Have you ever caught yourself making a decision that you didn’t whole-heartedly want to commit to? Perhaps someone gave you advice or maybe there was an expectation set months before about something.
Today’s episode is all about making decisions that you actually feel good about. It’s trusting that inner gut and knowing that you made the right call for you.
“We all have inner wisdom and you know what is best for you.”
So why don’t we use this supposed guru ability? I promise it’s there, you just have to unlock it again. I’ve learned over the years (more so recently) that if I’m not slowing down and taking the time to get clear on what’s truly right for me, I’m scattered and super indecisive.
Did you catch that? Slow down and give yourself space – both physically and mentally. (Confession… those words may or may not be more for me than you as I am taking my own advice daily.) For me that’s taking long walks, going for a run or just going somewhere quiet to connect with my own thoughts. And keep in mind that it can take as little time as 15-60 minutes. Even if it’s not clear in that amount of time, see what pulls at your heart even just a little.
I’m not gonna lie. Some answers will come quicker than others. And often “sleeping on it” helps the most (science proves it)! Regardless of how quickly the answers come, know that you are the expert on YOU. Repeat the following phrases to help reinforce this notion.
“I have an inner guide. I have the wisdom within.”
Know that wisdom comes in many different forms and at the most random times. Learn what things make you feel good and that all is right with your world. After all…
“You are the smartest person you know when it comes to you.”
