We’ve all heard it said before… Trust. Your. Gut.
Yet, if you’re anything like I am you may sometimes feel like you’re not sure what your gut is telling you. What follows can be a great deal of uncomfortability and even anxiety.
The reality, however, is often that you DO know what your gut is telling you. But, you just don’t want it to be true. So you may chalk it up to oversensitivity, overreaction, or even think you’re paranoid. And you push onward ignoring the signs intended to protect you.
The next thing you know, you’re asking yourself… How did I get (back) here?
NO shame. NO blame. Here are simple choices that I have found lead – eventually – to freedom.
If you’re truly ready to be happy, skip to #2.
1. Do what you want to do. If you’re not ready to let go of fear and old ways of thinking
and doing things… have it your way. Give yourself permission to push, pull, kick, scream and when you’ve done that enough (I mean REALLY DONE) move on to #2.
2. Assume the best and set your mind on that. I’m not talking about living in fantasy,
rather the idea that a healthy, positive outcome will unfold.
3. When in doubt do nothing. If you’re done with #1 and can’t quite wrap your mind or
willingness around #2 — embrace doing nothing — even if you’re not sure that you’re
going to like how things turn out.
For how long you may ask? As long as it takes to be free.
If you want to be happy and truly connect with the freedom of joy; learning to let go of outcomes is a now or later proposition. Surrender now, or surrender later.
I wish you all the willingness to let things be different. I pray that you have a desperation that makes it possible to shift into the person that you are intended to be. And I believe that you can flourish by simply learning to trust your gut.
Simple, but not always easy. Thank goodness we’re in this together!
And remember, I am definitely in your corner…
