Anyone else feeling the excess busy-ness of what comes with the ending of college?! This year I had been a bit more prepared, with being mindful in advance of what I had been carrying on work wise at this time of year. My aim was to be present for whatever the kids have going on, and we’ve got far more of it this year with Jude finishing Grade 6. There are numerous parties and ceremonies to be had!
I almost talked myself out of doing this and I am so glad I did not.
This week I said yes to something I had been having a strong gut feeling to not do. I understood exactly in the moment that this was a”gut feel” and the decision was a complete no. AND I almost said yes! At least in the past the reason for not following it would be around not knowing for certain if it was a”gut feel”, but I have begun to learn fortunately what especially that feeling feels like. Even still, our self can be so persuasive about doing the opposite with showing us all types of reasons not to trust our gut. Thankfully my husband has learned to trust my gut – perhaps better then me occasionally – and understood as a result this was a no. The world also supported us mercifully.
It will save time
It will save money or provide more cash
It is more comfortable not to say anything
It is easier
Here is the kicker though… it always comes back to bite us in the ass. Think about all the times you have said yes to something knowing it was not the perfect thing to do. It never works out how you want it thought it would. All those reasons I mentioned previously, don’t pan out. Something happens to interrupt the arrangement / flow and it ends up causing plenty of play and headaches instead.
We have to be strong!
Bear in mind those experiences you have had when you try to talk yourself into it next time. Knowing it is not worth it. It may feel glamorous up front, but rest assured it is going to end up in anything but glamour.
Let’s also become clear on what that feeling even feels like. Where did you believe understanding in your body? Now clearly specify the feeling (we are going somewhere with this I guarantee ). What size is your feeling? Is there a colour related to the feeling? Is the color transparent or solid?
Where did you think part in your system? What size is your feeling? Is there a colour related to the feeling? Is the color transparent or solid?
Now you understand the difference.
When you have that gut feeling you need to then practice expecting it. Follow the guidance knowing in case you do not it will back fire.
Also know, that this is the exact same feeling you will have when the world demonstrates how you can create your goals and dreams. You may experience and idea or opportunity and will”understand” this is the ideal way, even if your head is trying to talk you out of it. It is all about taking that motivated action anyhow.
It is pretty cool.
