Tommy always had a hard time making up his mind and choosing anything.

“I don’t know if I picked the right berries. I can’t decide which ones to eat,” lamented Tommy.

Tommy the pigeon couldn’t decide what to eat or where to go. He couldn’t choose, always hesitated, and spent hours thinking.

Jimmy the hummingbird was Tommy’s best friend, but he was getting tired of the indecisiveness. The two birds missed out on many opportunities because Tommy couldn’t make a decision.

“I have to think of a way to help Tommy be more confident,” said Jimmy.

Jimmy made a plan that would force Tommy to make a decision to show him the benefits of being more confident in his choices.

“Tommy, we have to hurry! Your favourite, The Blue Songbirds, are doing a concert in the next forest, but they’re only selling a small number of tickets. We have to leave right now to get them,” announced Jimmy.

Tommy knew this was an incredible opportunity. He loved The Blue Songbirds and collected their music. However, he still hesitated because he knew the tickets for their concert would be expensive, so he wasn’t sure what to do.

Jimmy kept pushing Tommy to make a choice. He reminded Tommy that The Blue Songbirds would be going on a tour soon, so he wouldn’t be able to see them again for a long time.

“I can’t miss The Blue Songbirds. We have to get those tickets,” declared Tommy.

The pigeon and the hummingbird rushed to the next forest to get their tickets. Tommy had to make several quick decisions. He had to decide how he would pay for the tickets, which row of tree stumps he wanted to sit on, and if he wanted to pay extra for autographs. He managed to do all of these things without hesitating and was able to enjoy the concert.

Jimmy pointed out that Tommy was making progress, and Tommy learned the value of making a choice.

Moral: Having the confidence to make a decision can benefit you in many ways.



Tommy the pigeon struggled to make any decision. It was hard for him to choose one item or idea because he wanted to think about all of them.

Tommy’s hesitation prevented him from fully enjoying life.

Fortunately, Tommy’s friend, Jimmy, was able to see how his indecisiveness affected him. He came up with a brilliant plan to help him. With Jimmy’s encouragement, Tommy was able to enjoy a fun concert and learned the value of making a decision at the same time.

You may also be struggling to pick a path or choose a direction in your life. It isn’t easy to make decisions if you’re faced with many choices and hesitate to think about them.

However, decision-making is a crucial part of the adult experience.

Don’t let indecisiveness stop you from enjoying life and having amazing experiences! It’s important to learn how to make a choice, and sometimes you don’t have time to hesitate.

If you stop to think for too long, the opportunity may pass you by and never return.

The key is to find a balance between thinking and acting. The more you practice, the easier it gets.
