When they say, “trust your gut”, or “go with your intuition” they don’t lie. It’s a real thing and you should follow it too! The gut doesn’t lie when something feels off, or when something feels right, and sometime we chose to ignore those feelings and do what we “think” is right.
Many of us try to follow our thoughts and reasoning when it comes to making decisions. As a result, we chose to ignore how we feel. Emotions today have almost become a taboo topic. No one wants to talk or even think about how they feel, let alone express and/or act on those feelings. And why is this? Some people would rather take a job offer that is more “logical” and know they won’t enjoy as much, than take a job offer at a place they would genuinely love and enjoy. But, we all do it, we do it because we “think” we are right and know what we want for ourselves- but in reality we do know what we want, we just aren’t listening to ourselves through our emotions.
In the long run you’ll be more happy and satisfied if you do what feels right rather than what you think is right. Life is not always about logic. Sometimes we need to take a step back to go a step forward, and that’s okay. You’d rather do what feels right and be happy, than do what you think is right and be dissatisfied.
I guess what I’m trying to say is listen to you gut, trust your emotions and follow your instinct. Don’t be shy of your emotions. Act on them, think about them, and talk about them. We need to bring this back and stop trying to ignore them! Being logical is a great thing, but sometimes is just not the right thing. Only you and your emotions know what can really make you happy, so listen to them! You do not need to do anything to please anyone other than you. Ignore what common society has to say! If you really want to do something out of the “norm” than do it! If you don’t want to go to a university and would rather go to culinary or art school than do it! If it makes you feel happy it’s the right choice, and I’ll support you all the way 😉 Eventually others will respect and understand your decisions and choices too. They’ll admire you for doing something you love and enjoy- they’ll even start to envy you haha!
Do what you love and love what you do.
Listen to your gut, trust your emotions, and follow your instinct. Do what makes YOU happy.
Logic isn’t everything.
Do you listen to your emotions? do you act on them? or do you ignore them and do what’s logical?
I challenge you to take today and listen to your emotions. Ready, set, go! 🙂
Have a great day!
