Trust yourself

You are right. Listen to me. You know. Look in your heart and you will know.

Tune out reason, tune out opinion. Tune out ‘the right thing’, that destroyer of dreams. Open your eyes and soul and start to believe.
If it’s hard, it’s right. if it’s scary, it’s right. If it takes effort, you know that it’s going to be worth it, on the other side, on the flip of the breath, the greener grass.

It’s easy to be tempted back to the easy way. The secure income, the mortgage, the car. The normal job. The ‘this’ll do’. To get back in that box and never want to look outside of it again, scared by open minds and freedom, no supports, no rules.

Life has a funny way of reminding you. A gentle nudge in the right direction. It’s all to easy to ignore but sometimes, just sometimes, something makes you stop and think. Take heed.

I just want to say, trust yourself. If something lights up your eyes, fills you with joy, if you get lost in flow and so excited by your ideas…then it’s so, so right for you.
If it’s the sensible option, fueled by that back breaking responsibility rather than true passion, then take a look inside. We know, in our heart of hearts, what we really want to be doing with our lives. Whether we see that as feasible right now depends on our outlook. We can find a million excuses why not…or a million reasons why.

We deserve to know ourselves, we owe it to our souls to trust our instincts. We deserve to be purposeful and to dream big. We deserve to know our dreams are not fanciful, that we think things for a reason.

We are the reason. We are the change. We are right. Follow your heart.

    1. Thanks Becs, wow weird timing! I think we all need to hear it every once in a while, we’re too hard on ourselves sometimes. Especially when we’re trying to grow outside what everybody else thinks is ‘normal’! Keep smiling, keep believing 🙂

  1. Such a timely post, Sal! I gave my month’s notice at work yesterday. I’m trusting myself to pursue something that will make me much happier. 🙂
