      I am starting to think it's a matter of simply determining not to question after the fact and go into any decision with that plan and understanding that there is not always one right choice. I make sure I have researched options and remind myself of that too. I also practice with little decisions letting go when I catch myself second guessing (e.g. Which dress to where to work).
