When you’re stuck at a decision making cross road, follow what feels good. It really is that simple. If you can’t decide, go with the choice that doesn’t make you feel icky, doesn’t make you feel anxious, doesn’t make you feel less than yes.
We often get so caught up in what we think we should be doing. We make lists of pro’s and con’s but ignore how we would ultimately feel after we make the decision.
I just launched a side biz to do freelance online work for people too busy or not too tech savvy, I’ve tweaked my approach a few times since it’s initial inception because even though I could do all of the things I offer, not all of them lit my fire and if it doesn’t light your fire, you are less likely to do the kind of work that people will hire you again and again for, and recommend to their colleagues and friends.
This adage doesn’t just apply to choosing work you love, but to just about any decision you make. Women are blessed with an innate sixth sense that we are normally very in tune with, embrace that, listen to what your energy body is telling you. Sit with each option and see how it makes you feel when you think about it. Whichever one feels the best, that’s the one you go for, even if it doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t need to make sense rationally, but that good feeling will point you in the direction you need to go in your life in order to evolve.
Sometimes things will tick all the boxes on paper, but if it doesn’t feel good, it’s not a good choice. The cliché “go with your gut” is a cliché for a reason 😉
What decisions have you made recently based purely on the fact it felt good to do it?
