I have to say that I have learn't many lessons in my life, so many that one has to ask… how many more lessons can one person learn. I want to stay away from that thought though as someone told me recently that we bring into our lives what we most dread or think about… So what I say instead is… I cherish every new challenge that comes into my life as a lesson. It's because of these lessons that I am able to help others. How can I truly empathise with others when I have not lived through the experience?
So how do we choose to make better choices. What makes us act upon something quick without thinking, or make decisions after going through everything ten times… do you find yourself doing that? Asking everyone you know for their opinions on something, mulling it over and over in your head, and then not really knowing what choice to make.
The more we ask others, the more we share our concerns… the more likely we are to never making the decision that is right for us. Sure we have to learn by our mistakes, but wouldn't it be better if we could make all of our decisions with more ease?
I want to ask you if you would try something for me? Would you be willing to let your heart rule in the decision making? Just for a week or so? Yes I know your head is like having a mental flip out at present, just of the thought that you would let your heart rule the decision making 🙂 and what makes me say this, well it's how I am applying this in my own life.
Yes, it is true. I have started to allow my heart to rule more of my decisions and you know what in the beginning it was hard, my head wanted to rule, but I felt my head was making every decision on calculations associated with lots of questions… will this work for me? what will others think? what if I fail? The one thing I found was that when it was right for me, when it came from my heart, when it made me smile and my thoughts were happy. I knew I had made the right decision.
A decision from the heart will never do you wrong, well almost never… it allows you to make the decision from LOVE, like I said if it feels right, then 95% of the time it will be the right decision for you. Ok there may just be a few that sneak through, because your head is still fuming you let heart make most of the decisions… lol
I also know that some people who read this will not understand why I let my heart make the decisions. I allowed my head to make the decisions for too long… I felt anger, resentment, frustration and even guilt as my head took me through all these scenarios of what the outcome would be… but if I spent some quiet time thinking about the decision at hand… allowed my heart to sit with it, allowed my heart to process it. The outcome was 99% of the time the best choice for me.
Don't allow others to make your choices for you. Stand strong in the knowledge that you are able to make your own choices/decisions. Don't make people your scapegoat. Stand up for your belief in yourself.
