What is the most important decision you've made in your life and why?
The most important decision I have ever made in my life was to get on with it. There are decisions of equal importance, such as deciding to apply myself to my studies as both a school and a university student, deciding to become a CSI, to take care of my aunt, no matter what and maybe even to actually marry my wife but they all stem from that one decision. My past has not dealt me many cards which under a common, uneducated eye could be deemed as good happenings, instead it has given me many cards which to the same type of eye can be called bad or even awful happenings. Although I am not going to divulge such information to you on these occurrences I will lead this writing in a different direction by giving my reasons for my decision, something which, although different from just the plain, basic, hard facts shares some likewise similarities with what it puts forth. I have had to get on with my life because if I did not the consequences would have been highly unsatisfactory; if I had stopped and given up on life when I was younger then I would not be where I am today. Even after I assured my position as a CSI with a steady rising rank I still had to get on with my life despite what had happened in the long gone past along with the more recent past happenings.
Because of this determination I gained the position as Supervisor a year clear of Grissom and because I had worked for it, not let one of my co-workers be the catalyst for the death of another. No Dayshift personnel ever under my jurisdiction let alone for that matter the Nightshift I have been unfortunate enough to be forced to briefly take care of has ever died. Surely there have been minor mishaps when the police tramp all over the scene without taking proper precautions but the Dayshift record is as clean as the people who work it’s hours and take it’s title in their rank. Getting on with my life has served me well because I have not wallowed in the self pity of what might be called a disaster stricken existence or any other emotion that might be associated or expected, instead I have learned from it, use it’s examples to become stronger and smarter. Unlike some who have been placed in possibly similar situations I have made the right decision by continuing without letting it affect the way I live my life or deal with what it presents.
