Recently someone asked me: how do you know where to go in life?
Immediately I started thinking about all the times in my life where I've had the privilege to make that choice:
How did I choose my career?
How did I know I wanted to study abroad?
How do I choose my life daily?
And you know what I realized? It's all about The Feeling.
Let me explain what I mean.
The feeling is when you think about doing something and everything in you screams Yes! Go! Do it! You have to GO/DO/TRY that!
For me, when I think about something I want to do I get this "just right feeling". It's like something inside of me is telling me to go for it. That's what it is!
Now don't get me wrong, It doesn't mean you don't feel afraid to do it. It doesn't mean it will be easy and smooth all the way. But the greater part of you knows you'll be OK. It knows it will serve you.
The feeling is pure universal wisdom. Available to everyone who gets quiet enough to "listen".
Remember what Oprah says:
When you don't know what to do, do nothing. Be still.
Make stillness a part of your daily routine and be comfortable in it. The world is loud and crowded, we need stillness to listen to ourselves. But it is a practice, not a given.
I hope this post serves you and gives your day a bit of light.
See you in the next one!
