We have to make decisions each day. So, while decisions may be difficult for you, you’re still going to have to do it.
I often postpone making decisions until the last possible minute, and in doing so I both prevent myself from taking quick action.
In doing so I carry the weight of that un-made decision with me. This causes a ton of suffering because I will continue to deliberate this decision throughout the day. That decision, the one I’m avoiding, is stuck in my mind at that point.
Over the years, as I realized how caught up in my head I was in decision making, I realized I was missing a key factor of consideration.
I wasn’t paying attention to the signals of my body. You could call these heart-signals.
When you’re caught up in your head, it’s easy to miss what your heart-signals.
The challenge for me, then, is to strike a balance between heart-listening and head-listening.
There’s no perfect mix, but it is something you can get better at. As you start to listen to your heart more, you start making decisions that better align with who you really are. And as you do this, I bet life will become more graceful and enjoyable.
The heart wants what it wants, and trying to override it with the brain doesn’t always lead to a favorable outcomes.
I invite you to join me in the effort to pay a little more attention to your heart and emotions. Get still for a moment and listen to your your body - it knows what it wants.
