Peace and Possibilities

Jul 29, 2020

When you know, you know.

About a job, about a person, about a house.  When you know, you know.

You may experience it as a nagging.  You may experience it as a nudge.  You may experience it as a tree falling on your house.  Or you may experience it as you asking a million people what they think about so and so, or this place, or your role, or your problem.

But deep inside, when you really get quiet, and you finally ask yourself the question, without distractions…you know.

So, why do we fumble so much?

Ah, one of those all-consuming questions.

My guest on this week's Peace & Possibilities podcast, Rachael Baker is sharing how she figured it out. And of course, it's never a straight line there.

And because yourself really does know, you can figure it out by following your intuition, believing you can do it, and NOT listening to people telling you you're not cut out for something!  If, of course, you BELIEVE you are!

What do they know, anyway?

They may think they know about you, but only you know when you know. How could they possibly know about you?

The good news is that you get to decide. Because you have to LIVE your life. Not the person who told you that you couldn't.

We're all in charge of designing the life we want.  So stop managing it and create exactly what you want.

And for crying out loud, STOP second guessing yourself!
