Carrying our theme about decisions into this week for just a minute…this quote caught my eye recently and got me thinking. Last week, we talked about challenging choices, and how they sometimes aren’t as much of a struggle as you might think they are; it’s just a question of checking in to your intuition – your “gut” – to acknowledge what it’s telling you to do. But once you do that, what next? Once you’re honest with yourself about what you want, how do you move forward, especially if the path your intuition is telling you to take is slightly off the grid?
I think our girl Amelia may have been on to something here. Depending on the choice, you may need to lean on your intuition to keep you going, to give you the courage to turn that hunch into your reality. Listening to your intuition can give you not only clarity, but also strength, purpose and, yes, tenacity, if you continue to stay connected to it. Easy? Maybe not. Important? Always, as long as living authentically is something you’re interested in.
Have a (mindfully) courageous week.
