“The inspiration you seek is already within you. Be silent and listen.” — Rumi
We seek answers and advice from outside ourselves. Friends, family, those more experienced in what we are going through. But more often than not,
You already know what you need to do.
Making hard calls is one of the most toughest things we have to face. Do you go with what’s safe, or what’s true to you? Do you take a leap of faith and put yourself out there, or do you suppress yourself and suffer in silence?
Not making the hard calls is the easiest way to delay them in the short term, but non-decisions ruminate. They fester and consume your every thought. Consider indecision. By paralyzing yourself from making a decision, or by postponing it again and again, not only do you create unnecessary stress in your life, you end up making the worst decision you can make: doing nothing.
When has sitting on your hands done anything for you? When has not speaking up actually turned out in your favor?
Every time you make a non-decision, you suffer.
Holding in your emotions.
Doing nothing, Not speaking up for yourself or others, even though your gut and every fiber of your being is telling you to.
Reluctantly choosing the ‘have to’ path of life, instead of the ‘dream’ path of life.
The gut is mightier.
Give yourself a moment and listen to what your body and soul already knows.
You already have the decisions you want and need to make. Not it’s time to do the work and take it to heart with sound footing and action.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
