One example was several years ago as I was getting ready to leave my job and go on a month long road trip alone. Everything I had been taught told me that it was not wise to buy a new vehicle when I had no idea where the money would come from in a few weeks. Yet there was a voice inside me saying now was the time and I was supported. I'm thankful to say that voice was correct and I have truly enjoyed my new (to me) vehicle.
Once again with the shifts happening in my work I am faced with some questions on how to proceed and what future adventure to put my money toward. There is the next level of certification, there are complementary services I could train in, or there is the beautiful option of simply giving myself a small bonus. There is no right or wrong answer, merely choices that need a decision.
I'm grateful to have so many options. I'm grateful to know I am supported. I'm grateful to sit in meditation today so that I can calmly see the options and which is best for me right now. And I'm grateful to know I will find an answer that is right for me.
I'm grateful for all the adventures that have led me to this point in my life. I'm grateful for past situations that have taught me to trust my own judgement and inner voice even when it opposes "logic" or what I have been taught. And I'm grateful for the amazing family and friends that stand by me and the decisions I make.
Think of a time you had a decision to make that what you felt was right may have differed from others' opinions. Did you feel confident in trusting that inner voice? What was the outcome? Is there anything your inner voice has been telling you that you have been ignoring? If so, why?
May today bless you with clear decisions. May you be led in the direction that is best for you and may you find joy and confidence in that journey.
I will be blogging tomorrow but then I will be taking a two week sabbatical to be with my husband to celebrate our new marriage. Any emails or messages I receive will be returned when I get back, as I am completely "unplugging" for this time. Thank you and have a beautiful day!
