going to stop waiting to find a partner and instead I would have a child by myself. My little boy is now 1 year old, and my life path looks completely different than I ever thought. We all are faced with overwhelming decisions in our lives. How do we know what choice is right for us? Through my own journey I've developed a rubric for evaluating these scary choices — whether professional or personal — and I hope that sharing these lessons might be helpful for you.
