Things To Think About, Monday, July 9th

Happy Monday, or whatever Monday you choose.


This week you may want to think about the eternal struggle between head and heart. Have you ever made a decision against your better judgement? How did that work out for you? Do you keep quiet about your thoughts to not cause any waves? What is left on the shore after the tide rolls out?

But, and there is always a but - are you afraid of the decision? Could you potentially be limiting what you can accomplish because you are afraid of taking risks? Are you making assumptions about what could happen?


Consider giving yourself the space to truly be introspective about your decisions and thoughts. Maybe in this safe place, you can explore the thoughts that make your nervous. Why do they make you nervous? Only you know the answers for your life. You can't Google or Bing it. Well, you can, but how sustainable is that for your life?


What's next? Try and gain some balance. Maybe you can respond to challenging emotions in a more beneficial way after taking that time to reflect. Remember, you are the boss of you. Or perhaps, it is time to refill your cup. Perhaps you have felt so much, that you are numb. Giving yourself permission to renew can help you gain a new start and a fresh perspective.
