Is this what mid-life crisis is like?

When I decided to quit my job, I promised myself I'd pursue my long-time dream of being my own boss. I have big plans! Travel! Rock and roll! But two days into my "retirement", I get an offer that's really, really, really hard to resist. I don't know what to do. On the one hand... back to my comfort zone, and in a prestigious organization. On the other... an uncertain future, but freedom.

I know this isn't even remotely close to being a bad problem to have, but why these forks in the road, universe? Can't you just give me one straight, well-lit path to follow?
